Canis Lupus

I used the Get Picky sketch #8 for this layout.  Get Picky has two challenges each month, an inspiration challenge and a sketch challenge.  Check it out, lots of great work going on there!

Wolves fascinate me and my top priority while we were at Denali was to observe this creature in his home.  I had high hopes, so many of our campers were going out during the day and coming back with wonderful stories of their wolf sightings.   I don't know how many times I got on that bus in Denali to ride through the park to see wolves but it was mostly a bust for us, everytime!

The photo at the bottom is the only one I took from the bus.  That was fun, we were actually observing a lone bear and off in the distance we see this wolf.  Well the bear had been lazing in the grass until he spied to wolf.  Then the bear gets up like he's  going to chase the wolf; the wolf sees the bear and starts running while looking back over his shoulder.  It really was quite comical. The bus driver said that the bear was probably bored and just wanted to play with the wolf.  I don't know about that!

The top right wolf pictures I took from the car through the front window of the car and the other two I shot from the motorhome on the day we were driving out of Denali to go home. 

I used the BasicGrey Curio papers for this, they seem to work well with my nature photos.  On the right behind the photos I've used a piece of Core'dinations black magic that I embossed using a Cuttlebug Victoria folder.

I love the Dusty Attic ferns and Tribal Design that I sprayed with Olive Vine Glimmer Mist. 

I see I need 1 more follower to make 100, yipee.  Only 50 more to go to give away my blog candy.  Check out my blog candy at the top of my sidebar. If you're not a follower, please become one.  If you are, please tell your friends!  I appreciate it!! Thanks for stopping by!
