Monkey Business - Michelle

Susan did it.
And so did Tammy.
Now, it's my turn.......

Call them banners, flags, bunting or what you will, but there is no denying that this is one of the latest trends to hit scrapbooking ! But don't panic - 2Crafty has it covered !


Ink it, colour it, cover it, emboss it, stitch it, or whatever you do to it, bunting is a great way to convey fun, excitement, and celebration in any layout, and, I think it really does in "Complete and Utter Monkey Business". I love this LO because it captures an "everyday moment" of my son, being a typical 10 year old boy, goofing off for the camera. The 2Crafty bunting just adds that sense of fun and frivolity, and makes it a little more "special" !


For my bunting, I have covered the triangle section with patterned paper, added lettering, and I have stitched the pieces to the page. I have also handstitched some "streamers" to tie all of the elements together.


Don't forget to keep commenting for your chance to win the chipboard giveaway !

Until next time - Happy Crafting, and Good Luck !
