Safari Boy Punky-style....or is it a new dessert recipe???

This is my altered Junk In My Punk with Safari Boy....LOVED making this album with all the glitter and the yummmmy sherbet and lemon chiffon with baby blue and dark chocolate brown (sounds vaguely like dessert)!

The monkeys, lions, giraffes, elephants and crocs are all so adorable! First off, I removed the pages of the book from the binding to work on them more easily. I misted the canvas page and some manila tags ((with a combination of Shimmerz Vibez (Sunset Strip) and Tattered Angels Mists (Banana Pudding Chalkboard & Mimosa) and set them aside to dry. Then I inked the edges of the remaining pages with Staz-0n ink in Timber Brown, including approx 1/2" along the spine edges. I cut out the Palm tree scenes from the papers for several pages, including the front cover leaving the natural corrugated board to be the backdrop. On the remaining pages I covered with patterned cardstock, added some photo mats with the backside coordinates, making pockets out of some of the mats (I LOVE double-sided cardstock for this)! For the acrylic tag pages, I didn't do much other than adding a border, as they will fit a 4" picture perfectly. Then I embellished with the cute cut-out Titles and Journaling tags, added some chipboard pieces, ribbons, tulle and tags. The cardstock comes all glittered and is SO adorable and really doesn't need much to embellish! This book was made as a baby shower gift, so there are no pics...thanks for looking!
