Here are some close ups of my layout:

Here is the step by step write-up for this project:
Cut two 6" x 6" coordinating pattern papers from the Monkeying Around Paper Collection and distress the edges. Add to center of 12" x 12" sheet of paper. Add a 4" x 6" and a 4" x 3" pictures over it and tuck in two pre-printed and die cut (using the Luggage and Tags Die) tags under the left side of the pictures. 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 and bananas on white cardstock. Color the monkeys using Prismacolor Pencils and blend using Odorless Mineral Spirits. Die cut each image using its coordinating die and add to layout as shown. For the larger monkey's face, fussy cut two hands our of white cardstock, lightly color them with the coloring pencils,  and add then around the pictures as if he was holding on to them. Finish by adding a die cut title to the top side of your layout.
