Monkey Do

This month is going by pretty fast…Mother’s Day come and gone….working on completing the next set of designs for http://dtsartblog.blogspot.com…at first my creative juices just wasn’t flowing, but than a lightbulb went off…I can use the girl monkey to finish the pages for my granddaughter’s Dance Recital scrapbook page.  Since she enjoys ballet I used that theme with girl monkey, ballet shoes, and ballerina silhouettes and here is what I come up with for my first of two projects for this week.

The second project took a little more thought.  I was surfing the Internet, looking at blogs, downloading files from www.http://www.craftcrave.com/ and came upon someone’s blog (don’t remember who’s blog so can’t give credit due to them) but they welded a element to the the side of cardstock, and I thought, why couldn’t I do that.  The sentiment , Thanks A Bunch was printed out with my printer, punched with my scalloped punch and the blackout scalloped circle was created from a file downloaded from Penny Duncan Creations….http://pennyduncancreations.blogspot.com/.  Here is the project…

The scrapbook page was done using Make the Cut software and the card was done using Fairy Cut software.  I use these software b/c of the simplicity and ease of use…creating blackouts with Make the Cut is so easy than SCAL2 (just figured out how to use on Fairy Cut) and with Fairy Cut you select the option to cut, and my Expression takes right off.  Enough of my sales pitch…lol

Now to creating my son’s birthday card, plus the next project for http://dtsartblog.blogspot.com  I will also work on more items for the store at www.diecutdesigners.com … I sold some files this weekend which gives me an idea what buyers like.  And I would like to thank those who purchased my files…you don’t know how discouraged I was becoming and this has helped me to keep right on working on files.

Thank you for checking me out.  Check out the other designers projects at http://dtsartblog.blogspot.com/

Really cute! And my youngest daughter just started dance, so I'll have to keep this in mind :)
