Monkeying 'Round

Challenge # 66 from Creative Prompts (My Playground) made me instantly think of the playground that was right around the corner from our temporary living situation last year.  Here we were, in a new city, stuck in a 2 bedroom condo with 2 very high energy boys.  What is a mom to do???  Any decent mom would find a source for those 2 boys to burn some of their energy, so off we went...



A 2-page LO.  Yes, it's been a long time since I've done a 2-pager.  The funny thing is, that's ALL I used to do.  I like the look of 2 coordinated pages in an album.  I got over that!

I love my title with the polka-dots.  I think I just love polka-dots in general.  These were made with paint and then Liquid Glass.

Who doesn't love a sock monkey?


  1. so freakin' clever! Did you liquid glass the entire letters then put little pearl accents for the polka dots? Love that you got to use your sock monkey chipboard, he's so cute ... really like the black background, too ... makes the photos pop off the page! Love the HUGE ric-rac ... if I could get more of that, I would in a heartbeat ... the pics are great (did you use your new camera?)
