Monkey Frame

For my niece's birthday I created a decorative frame for her parents to display a birthday photo of her.  The frame included Eeyore and a butterfly as well as first birthday and her name.  You can read all about it and view pictures HERE.  I was pleasantly surprised by how many people really liked the frame and was super excited to bring in a new order.  The order I received was for a little boy's baby shower.  The request was for a monkey theme with the colors blue and cream.  They also wanted the first and middle name on the bottom of the frame.  This is the design I came up with!
What do you think?

I used Create a Critter for the monkeys and the vine and was able to open up my new cart (Happy Mother's Day to me) Nate's ABCs for the letters.  I love how schoolbookish the letters are (lol, not really sure if that is a word but I like it).
Now some close ups...

 Sorry for the horrible photos, it has been raining here nonstop for a few days now and I had to drop off the frame on Monday so I didn't have any time to take some new photos outside.

 I am not sure if you can tell but the two monkeys are pop dotted just a little bit to give them some dimension.

 How stinkin' cute is this little guy!!!

I absolutely love making these frames because they are so fun and easy to make and the sky really is the limit.  Who am I kidding... I love any excuse to craft and make something beautiful or just plain cute.  Thanks for looking :)
