Welcome to day two of The Red Hatters Blog Hop

You should be hopping here from Lindsey at  LA Georgia Paperie. If you have lost your way or need to go to the beginning of the hop then you need to make your way to Dusti at Scrapping with Cricut.

Today I have something special for you. I did scan it however my scanner is not 12x12 so I only scanned it twice and stitched it together because that is the important part. The only thing you do not see is the very top with says "Southwick's Zoo" which really has no effect on the layout so I didn't bother scanning another two images and try and stitch that little bit on. So with that being said, here is my page.

You can't read it but that talk bubble reads, "Anyone see my hat and camera?????" 
I really layered that camera, trees, and the monkey on the left is also layered.
Here is a closer look.
See the leaves he is almost sitting on? Those look so natural if I do say so myself.
See how it looks like he is eating the camera strap?       
Here, maybe you need another look.
I also like the way the leaves and branches come across the camera. 
Guess we know where the camera is.
Look at the monkey on the right, he has the hat.
I just love the way his fingers grip around the rim of the hat. Don't you?
 Keeping with the red hat theme of course the hat is red as they are everywhere even at the zoo.

I won't post the ingredients yet. That will come at a later time because I want you to leave me a comment and tell me what you like about the page most of all. One comment per person and please include your email if you do not have it in your profile. Blog candy is posted in yesterday's post. All posts from yesterday will be combines with today's so if you commented both days then you have double the chance to win. Good luck!
