Monkey Business and a Ricetta...




I made this mini clipboard today for The Scrapbook Factory...but thought I would also share it with you here...I am so in love with all this monkey stuff everywhere. I'm thinking this will be kitted and offered for sale at the store with the instructions if you're interested...If I bought some of these to kits to offer to you would any of you be interested? Just leave me a comment and let me know. The price I'm thinking would be $15 plus shipping (probably about 5$). The clipboard can either hang or is able to stand alone on any flat surface (there's a peg that attaches to the back). Finished it is 6x9 inches. Supplies Used: Daisy D's pattern paper Sock Monkey, Funky Monkey, Clipboard NicoleCrafts, Daisy D's Die Cuts, Color Box Ink.




Here is today's Ricetta I think we're on #6


and here is my layout based on the Ricetta...
This one is bazzill cardstock, Cosmo Cricket Halfway Cafe pattern paper, making memories letter stickers...

and now a little story for your reading pleasure...
On Monday I cooked dinner ( I know... but there's more) I made pork chops in mushroom gravy and they were really good but that's not really the story here. ..the story is that in the process of cooking (in true Amy fashion I used a pan that wasn't deep enough) the mushroom gravy spilled over which started a small fire in the bottom of the oven...ok for real...flames and everything...but you know...I do this once in a while, so I figured no big deal it will burn off...well it ended up making a huge mess (of course) so this morning I put the oven in it's self cleaning mode for about a minute and half before I thought better of my decision to try to take matters into my own hands and stopped the process calling Rob to "fix it"...he said he'd get to it later....ok..so meanwhile I had to make breakfast...popping in Landon't usual (tater tots) several minutes later the kitchen was filled with greyish black smoke, the smoke alarm is going off, and I pulled the tater tots out to find they were this greyish green color...huh?...so I have once again been banned from my kitchen, Mary Poppins ( my oven) has betrayed me...and a later conversation with my husband revealed that he apparently thinks I'm "like a superhero...gone very wrong..."ok thanks...
that's all for today...hope everyone had a nice night...looks like we're having takeout...

I'm not quite sure, but could the oven's self cleaning, change the color of the food? Oh heck who cares, you have the best adventure stories. I do hope your thinking about doing the story tags at Cathy Z. blog, you would have a cute book when it is done.

That clipboard is adorable and that seems like a good price. About the super-hero gone terrible wrong comment - hysterical!! I need to use that as my excuse for being such a poor cook. Have a good Thursday, Amy. See ya. Kellan

great looking clipboard, and sketch.

Fortunately my cooker doesn't have a self cleaning mode, but I've nearly set the kitchen alight a fewtimes. Thankfully we have a smoke alarm.

Tater tots were green? Tater tots for breakfast? I'll never understand kids! I actually can't get my kids to eat them at all. I loved them when I was a kid.
