Here are some close ups my first layout using the new Monkeying Around Collection!

Here is the step by step write-up for this project:
Trim a paper from the Monkeying Around Paper Collection to 8" x 7" and another coordinating paper to 11.5" 11.5". Distress the edges with the Tim Holtz paper distresser. Mat the larger piece unto brown cardstock and layer the other one in the center. Add your 6" x 4" and 4" x 3" pictures over the pattern paper in the center. Stamp the monkeys from the Palm Tree & Monkeys Cling Stamp Set, Monkeying Around Cling Stamp Set and Monkey Antics Cling Stamp Set as well as the leaves in different sizes, flowers and coconuts on white cardstock. Color the images using Prismacolor Pencils and blend using Odorless Mineral Spirits. Die cut each image using its coordinating die and pop dot them before adding them to the layout as shown. Finish by adding a die cut title on top of the larger picture.
