Back in the swing!

Well I'm back in to my creative swing. On Saturday I finished up a 12x12 Monkey Swap. I made this monkey several years ago when I was a Creative Memories consultant. I hosted a class and made it with all the girls. It was so cute I decided to do a repeat and make it for a swap. I had to make 5 of the little buggers but it was fun.

Today I made a card for a friends b-day. I used a new piggy stamp I got and had fun with it. She likes pink so it allowed me to use up some pink supplies that I normally don't use in my boys scrapbooks. It's hard to see in the picture but I used a technique I saw on another blog. I put a stickles glob in the middle of the silk flower. It gave it a really pretty sparkle.

Tonight I'm working on some patriotic pages for a swap. I'm adding more detail than I thought I was going to so I'm gonna have to finish them up tomorrow night. I have been up since 430am with a throwing up DOG so I need to catch some zz's since both boys are asleep.

Have a great day!

I think your layout is very cute. Great job on the card too! I need to at least try to sit for a little bit and do some cards for your swap. I just need a few more days and I should be good to go! It looks like you all had a good day at Hershey. Man I miss that place. Every time we are home we try to go. Mostly it's winter though so we go for the Christmas Candy Lane! Hope all is well!
