Newton's Nook Designs January Release ~ Day 1


Welcome!  Today we are showing off Newton's Nook Design's soon-to-be-released set: Wild About Zoo:


As you can see, the set has several images of adorable animals with sentiments perfect for valentine's day, anniversaries, and other fun expressions of love!  I decide to use little lion Newton and wrapped the twine Jen wrapped around the sets when she shipped them to create a fun texture mane:


(please click on the image for a larger picture).  I converted Newton from Newton's Day Dream into a lioness to snuggle with placed over this perfect background scene from a sheet from DCWV's 8" x 8" Safari stack.
