Whimsical Wednesdays Challenge #17~~ Humor LOL!!

Morning Bloggers!!

It is time again for another Whimsical Wednesday Challenge.
Ready for this one....Challenge #17 is...
"Sense of Humor"
For this challenge you must include something funny, whether a funny photo or image and/or include some wording related to humor such as laugh, giggle, chuckle, funny, hysterical.
You get the picture...right. Lets make the DT laugh :)

So alittle background before I share my LO.
I posted awhile back about going to a birthday party with my son and the party having Nickle City Reptiles as their entertainment.
Not only do the kids LOVE seeing all the animals that Jeff brings...the adults LOVE listening to how funny Jeff is.
I attached a video link so you can see a small glimpse at how funny Jeff is.
He goes around locally and does birthday parties, the fair and school events~~ BUT~~ he also is a pretty regular Late Night with Jimmy Fallon guest.

Cool for my LO I did one of "Rockey" ~  the American Alligator
When Jeff brought Rockey out it was not funny :)
The kids were excited but screamed also. Not many of us get to see an alligator up close.

It just so happened that Rockey was in the mood to perform that day.
Doesn't it look like he is smiling?
The letters were cut with my cricut from Cuttin' Up and I added some white gel pen doodles

This picture cracks me up...LOL.. it really looks like he is laughing :)

Crazy that Jeff was able to put Rockey on his back and tickle him....actually I think he was just rubbing his belly but it looks like he is being tickled.

I added a couple of info circles as my journaling using my 2" circle punch.
I inked around the outside with coffee bean pigment ink.
The rub ons are from DCVW~ Safari Kids

Here is my alligator from Create a Critter. He is too cute not to put on this.
I embossed him with my Tiny Mosaic cuttlebug folder.

So there you have it :)
Do you think this is funny?!?!
Hope so and hope you will join us this week over at Whimsical Wednesdays  for our "Sense of Humor" challenge.
Remember you have 2 weeks to enter. Don't forget to check out the other DT's LO's. I know they are all so funny and so very inspirational.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Hahaha love it. Reminds me of the song 'Never Smile at a crocodile' But an alligator... lol. So cute! Love the way you accented the font and the embossing on the alligator is perfect! x

  2. Like the alligator scrapbook layout. Growing up in FL I saw many an alligator and sometimes even in my yard since most of FL is swamp land.

  10. Great layout!!! It does look like he is laughing!! :)

  11. I love this layout! It's so cute! I grew up in South Florida and we had huge gators in our backyard all the time. When we were little, we'd swim in the lake behind our house and there would be gators as close as six feet from us. I guess when you grow up with them, you're not as frightened.

  12. Cute layout! The embossing on your crocodile looks great!!!

  13. This totally cracked me up. It does look like he is smiling, and then laughing. He was probably looking at all the yummy humans thinking..this is my lucky day, LUNCH! LOL. I love love your journaling tags, and that you used a gel pen for the writing. It makes it stand out so well. Love those rub ons too, I have never used them..have to give them a try! The CC alligator is perfect on your LO. You really captured some great photos, and they were so perfect for this challenge. Such an inspirational LO. Awesome job with this challenge. Hugs!

  14. Your layout is beautiful! What an awesome party! Hugs, Cathryn :)

  15. This is an AWESOME layout! Love the alligator...but from a another room! LOL That is so cool that you had Jeff come and bring all those cool animals for the kids! I love your Alligator and he looks so great embossed with that folder! Love it all! And yes, I think he is smiling; perhaps laughing while getting tickled! TFS

  16. What a fun, cute and happy layout!!! Being that my family is from Louisianna and I've spent so much time there, I've seen many alligators!!!

    My son would love your layout -- he loves reptiles of any kind... strange man, my son!!! LOL!

  19. Super fun LO Jessica! The pictures are fantastic and perfect for the challenge! I love the one where the alli is laughing :) We have a place called Reptiland close by that we visit regularly (it was on John & Kate Plus 8 once or twice) and we have some funny pics like this as well as of the kids petting the alligators! Of course their handlers are always holding the mouths shut when they do but the kids faces when they touch them are hilarious!! I love the way you designed this and especially the circles for journaling! The gator looks great!

  20. Fabulous story, Jessica! I love all the little additions to this layout and the white gel pen accents look fabulous!
