A Visit with Finn and a Sock Monkey

What a gorgeous few days of fall weather we have had. Last week it was so cold in our house I threatened to turn the furnace on and this week I’ve threatened to turn the A/C back on. Talk about fluctuating weather! Wow! It was so nice today and I was feeling better (but still have laryngitis) we decided to head out to Rondeau Park for a bike ride – but we kept it down to 27.5 km. We haven’t been on bikes for three weeks and didn’t want to over do it.

I thought I would share another scrapbook layout today. This one is on my sister and I visiting my daughter and Finn – and I took Finn the sock monkey I made for him. Oh yeah, speaking of the sock monkey, I have it back. It turns out that about a month ago he was playing with it and started turning one of the eyes – and turning it and turning it and turning it – until it ripped the sock material and came out. Not sure how I’m going to fix this one! I think the super hero sock monkey is now going to be a pirate sock monkey with a patch over one eye!
 
Anyway, here’s the layout.

 I had just made the sock monkey the day before my sister and I went for our visit and I didn’t have time to make many clothes for it. The sock monkey does not come with clothes patterns. You have to design your own – hence he is wearing shorts and a cape so he is a super hero monkey. The paper came as it is shown so all I had to do was add the strips of paper here and there and the photos. The journal tag turned out pretty good. I just hand drew a “onesie” and cut it out. Then I coloured it with Tombow markers.  I ran it thru the printer to do the journaling. I hate my hand writing! There is a stamped sentiment at the top and I added some rub-ons here and there. A couple of quick pages to do for sure.

Here are the individual pages.




Cheers
