This project is for Emma from
"Throwback Thursday"
where she chooses an older cartridge, a theme and ask for a challenge. Emma has nice sponsors and a giveaway comes as a prize for the winner of the challenge.
Below you find my "copy n' paste" of what Emma wrote on her blog for this challenge in case you want to participate.

""For this week's challenge, I am featuring the cartridge "Zooballoo"! This is a CUTE cartridge that not only has animals, but also has a cute font! The theme for this week is going to be an "ANIMAL" theme! So if you do Not own this cart, then you can use any "Older" cart that has an animal on it for you to use on a project of "Your" choice! Here are the details on how this challenge works:

****ONE entry Per Person Please.""
Here is my entry

  A Bookmark 
made with the 
Animal Kingdom Cricut cartridge. 
(I do not own Zoo Balloo).
I use the head feature cut at 3 inches. I did some doodling and inking. I also used a stamp from my stash: "Go Wild".  

The instructions for the giraffe are so very easy.

I took a piece of thick chipboard and cut it at 7-3/4 inches high by 1-1/2 wide. I covered  it with textured cardstock from DCWV using a strong adhesive. (I used Scor-Pal tape). I inked the edges. I then cut the giraffe head from the Animal Kingdom cartridge at 3 inches high on thick chipboard for the base and I used the hide contour to eliminate the marks. I then cut the head again at 3 inches high: the shift and the no shift one on different patterned papers. I used the Scor Pal tape again to attach the head to the base. I put the tape on the thicker part of the head and eyes. This way I would have a "clean" area to slide the book page to mark. Does it make sense?

If you have more questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.
