Spunky Little Monkey

Hey there, friends!  I have been thinking about all of my scrappy friends caught up in this horrible weather situation...I hope all of you are home safe and sound today!  I realize that I take our mild Florida weather for granted a lot of the time.  My thoughts and prayers are with all of you!

Despite the freezing cold temperatures, here's a page to help warm things up a bit.  I based this layout on the current sketch #65 on the My Scraps and More Sketch blog.  Stay tuned for the new Design Team to be announced soon!  They'll start designing with our sketches in February.

Here's the sketch by the awesome Wendi Robinson:

I decided to use my sunburst stencil again to create a fun and colorful background.  I used yellow spray and the turned the stencil and used a blue color.  Love how it turned out!  I added some washi tape strips to add a bit more interest in the rays.  I also stamped a bit to accentuate them.  I layered a lot of my leftover Jillibean Soup papers here, along with lots of the cardstock stickers.

I have been added tangles of thread to everything lately...I just love the way it looks.  And, as usual, I cut my title on my Cameo in white cardstock and then painted it orange and pink.

I added in some random leftover vellum pieces, too.  Here you can see how everything is layered together.

Color, color, color!  Love it so much...the bright and bold colors here are my favorite!

I added in a few buttons here and there.  This one is peeking out from the paper layers.

It doesn't bother me when the washi tape curls up at the end...I think it just adds to the fun and whimsy look.

I hope you hop on over to the sketch blog and check out all the sketches...we have a new one up every Friday! 

Thanks for looking today, and Happy Hump Day :)
