One little monkey…

… jumping on the bed!

My second layout using my counterfeit kit, and using a sketch from a Two Peas in a Bucket NSD challenge (link to the challenge is here).

The sketch:

My layout (click to enlarge):

I loved being able to pull most of the bits for this from my kit, it made it all come together so quickly! I added the orange circle of paper, and printed the little monkey from clipart. The title is from a song my daughter sings at playgroup about monkeys jumping on the bed, luckily my daughter has not yet bumped her head like the naughty monkeys do in the song! I added some paint (the white circle and the swirl) and then doodled on top. I hope the page reflects the fun and energy in the photos.
I had been waiting to scrap these photos for a while, I like it when I catch my daughter playing something by herself. The other day I managed to get this picture of her:

These ‘My Little Ponies’ were mine when I was a little girl, I kept them all this time hoping I’d have a daughter. This is the first time I’ve caught her playing with them by herself, she said they were all reading the magazine. It was so sweet! Now I can’t wait to scrap this photo! x

  • Beautiful daughter. How sweet to get such a cute picture. Your layout is really cute I like how you added the saying.

  • Oh, I so love the story of the my little ponies being yours as a little girl! Sweet layout! Liked the use of the colourful felt letters for the spelling of jumping.

  • I always love to see her happy smile – I’ve said before that I think it is very like your, haven’t I?! Amazing collection you have there and it’s so nice to see a new generation enjoying it
