- For the page: Color the Color Me™ fanciful sparkles paper with Gelatos diagonally from the upper right corner down to the lower left in this order: Chocolate, Peach, Watermelon, Acqua Dolce, Chocolate, Watermelon, Peach, and Chocolate. Fill in most of the white background solidly. Wipe the colors with a baby wipe, using clean sections of the cloth for each color.
- Cut 1¾"x12" Color Me™ fanciful stripes paper and color from one end to the other with Chocolate, Butterscotch, and Chocolate Gelatos. Wipe to blend, then mat the long edges on coral cardstock with ⅛" borders. Mat again on brown cardstock with ¼" borders, then on black cardstock with ⅛" borders. Glue vertically to the sparkles paper, ⅝" from the right edge.
- Stamp the ostrich on Stolen Moments teal/tan herringbone paper, the pony on ivory lace paper, and the giraffe on gold tiles paper. Cover each image with embossing powder, tap off the excess, and heat to melt the powder. Cut out each animal, leaving a narrow border. Glue to coral cardstock, then trim the ostrich to 2½"x3¼, the pony to 3⅛"x3", and the giraffe to 2½"x3⅜". Mat each on brown cardstock with 1/16" borders, then glue as shown.
- Trim a photo to 4¾"x3¾" and one to 5"x7". Mat each three times on cardstocks, varying the widths and colors, then glue as shown. Cut out the Color Me™4"x3" and 2½"x1⅜" labels. On the large label, color the frame with Acqua Dolce and the center area with Peach and Watermelon, then blend each color with a baby wipe. Color the small label with Acqua Dolce and blend. When dry, journal the event on the labels with the computer and printer.
- Insert a ½" brad in each end of the large label, then foam tape it between the photos near the left edge. Glue the small label as shown. Make a 4-loop bow with the natural jute and tie the center with a 4" strand. Trim the ends, then glue the bow to the large label below the right brad. Tie one natural and two black jute shoestring bows and glue to the animals as shown. Insert a ¼" brad in each carousel pole top.
