Mary Campbell's blog.
This month our blog hop is suppose to feature something retiring, something from the summer mini, or a sneak peak. As they say, two out of three aint bad.
This scrapbook page was something my demo came up with for our June stamp club; and I thought it was just perfect for this blog hop. It has things that are retiring at the end of June, it has items from the summer mini catalog and it has a Monkey! Monkey's are notorious for the havoc they cause at the VC Rocks Hotel. (Of course, sometimes I think it might REALLY be a few out of control Rockers! LOL)
This scrapbook page is made with retiring colors: Glorious Green, Creamy Carmel, Chocolate Chip, Only Orange, and Pink Passion. All colors I absolutely love and will miss greatly. Also, the stamp set Enjoy is retiring along with the brads. All the punches used are staying-they will just be a new style except for the flower trio which make cute little hands. If you like punch art, get that one right away.
The flowers and grass are made from Tropical Party from the Summer Mini catalog. The flowers were made with Versa Mark and clear embossing powder & cut out. The centers are brads from the bold brights set. The bamboo hut is Creamy Caramel put through the Big Shot with a texture plate, then sponged with Chocolate Chip ink to make it look more like wood. The wood lines are made with a Chocolate Chip marker. The window frame is Chocolate Chip strips about 1/2 wide-and the curvy ends were free hand with a pair of scissors. The "string" is a white gel pen. Real hemp could have been used as well.
I hope you enjoyed today's project. Maybe you can catch some little monkeys of your own. To continue the blog hop visit Deborah Robb
