My favorite experience so far this summer was going to a place called Bearizona. Have you ever been there? It's just outside Williams, Arizona. It's a fairly new attraction to the area and well worth the visit.

You drive through the first section of the park in your own vehicle where you can view various animals in an open environment. My kids related it to Jurrasic Park! We saw big horn sheep, American buffalo, burro, white bison, arctic fox, and my favorite black bears! After the driving portion you can walk around the enclosed park to view some smaller animals like porcupine, beavers, badgers, red fox, lynx, and the baby and teenage bears. There was a petting zoo area with your farm animals and we saw a few birds of prey.

I wanted to focus my scrapbook page on just the bears though and I knew the Artbooking cartridge would provide the perfect background papers. Wood grain, so cool!  The Make if from Your Heart Volume 2 book provided me inspiration for the sketch.

The sketch in the how-to book just had papers in various sizes layered behind the photo, but I decided to create a pocket behind the photo for tucking in the brochure with the map. It will be a great memorabilia to keep, plus my son loves looking at maps!

I saved the negative cardstock from the "adventure" word I used on another project. I just backed it with some cocoa paper to make the word pop!

I just love the new Artbooking Cartridge and the pocket you made for the brochure is a great idea!

Love your layout, Amy! I am so intimidated by Artbooking that I haven't used it much yet! I just don't know what to do first! ;-) Thanks for sharing this great layout!
