Monkeying Around


I was looking through some photos the other night with my daughter, as I had the urge to scrap something fun.  Upon seeing these photos, my daughter started to sing the song she had created the day she got Billy Jean her sock monkey. The beginning line of her song would work wonderfully for a title too so I went with the sock monkey photos.

Over at Let's Get Sketchy, the challenge for this week was Anything Goes and decided to play along.  I chose a sketch from their blog's July sketch posts that fit with my two photos.





Supplies: patterned paper, cardstock stickers, and twine (MME), cardstock (Bazzill), chipboard (Simple Stories), glitter letter stickers (MLS), cardstock letter stickers & year sticker (Echo Park), corrugated letters (Jillibean Soup), gelatos (Faber-Castell), gesso (Golden), ink (CTMH), pen (Staedtler)



A little MME Lime Twist from my stash was the perfect accompaniment for these photos.  I added a little Cotton Candy coloured gelato gessoed bubble wrap stamping to the background page in place of patterned paper and got creative with my title typography.

Here is the Let's Get Sketchy sketch that I used:





A fun layout to commemorate a fun childhood memory!
TTFN,
