Playing with Dinosaurs

My son really liked the Land Before Time videos. I remember when he created his own Dinosaur Village. He turned over the storage boxes that we keep the dinosaurs in, took a green blanket and draped it over the boxes to form mountains. I gave him the blue towel that he used for the lake. He played with this for over an hour. For this layout I used the Paper Dolls Dress Up cartridge for all of the cuts. There were several dinosaurs to choose from. Since they were accessories, they didn't have layers to them. I cut the images out in different colors and used my handy dandy scissors to trim and create the layers.To give the images some dimension I used my chalks to add shading and additional colors. I modeled the colors from the actual dinosaurs he is playing with. You may be able to tell on the palm tree the chalking. The others are not showing up as well in the pics.

Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day! (My Spring Break is almost over. Just a few days left.)
