The World is a Book -- featuring Authentique and Chic Tags :)

Hi everyone :) 

I wanted to share a mini album that I made and am entering it in the latest challenge at Paper Issues :) 

Their latest challenge is The World is a Circle :) 

Recently the family and I went to Prescott, AZ for the day and I wanted to create a mini album showcasing the photos I took that day :) 

I used Authentique's Abroad collection and Chic Tags  :) 





A little close up about the zoo we visited -- I think it is wonderful that this zoo takes in animals that were/are injured and keeps them safe since they can't go back into the wild :) 






Chester is an inside joke between me and my BFF!! Years ago... we were in Laughlin, Nevada and we were across the river from all the casinos taking photos of the lights on the river ... and a RACCOON approached our vehicle and we were feeding it Cheetos thru the car window ... well then we got freaked out because RACCOONS are full of disease etc ... and wondering if it could CLIMB into our car if it wanted more Cheetos ... lol!! We never LAUGHED so hard in our lives talking about Chester as we fed him! HA!!!! 

Anyhoo... this story is important for what's at the bottom of this post!!!! *wink* :) 

 
























And when I finished this mini album -- I had two extra pages left over ... so I decided to make a little surprise for my BFF that I mentioned above in the RACCOON story (I told you the story above was important to what was happening here in the end)  *wink* :) 

Here are the two extra pages :) 



And here is what I made her ... all about CHESTER!!! :) 






Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
