I used the gorgeous Natural collection for my layout and tag.  This collection has such gorgeous colors, it was perfect for my nature photos  of a trio of Dall sheep that I took at Denali National Park in Alaska.
Here's my journaling:
Over the 5 years that we lived in Alaska we made many trips into Denali National Park and only once did we get "up close and personal" with Dall sheep.  Typically you only see them high up in the hills and on the ridges. 

However, the summer that we campground hosted was such a treat and one of our favorite memories was the day we saw a "posse" of male Dall sheep just hanging out at Polychrome Pass. We often saw them on our weekly trips to the Toklat ranger camp at mile 53, but on one particular day we rounded a bend and saw these three young males walking down the center of the road, and they weren't moving either!  We immediately dubbed them the Bad Boys of Denali!  Well pulled over to what little shoulder there was and just watched them.  One particularly curious fellow came within 8 inches of my window!  I love this shot with his tongue sticking out!!

Here's a tag I made also using Authentique's Natural Collection.  I used Prima's static stencil and Studio 490 gold embossing paste.  The flowers are Petaloo and Alda made the bird from air dry clay and I painted it with iridescent watercolor paints.
