For a chance to win our prize or top-3 spot, 
you need to tell us why you've made your choice.
That way our team and readers can appreciate why it's your favourite.

This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
Your Favourite African or Australian Wild Animal (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Here are the beautiful creations made by our Design Team to get your mojo flowing:

This is a tough one as I am really fond of koalas and kangaroos, but for me it has to be the Big Cats.  Technically tigers have long been my favourite wild animals, but since they're mainly native to Asia I've opted for Leo, the King of the Jungle to represent my Big Cat theme instead.

I had to chose the lion also.  It's really the mama lions I admire so, they take such fiercely good care of their cubs.   

My wild animal that I love the most is a Koala Bear and I held one once when I went to Australia..soft and cuddly..

I have chosen an African animal. Zebras have the most beautiful stipe patterns and all different. This cute one is great for a whole host of occasions. 

I have picked a koala for this challenge. The look very cute and soft and I would love to cuddle with them. It was a difficult thing to pick just one animal, so many animals have something special.

I have chosen elephants.  They are such gentle giants and don't deserve to be hunted for their tusks.

 Being a child of the 70's I absolutely loved Skippy (the bush kangaroo), it was always on TV during the holidays. Anyway I didn't have a kangaroo in my stash so I have chosen to use a cute and cuddly koala!!

Being practical about this, I thought of all my favourite African and Australian animals and then narrowed it down by which one was I most likely to ever be able to cuddle.
Koala!  Although I've heard a rumour they will wee on you.  I'll chance it.

No hard choice for me. On our trip through Australia we saw a lot of kangaroos. I had the chance to cuddle with baby kangaroo in the Zoo of Steve Irwin. 
Just like Chrissy I also had the chance to cuddle with a koala bear. Great experience.

So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge and show us your style.
Don't forget, you MUST explain WHY it is your favourite to be eligible to win.

Good luck, and happy crafting.
Hugs from the AYLI girls.
