>Spicy Jungle Theme Challenge

>As’salaamu’alaykum

Well, I told you we would do it in spices and we did ! It was so much fun – well at least Muhammad had loads of fun, so I tried to stay out of it.
We used cinnamon sticks for the tree bark because that is almost obvious
Then we used different spices for  the bush of the trees – the first one is a mixed chilli spice, then origanum, paprika and tumeric.
The little monkey on the left is all-spice and cloves – he is hanging on a origanum vine.
The grass is whole cumin seeds.
The birds/parrots are cardamom.
And for that extra special flavours sachets of chilli salt was sprinkled all over the page !

I want to thank you once again not just for the challenge, which really gets us going each week but the opportunity to get really creative and have an enjoyable time together !

Much love
Carimah & Muhammad
Cape Town, South Africa
