Little Monkey

I really enjoyed making this layout. I am going to submit it for two challenges. The first one is to Lets Scrap for their sketch of the week. The other one is to Practical Scrappers.

A while back I met a lady in one of my yahoo groups. Denise and I became fast friends and have been following each others blogs. I love the layouts that Denise makes. If you would like to check them out the you can find her blog here

Denise just became a Design Team member for Practical Scrappers so I thought I would check it out. What a great site and they have amazing layouts and cards that their team members submits. They also have fun challenges that you can submit layouts or cards for. I noticed that this weeks challenge is using stickers. Will it just so happens that the layout I just finished has lots of stickers so thought I might as well submit it.

Here is a close up of the 1st page

and the 2nd page

The colors in the 3rd picture are much closer to the real colors in the layout. Not sure whats going on with my camera lately but the colors have been off.

The layout is of my little Grandson Jacob and the monkey is the first gift I gave him when he was born. The shirt he is wearing has the See No Evil, Hear No Evil and Speak No Evil monkeys so his little monkey was nice enough to pose in those positions for me, LOL. I took pictures of the monkey, cut them out and then pop dotted them. The stickers and the striped paper are the Monkey Business line from Reminisce. The bananas paper came from some I had from sock monkey paper but I'm not sure who makes it. I don't usually use stickers but I really liked these ones. The vines let me shape them a bit so I could get them to go where I wanted them to go. The leaves were separate so I could add them where ever I wanted. The title, goin' Bananas, monkey crazy and separate bananas are from the Monkey Business set also.

I hope you all liked the layout.
