A Day with the Penquins

Welcome to another project at Cricut FANatics. Diane here from the blog http://happyscrapperdiane.blogspot.com with a quick and simple project. A couple weeks ago, we went to the Aquarium and my 3 year old granddaughter loves penquins so her parents arranged for her to do the meet the penquins. She got to go into a special room and learn all about them and get to touch and see them other than behind glass. She was so excited and had the best time ever! I thought in addition to adding this to her scrapbook, I would make her a little frame to put in her room. I used the cartridges Base Camp and Animal Kingdom.  It was fun to create this easy project for her.
