Happy Birthday AJ!

My grandson AJ turns 11 this Friday and I just had to make him something using monkeys which he has loved since he was little. I found these adorable monkey stamps at and they were colored with my copics. The sock monkey paper I think came from Michael's but I can't be sure as I have had it for a long time.

The circle sentiment is by Catslife Press.
These little monkeys are soooo cute!

The decorated box came from Michael's and was painted inside and out with acrylic paint.
I made these monkeys from Super Sculpey granite clay.......
they really look like the real sock monkeys!

What a cute family!

And here is my gorgeous Birthday Boy!
Happy Birthday AJ.....Grammy loves you very much!

I have entered into the following challenges: / Songtitle - Hey Hey Were the Monkeys! / Happy Birthday / Sew Special / More than 2 Legs / Make it 3D

Blessings Gloria


  1. Gloria again you are my hero !!!
    The things you make are more than just wonderful creations because they are always created FOR someone you love ... That means so much to me to see someone do that. I just seem to make cards that look as nice as I can get them to but don't usually have a person in mind to give them to. Your little treasures are made from your heart ...
    Love, Janie
