Daisy D's Challenge

A recent challenge on Daisy D's site prompted me to create with their new Bambino sock monkey line of papers. The challenge was to create a non traditional project using their newest papers. I've had the sock monkey fabric from Moda for years and I knew their was a reason I was holding on to it for so long. I visited a newly-opened IKEA recently and purchased the child's chair for $15..not bad. I played with the fun designs on the seat cutting out various circles, stars and moons. Carefully cut each monkey out and paraded them across the seat top. I used papers, brads and stamps all from Daisy D's, lots of mod podge and stazon ink for a fun project that will be around for years. I'll let you know the results of the challenge winners. Thanks for stopping by.
