Flying Monkey Sassy from Off to Find a Wizard Release!

I'm so excited and happy that you stopped by to visit!  If you've come to my blog from Judy's blog, you're on the right track.  If not, had over to the Sassy Studio Designs blog and start from the beginning!  I don't want you to miss a single thing! Wasn't Judy's project wonderfully fun?  She's one of our newest Design Team sisers and we're so glad and lucky to have her!  And we're so glad that we have some fabulous new designers on our family!  I'd love to welcome:


I'm so excited to welcome you all and wish all my other stamping sisters much love, happiness and good luck!

You can get all the details on the opportunities to win some of these fabulous images and celebrate this fabulous release and different versions of this classic movie and book!  We have a tic-tac-toe board this time and I chose flying monkey, bling, and ruby slippers.

The flying monkeys used to scare me so when I was little!  I always pulled the covers up over my head and clutched my sister's arm when they came only  But somehow, this sassy monkey doesn't make me squirm in quite the same way!  I think her sass totally rocks!  When I saw her, I envisioned her trying on those ruby slippers before she left to return them to the Wicked Witch of the West!  So, her being the fashionista that she is (I just love her coat and hat!), I can imagine her concern in how these slippers go along with the rest of her.


She's colored with copics and I used some different circles and oval Nestabilities to frame her and the computer generated sentiment.  Her buttons, braid on her hat, wings, and shoes are done with Stickles and are mounted on the shoe with foam pop ups.

Gosh, she's so pretty!  Who would think she was really some pesty, little monkey?


I loved working up this shoe and it's a wonderful template from Ellen Hutson you can find here.   The paper I used was from American Craft and it was very heavy and hard to bend around the back for the heel.  Gotta give a shout out to Sara and Mary for their suggestions for adhesives to hold it together!


Now ease on down to road to the outstandingly talented Alaine's blog and see her fabulous project.  I just know you won't be disappointed!

Good to know I wasn't the only one those monkeys made uneasy as a kid. This one, however, is definitely not scary. Awesome job on the shoe.
