It's a Jungle out There

I feel clever, oh, so clever, I feel clever and witty and smart! And I pity any title who didn't make the cut tonight.

We have a raspberry patch, and the bushes grow like weeds! Every time I see it, I remark on its jungle likeness. Thanks to the Color Room Palette sixteen and Lydell's sketch, I came up with this way of doing my title. I feel clever... Do I need to sing again? LOL.

I started this layout trying to make a scene with those grass stickers. The Queen of Scenes: Deana Boston sent me these stickers a while ago.  You have to check out her work, it's so unique, so scenic, (and now that I've tried) so inimitable!  So this is the best I can do, my scene: some grass, lol, not that I'm complaining, but it's just not that... groundbreaking... lol

I think I flipped out when I realized that the set of Jungle stamps from My Favorite Things would work so perfectly with my layout!! I mean, check out this lady with the binoculars!! It is so me, so my style: so humorous, in this context :)
Come check out the Color Room and try this palette and sketch, swoon...
