Monkey Girl~Digi Layout

Here’s what I finally came up with for the pictures of Amy climbing the tree…

Monkey-Girl

I thought I’d try making it just a tad larger so you could see it better. Please let me know if this is too big, though.

I tried doing this one as a 2 pager, but the template I chose as my starting point just wasn’t doing it for me. I closed the layout down and did some crocheting instead, so my brain could simmer on what I wanted to do. This morning, I scrolled through my digital templates and kits and found one called Monkey She, Monkey Do, and it flowed from there. One of the fun things I did (at least I thought it was fun) was to add the little girl monkey to the tree image. I used my eraser tool in PSE 7 and took away some of the tree so that she looked a little more natural, like she was meant to be there. I liked the result. I didn’t think it needed much journaling, other than the title and date, because the layout itself shows what is going on. Also, I couldn’t figure out a spot for any journaling anyway. LOL

Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you have a great day today. Remember  the armed services members and their families who gave the ultimate sacrifice so that we could enjoy all that America has to offer.

Jeanne, you have been busy! This layout is great! I love the size of it too. We call our boys "Monkey Boy", because of all the tree climbing they do. You have inspired me to scrap their tree pics.

Happy Memorial Day!

This is a great layout, too. I love the colors and again, you've chosen the PERFECT kit to show off the photos of your cute little girl! I love what you did with the girl monkey in the tree. VERY cute.

The larger pic is great!
