The Monkeys Stand For Honesty

Can you guess what we did today?
A hint…

and while you are thinking about that…
A layout
Suzie, from Love Scrappin’, sent some yummy goodies from the Pink Paislee Father Christmas range
I had to make a layout and use a technique with paper
This is the page I made


I made some paper scrolls and tied it all up with string


I’d seen this technique a few times, on other people’s work, and really wanted to try it out
Was super easy and I just love it on this page


One of the coolest things about the Pink Paislee range are all the gorgeous prints you can cut out


Did I say gorgeous?!


So how did you go with guessing what we did today?
Yesterday we took Megan and Jessica for another holiday at Poppy’s house
So today the younger 2 and I went for a drive
We went to Zoo Doo
and got to see lots of animals
like emus and ostriches


llamas and camels



deer and wallabies



snakes and tigers


miniature ponies and white lions


and as you can see we got to feed some
But there is one photo I haven’t shown you
I’m saving that one for a layout and hope to share that, and the story, soon Smile

Pin It Now!
