First off, I want to say THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart to each and every one of you for making my blog what it is today! I never thought in a million years I would have so many followers, be hosting challenges, have spectacular sponsors, and even my own design team! I appreciate you all so much!! This hop is dedicated to you!! My way of giving back to you all!! I hope that you will continue to stick around in 2017 to see what we have in store for you!! New in the horizon will be our first ever Cyber crop! And I can not wait!!

If you know anything about me, you know I am WILD about scrapbooking and cardmaking and that's why my blog is wild animal themed! I just love animal prints too!

So my friends that joined me for this special celebration are bringing out their inner Wild child and sharing projects using either animal prints or featuring wild animals.

As I always say..It's a ZOO in here but I wouldn't have it any other way! I hope you enjoy this hop and thank you from the bottom of my heart for supporting me the past 8 years!!

On to my projects...

First up I made a few pillow boxes to hold movie tickets for a few special ladies in my life. Thought it would be cute to decorate them with animal print paper, washi tape, and of course some Miss Kate SVG files.

Next up I have a 2 page layout that is from a kit I bought at the scrapbook expo. I had to have it, well, just because of the wild animals! They are super cute! I am not a huge fan of this kit to be honest...I had to fussy cut everything out and they are laser printed so everything is flat. I really do prefer piecing my images. But none the less I hope you love the layout!

I tried to add dimension by pop dotting some of the images and inking!

I think this would be great for a baby's album or for a zoo trip!!

 Up next is my amazingly talented friend Christi!!
Here's our line up in case you get lost:

I don't have a cutting machine or a working printer so can't use any of the SVG files but love seeing what you do with them. What great prizes to be won...and I'm excited to check out all the blogs and projects too! If I happen to win an SVG prize or cut files, please award it to someone who can use and enjoy them!
