Happy Monday!!

It's Day 6 and we are still hopping! I was a little slow posting today but it's well worth the wait. You should have arrived from Liz. Or if you've missed the beginning and want to start there please visit Kristy's blog. There is a wonderful Grand Prize to be had if you follow these directions:

The grand prize is being sponsored by Tricia from Little Scraps of Heaven and she will be the last blog on the hop. In order to be eligible for the grand prize you must leave a comment on every blog in the hop, as well as become a fan of Little Scraps of Heaven on Facebook and follow the new Design Teams blog HERE.
** This is mandatory in order to be eligible for the overall grand prize.**


And here's my project for today:


The photos are a couple years old but I wanted to use this hop as an opportunity to help catch up as well as showcase some wonderful paper piecing. I used the Fun in the Sun Monkey set and picked the "swimming monkey" and the "monkey with innertube" patterns. I found a wonderful sketch from Sketchy Thursday's that helped jump start me.  The pattern paper is BoBunny- Sun Kissed and that's where I drew my title inspiration from.


I matted the Sun (font is Mistral cut with SCAL and Don Juan Cricut) and pop dotted the Kissed. The two little monkey's sure look like they are having fun in the sun.




 I enjoyed putting this layout together. Sometimes digging through older photos brings Happy memories to the surface and help brighten a gray day. Your next stop is Misty. Remember I'll be drawing for my Blog candy on Thursday. There is still time to become a follower and leave a comment. Here's my prize:
