"The Queen Is lioning Around" Scrapbook Layout

Created this Lion scrapbook layout using photos of mine from KC Zoo Jan. 25, 2013.

I have a quote that I like to use when I showcase an animal scrapbook layout with photos of mine. That quote is: "Beautiful People do not wear Beautiful Furs, Beautiful Animals do."

The sleeping Lion in my opinion has the ahhh factor. 

When hubby looked at the layout he said, " The Queen is lioning around."

Used DCWV scrapbook mat and Kraft cardstock. Distressed the edges of the Kraft with Tim Holtz paper distresser &  TH Distress Ink.

I found the dot to put above the 'i' in 'lion' after I took the photo.
