m for monkey

Today was a special day, we celebrated one of our former student’s baby boy with a Baby Shower.  Three of the girls and I put it together and it was so fun to be able to shower his mama and him with wonderful things.  I’ve been working very hard all week on little bits and details to make the party fun.  I’ll just show you the card tonight and then later this week some of the other things I did.  

The little guy’s name starts with M and they have nicknamed him monkey :)  I used PTI’s set Tiny Treats for the monkey, and Flourishes S’More Fun for the banners.  You’ll see a banner theme in what I did for the party later this week too.  I layered the monkey on the die cut letter and paired it all with Lori Whitlock All About a Boy designer paper.  We had a orange and blue sort of theme.  

The sketch is this last week’s Mojo Monday one.  

Just some simple enamel dots as accent and Flourishes Tailor Made Classic Bookplate Die for the sentiment tab.  

And here is the adorable Mister Monkey himself.  SO precious.  His Daddy took this picture not me, I just didn’t want to leave it unwatermarked.  

I’ll be back later this week with more from the Baby Shower!  Thanks for stopping by!
