My little Monkey Man!!

The challenge at 123 this month was this:

Colour:  Lime Green
Word:  Really
Technique:  Fabric

So I set about and created this layout....

Monkey....Well my youngest would have to be more of a monkey than Riley was/is!! He is forever climbing, falling and has so much mishchief in his a real sneaky kind of way (lol!!) as he is the quieter one of the would never think I really wanted to do a layout which was totally inspired by the yummy BG Oliver paper (yes I still have some left!!). For some reason the green came out more 'green' than lime green but I promise you it is actually lime green!!

My word 'really'....

And how gorgeous is the cute monkey bottle top...from HERE.  Super super cute :))

Just a close up of my fabric...used it to back my photo.  Love the texture and depth it gave to the layout..will have to do that again I think.

Okay think that is the last of the challenges I will be able to achieve this month! I am really looking forward to another great scrappy month!!!
