Birthday MEME Challenge & My Trip to the Zoo!!

Hi Everyone!! This coming MONDAY is my BIRTHDAY & I am going to celebrate by hosting a fun linky {inspired by my recent trip to the zoo}!! I hope you all stay and join in on the fun!!


Last Tuesday, I played hookie from work and took a trip to Wildlife World Zoo with my husband... just the two of us! We really have not had a date in several years and I don't get out very often, but I wanted to go to the zoo... so we went!! 

I took a TON of photos with my camera and we actually had a really nice time. I took over 300 photos... however, in my defense, I am still learning how to use my camera...  

Last night, I got a chance to go through all of the images and edit the ones I liked. While doing so, a funny thought popped into my head... some of the photos would make the perfect template for a funny meme. Being that I was in need of a fabulous idea for a fun way to celebrate the day each year where I am forced to come to terms with the fact that I am getting older wiser, I thought it would be fun to host a little challenge with all of you! Although, I consider myself to be like a fin wine.. I only get better with time.. haha  

My Birthday Meme challenge will be really simple. I am going to share some photos that I took at the zoo with all of you. At the end of the post, I will provide a photo for you to use. Just right click and save the photo to your computer.  I would like everyone to create a funny meme using one of the images and include a funny birthday saying or quote on the image. Please keep the quotes "clean", but please feel free to be funny!! It does NOT need to be addressed to me.... this way, anyone can use the memes created...

WHAT IS A MEME, you ask??
Here is Google's definition:
...a humorous image, video, piece of text, etc. that is copied (often with slight variations) and spread rapidly by Internet user

and here is an example... I am giving this one to myself.. haha

Insert the picture into a post or share on social media using the hashtag #3ambirthdaymeme  and link the image (or social media post) to this post. Once you have posted or shared your custom Birthday meme, you can add your blog or social media post link to a comment below so I can visit your posts for a great laugh on my birthday!! Make sure to use the actual link to the blog post or social media post where you shared the image.

Feel free to link up any day this week!!  Birthday memes are timeless and you might create or find one you can use for someone else or that others can share.

If you are not sure how to add text to an image, you can download my free tutorial on creating cover pages to help you with that....

AND NOW... here are some of the photos I took at the Wildlife World Zoo here in Arizona.

I used several techniques to get PINK flamingos below...BECAUSE Flamingos do look PRETTY in PINK!! haha

Below is the image I would like for you all to use, but feel free to use any of the images above to create your birthday meme & have fun with it!! Feel free to cover up my logo in the image if you need to.

If I get great participation, then I will have a special freebie for everyone on my birthday, this Monday (Feb 23)!!
