Just a quick post to show a banner I made for my Great Nephew Leland. My niece Tia wanted to go with a monkey theme...which was perfectly fine with me. I call my kiddos monkeys all the time. So this fit right up my alley. Besides..It was a perfect excuse to play with my new Cricut Expression.
This is a close up of one of the monkeys. I made one for each side.
For the bananas I cut three half moons and put them together to take the shape of a bunch of bananas. I would love to take the credit for that idea but I can't. Betsy, a dear friend of mine from the MemoryWorks Message Board is the creative genius behind that one. Thanks again Betsy!!
After adhering the "bananas" together I cut just the tips off to give it more of a blunt look. Then outlined and colored the ends.
Then to finish them off I added the letters.
Until next time...Keep those creative juices flowin'
