Other Products Used:

Chocolate cardstock is your background. Cut the yellow patterned paper to 11×11 and adhere to the chocolate cardstock. Cut a piece of the brown patterned paper that is 7.5”x7.5” and adhere in the middle of the layout. Cut a strip of the red patterned paper that is 3” wide, adhere a little to the right of the middle of the layout. Cut a strip of the green patterned paper that is 1” wide, adhere up the middle of the red strip. Find and cut out the small green bordered journal block, cut it in half. Free hand cut along the design and then add to the top and bottom of the red patterned border.
Cut a piece of the dark green patterned paper that is 2.5×8.5. Adhere this piece to the middle portion of the layout. Cut a piece of the cream patterned paper that is 0.5”x9 and adhere on top of the dark green patterned paper. Find and cut out the “Let’s Monkey Around” title block. Find and die cut out the red mini tag. I added a burlap string bow. Find and cut out the dark green mini journal block, and adhere near the top of the layout.
I matted my 2 photos together, in white, chocolate and kraft cardstock. I added burlap string around the middle of the photo and tied a bow in the front. Adhere to the middle of your layout using 3D foam squares.
Stamp and die cut 2 large palms, and 3 small palms. I added colour to 1 large and 1 small using ink and daubers. The other 3 palms I used Chameleon pens for a brighter look. Stamp and die cut 2 of the flower chains, and added colour using markers. One of the flower chains I cut apart into single flowers. Using 3D Crystal Lacquer I added Prills to the middles of each flower. Stamp and die cut 1 of each the swinging monkey, banana monkey and coconut. I added colour to all of them using markers.
Shape all of your coloured pieces. I added the swinging monkey and flower chain to the top left hand corner of the layout. Add the title and banana monkey to the left of the matted photos. Add one flower and a large and small palm to the left of the matted photos. Add a cluster of the remaining palm leaves, flowers and coconut to the right of the matted photos.
