GKD Preview Day 2: Dino-Mite and Hopeful Hearts


dino park cover
Welcome to our Day 2 preview for Gina K. Designs!  Today we are sharing creations made by Theresa & Tami.  The first one, Dino-Mite was illustrated by the very talented Theresa Momber-it is the most adorable dinosaur set I’ve seen!  I was so thrilled when I first saw it because in November when my sister & her family visited, we took them to the Dinosaur Park which happens to be in the little town we live in and I got some great pictures to scrapbook!  First is the cover page of the little brown paper bag book I made.  I had drew the Dino Park and look how perfect the T-Rex image is that Theresa drew!  Of course the one she drew is a lot less scary than the real thing!  What is so cool about this Dino-Park is that it’s all outdoors so you walk a trail and go on a little scavenger hunt by looking for the rocks imprinted with a dinosaur footprint that is numbered.  You’re given a sheet of paper for the scavenger hunt that corresponds with the numbers so you can share with your little ones something educational about dinosaurs.  They have a souvenir store, playground and fossil-dig that was a lot of fun.  My niece and nephew thoroughly enjoyed themselves and so did the adults! I will share more of the album I made over the next week so you can see more-be sure to come back!
friendosaurus
This is one of my favorite photos I captured.  At the beginning of the trail, you can grab a little red wagon just in case your little ones can’t walk the whole way and can still enjoy the adventures!  Gabby, 4 1/2 pulled the wagon almost the whole time, even when her little brother was inside, she is such a great big sister & strong too!  I just had to capture this moment with them walking side by side, I just adore it and of course the sentiment, “YOU’RE MY FRIENDOSAURUS” is just PERFECT!  I hope they continue to stay close as brother & sister over the years.  Look how cute that other little dinosaur is!
hopeful hearts
Next up is Hopeful Hearts illustrated by Tami Mayberry.  It is a beautiful heart set with ‘HOPE’ as the focus filled with fabulous sentiments, quotes and Scriptures.  I chose to make a clean & simple one layer card, I always LOVE making these!  This card literally came together in about 5 minutes! 
Be sure to hop around all the designers & illustrator’s blogs to have your chance at winning one of these great sets Gina will be giving away!    Also, be sure to mark your calendar for our release party at StampTV which is full of challenges, chatter, full set reveals, new creations and contests!   It will be 7:00-10:00 central time on Thursday, Jan 7.
