6 - Monkey boy

Hi all!! Here is my layout!

For my testimony, I went with tell 3 things about your subject, use a transparency/vellum "container" to hold your journaling, illuminate your subject: shine the light on something the viewer wouldn't know by just looking at your picture.

-I told 3 things about my subject (my journaling reads):

Daniel at age7...
He is at his 2nd grade circus program...
His part was a handsome little monkey boy! 4-2010

-I put my journaling card in a vellum envelope that I made, and
-I told that he was a monkey in the program(wearing a monkey mask on his head, lol)

For my evidence, I went with

wood accent(background pp)
combined 2 different pp with the same color (the top half of the background and the top left hexagon)
metal charm star and mini paper clips

I have used one of the sketches from the new Creative Scrappers: Create with sketches ebook by Kristine Davidson!!!

Very cute LO!  I like the contrasts between the dark & light colors.

Also, thanks for your sweet comments on my #3 LO.

The "cheeky monkey" just makes me smile.   He lights up the page.  Love the hexagons and buttons  :)
