The images in the Zoo Review set are ideal for males in general but I liked the idea of the giraffe for a suddenly tall teenager.
I've made post-it note masks for all five animals in the set so that I can sponge and stamp a quick background for them all. When I've finished, I just stick the mask to the stamp and pop it back in its case. The oak tree from Lovely as a Tree makes a great wooded background for the giraffe and I extended the grassy area with a River Rock marker.
The original sentiment comes from For My Family...
... which is also a great set for personalising your projects. Here I've used the 'son' stamp from the set, cut out with a square punch and popped up on dimensionals.
There's a 'nephew' in the set too as well as all sorts of other family members - many of which don't grow suddenly overnight!
This one sports a fun banner I made on the computer and printed off.
I have got completely distracted by my fabulous new Zoo Review set. It is the best fun ever and to think I almost didn't get it!

My lovely teenage son has turned into an eating machine. My daughter summed it up the other day. " "You've only got two moods haven't you?" she said to him. "Hungry and stuffed!" Talking of which I'd better get up to the supermarket! (And for all those who are wondering why I'd be visiting the supermarket at half past midnight, my blog posts are, of course, scheduled!)
See you tomorrow,
