Hey everyone! I am back from my work trip and I had to get back in my craft room and create!! I received this sweet image from Angela as part of a challenge swap I am in. Sweet!! I decided to use it for the Retro Sketches #2 challenge as well (but of course you know I'm too late to add it to the challenge .. sheesh!!)
And the final project also works for this week's CAS-ual Friday challenge #44 - to use a pattern, an image, and a sentiment ... and still keep it clean and simple.
I picked up this georgous paper from my local scrapbook store last week (Ring Around the Rosie by October Afternoon) and wanted to cut right into it (or I would just hoard it!! LOL).
I kept the whole thing clean and simple to allow the focus to be on the cute monkeys and that beautiful background paper. The tearing and the texture on the strip of yellow paper adds just enough oomph.
And notice the boy monkey's tie ... he just looked too plain so I decided to give him one. A bit of diamond stickles on his tie and her hair piece makes all the difference!!
Thanks for dropping by for a visit!
