Cheeky Monkey in Thailand

My nickname for my husband is 'monkey'. When we were staying at Bandara Resort Koh Samui in Thailand for our honeymoon they had monkeys on all the signposts and also monkeys on the doors to indicate if you wanted room service or not. I manged to snap this photo of Ben pretending to be a monkey next to the sign while we were on the way to the pool one day. He, of course, hates this LO and personally I'm not quite sure I pulled it off either but I love the photo! :)


This is my DT entry for The Lollipop Ladies for Challenge #50 which was bananas and leaves. The bananas made me think of monkeys and I've also used the yellow background. I was able to use my new Big Shot to die-cut the leaves.


The LO was also inspired by Once Upon A... Sketch. The challenge this month was to use the sketch below and journal about friends. My husband is my best friend and I was so glad that I got to experience my first international holiday with him. Journalling is on the back of the LO.


I'll also enter this LO over at The Corrosive Challenge Blog. Their theme for #154 is "Cheeky, Saucy, and Sassy". Using an image and/or sentiment, we want you to make us laugh, chortle, snicker, and guffaw!

The current Use It Tuesday challenge is to use uncut paper. The green background piece is one I've had since near when I started scrapping so it's good to finally use it.
