My Little Monkey

OK, I took the advice of those who responded to my post the other day in reference to this gift for my friend who lost her 18 year old son to complications from coolies anemia. I kept the angel wings on the monkey and added the title. I love the way it came out, it is so much better in person. I hope she likes it and does not get upset.
She always called him her little Monkey.
I was going to crackle paint the frame, but I didn't have time as I have to give it to her tomorrow & I just got the frame last night. (nothing like rushing right!!)
I will ask her if she would like it crackled & then I will do it for her if she wants.
Thanks for visiting!

Need some advice

I made this layout as a gift for a friend that lost her 18 yr old son 4 years ago to a blood disease.
(Wish it was a better picture)
When he was little she would call him her little monkey.
The advice I need is... do I put, My little Monkey as the title or do I leave it w/o a title?
I know the colors are girly but I made it to match the colors of her bedroom where I think she would keep it & I figure she could put 2 of her favorite pictures of him as a little one in black & white.
I am going to put it in a shadowbox frame that I am going to crackle paint, she is into shabby chic and the distressed look.
Also, I added Angels wings to the Monkey because now he is an angel watching over her. Do you think that is too much?
Need some help please.

Who stole the cookie from the cookie tray??

My Mom and I bake cookies every year and when they come out of the oven, we stick them outside on a banquet table to cool.
Well, this year we had 3 very interested visitors...

One of them was successful too...
Aren't they just a little cute?!!

Don't be grossed out, that was the only one he touched and he got to keep it....LOL
Then we put Kira on squirrel patrol to scare them away when they got anywhere near the table.
The kids had a blast watching the squirrels, my cat too!

Class and Teachers Gift ~ 2nd post

Kira and I made 17 of these adorable cocoa treat holders for her classmates.  The file is from Treasure Box Designs, she is having a %55 off of $25 for the 12 days of Christmas sale and there were a few files I could not resist.  Since I was looking for one of these, I went ahead and purchased it, it wound up only costing me a dollar and change.  Isn't it just too cute and we added a candy cane to stir their hot cocoa!

I made this adorable crayon wreath for Kira's teacher to hang in the classroom.
I found this awesome little cutie months ago on Jill's Blog.

I scrap lifted her exact design I loved it so much!!!!
All but the apple and the words are from 
She is having a TOTALLY AWESOME 70% off winter sale!!!

Thanks for stopping by!!
