Monkey Business

My second post for 2Crafty ! Make sure you comment on the 2Crafty Blog though, for your chance to win the fantastic chipboard giveaway ! The more you comment, the more chances you have to win !


Susan did it.
And so did Tammy.
Now, it's my turn.......

Call them banners, flags, bunting or what you will, but there is no denying that this is one of the latest trends to hit scrapbooking ! But don't panic - 2Crafty has it covered !

Ink it, colour it, cover it, emboss it, stitch it, or whatever you do to it, bunting is a great way to convey fun, excitement, and celebration in any layout, and, I think it really does in "Complete and Utter Monkey Business". I love this LO because it captures an "everyday moment" of my son, being a typical 10 year old boy, goofing off for the camera. The 2Crafty bunting just adds that sense of fun and frivolity, and makes it a little more "special" !

For my bunting, I have covered the triangle section with patterned paper, added lettering, and I have stitched the pieces to the page. I have also handstitched some "streamers" to tie all of the elements together.

Keep an eye out for retreat pages and photos...coming soon !
Had an absolute ball !
