Monkeying around...

This is a special request notebook I did for a friend. She is giving this away to a friend who loves monkey's and was just diagnosed with an illness. So hopefully this will cheer her up a bit:) After I had it all packaged and ready to go, I should have put "hang in there" as a sentiment, just wish I had thought of it earlier! This has been the most fun I've had with playing with paper and its the quickest project I've put together. It usually takes me 2 days or so before my ideas click! The notebook base is from Staples and I covered it with a Mossy Green from CM, then Bazzill Brown, and some pp(from a BIG pad). I used my Paisley BG from SU! and inked it up with Certainly Celerly(on vanilla cs) for a soft subtle background. The monkey and branch are prepackaged from Elizabeth's LSS(local scrapbook store). I used my SU! slit punch and distresser for more detail and aging. I also had the chance to break out my new Nestability dies, which I used for the sentiment cirlce(the one that is embossed) and stamped with my snap stamps. Lastly, I added MM vintage brads and Mike's ribbon. Elizabeth, I sure hope this gift lifts her spirits:)

OOH too cute. I am taking a page from your little tags and making them for my friends daughter. She's so much like Gracie. I asked for those nestabilities for Christmas. Do you just LOVE them? LMK
