MP3 Monkey

Hi friends!  Today is a very special day- it's my birthday!  I'm going to spend today doing all sorts of things I love- eating my favorite foods, watching a movie while snuggling with Sophie, maybe even some scrappy shopping.  I recently bought myself my very first iPod (up until now I'd been getting by with off-brand mp3 players) and when I saw this file from SVG Cutting Files, it was too cute to pass up.  I thought what better project to post on my birthday than a birthday bag?

I used the MP3 Monkey cutting file, cut at roughly 4 inches.  I drew on his mouth with a gel pen, and used some ink to give him a little pink on his cheeks.  I also found a couple of pieces of scrap paper in my scraps file that I thought matched the bag well, and then I found this chipboard frame and thought it complemented the colors nicely.  It's amazing how something that comes together relatively quickly (the longest part was picking out the colors to put onto the cameo mat!) can make a plain, old gift bag look so much better.

This bag is being entered into the following challenges:
