Crazy, Cute and unique


I absolutely loved the main photo on this page. Its funny but I had been trying and trying to get the perfect photo of these two little monkeys. I did actually get a really cool one (the small photo top centre on my LO) but when I looked through all the pictures that I had taken I found that it was the crazy ones that really stole my heart. Their personalities really shine through on these photos.
I used last year's OA Christmas collection to scrap this page - I have been trying to use up my older Xmas lines and I have managed only to buy 2 or 3 new sheets of Xmas paper this year (OA ofcourse).
I wanted to use white spray ink on my Kraft background cardstock but I couldn't get it to show up well so instead I took the top off my white Adirondack paint dabber and used the handle of a paint brush to dribble paint onto the cardstock. it takes longer to dry this way but the bright white effect is well worth the wait!
My banner elements are Kaisercraft stamps.
I based the page on this sketch from Sketchabilities. I turned the sketch upside down and added a few extra elements.

Have a great weekend :)

I must say, these sorts of shots are much more fun than any other!!! Wondered how you did those banners - glad you explained - they had me bluffed. Good on you using up old papers...& thanks for your comments on my travel diary. It really is more diary than piccies...but that's me writing, writing...sozzy...still writing...heeheee!!!! the red zigzag stitching here...always find LOTS to look at on your LOs:):)
