Strike & Monkeys & A Freebie, Oh My!

Simply Kelly Designs has a new Strike Kit that is perfect for bowling photos.  Only trouble is, I don't have any bowling photos.  There may be some somewhere.  I remember Megan's Cosmic Bowling party at Homestead Lanes, although we can't seem to remember which birthday it was...maybe 13?

And I thought Amy might have some bowling party pictures of Molly, but no.

But, the colors are so vibrant and fun, and I love checkerboards and stripes, so I used this kit to make collages with recent pictures of roses and a butterfly bush from teh gold course, and the pretty azalia bush in our back yard.
Oh, love, love, love!!

I wish I had kept better track of what I did here.  I know I started with the pictures, two pictures of the pretty rose bushes on the 13th hole, from our May 25th afternoon golf outing.  I placed one on a checkerboard paper, using an Anna Aspnes mask, and another on the solid green paper, using another Anna mask, then I went nuts with acrylic brushes, fotoglows, cutouts, and blending.  The stitches, also from Anna'sMagic FotoBlenz Album #1, were the perfect finishing touch.  Well, those and the rose, from Anna's ArtPlay Palette English Rose.

After doing the first one, the 2nd one was a piece of cake...same processes - pictures, masks, cuts, blending modes and brushes.  I also used some papers from Simply Kelly's Celebrate Kit and the word art is from Jen Maddocks Everyday Garden kit.

These are going to look great side-by-side in my printed album:

And what's more fun than a barrel of monkeys!! While Molly and Lily are a little too sweet to be considered monkeys, I know there is plenty of 'monkey-see, monkey-do' that goes on among them.  How adorable are they??

These layouts feature a blog-hop freebie kit from Simply Kelly called Monkey-ing Around. 
The template is Lindsey Jane Template 14.
