Our First Elephant Ride - 2003 & I Found An Awesome Giveaway!

Before I get into my LO for today, you have to pop over to Gettin' Cricky to check out her "Giveaway Monday"! Omgoodness, you'll want to enter!!

This is going back a few years!!! Here is another LO from our trip to African Lion Safari in '03. I don't even know if Ashleigh remembers riding an elephant. Good thing for pics huh!! These are MASSIVE up close!! But what a ride. This is also back in my Creative Memories days, can ya tell?? Just getting into scrapbooking a little more here. I love looking back and seeing how far I've come with my scrapbooking. I would never go back and change everything....would you? I'd like to hear your thoughts on this one!! Have a great day!

You rode an elephant!! How cool!! Cute little layout. And to answer your question... NO.. I would not go back and change older layouts or redo them. When they are done.. .they are done and that style of that time period tells a little about ourselves. :-) We should have a "Show us your very first layout EVER" challenge. Ohhh... I bet there would be some doozies. LOL

I love that you are posting the older layouts. Such great photos and I love the little elephants on the page. I love looking back at the older layouts. I wouldn't change anything on them.

Elephant rides are so much fun! Shane and I have been on an elephant twice. What a ride! You know, CM was all there was for at a time, so I think a lot of pages look the same. I haven't re-done any 12x12's, but I am working on re-doing the 8-1/2 x 11 pages. As I do them, I can't help but wonder why on earth I cut all my pictures in circles and ovals!! Maybe that is why I like clean lines now, huh?
