Monkey Business

I remember when I was younger (gee, that was such a long time ago) and we would go to the zoo....didn't you just love going to see the monkey's?  Certainly all the other animals were great to see...but there was something about those little monkey's swinging all over the place and having so much fun.  Maybe it was seeing their child-like spirit that appealed to me as a kid.  Whatever it was - I could stand there for such a long time and just watch them and smile!

Deedee's Digis has brought back that memory with her August Digi of the Month - Monkey Business.  Now not only is there a fabulous set to play with - but did you know that at Deedee's Digis Deedee is celebrating 1 year being back in business!  Congrats Deedee!!  And she is being so generous this month....Not only is there the usual offering of the full set of the month at a reduced price or free with a $10 purchase....but she even has a freebie available from this set here.  Why would you want the freebie?  Well, not only because it's just soooo cute - but because if you play along with us in August - you will get next months set for FREE (and it's absolutely adorable - trust me!).  Plus there are weekly come on over and play with us!!!  You'll have a lot of fun and be joining a great bunch of crafters.

For my project I used the outline image and colored it with Spectrum Noir markers.  Since the image has the wood barrel, I used a wood grain embossing folder (I think it's Sissix) as the background layer.  In my stash I had this rick rack pom-pom stuff - just a small piece and I never really knew what to do with it....and this was the perfect time to use it!  I love when things just come together.

Here's what you get in the whole set:

Come on over and join us at Deedee's won't be sorry!
