Choo, choo! The Monkey-ing Around Blog Train has pulled into the Simply Kelly Designs station! Welcome.

I have to admit that when I saw the theme for this blog train I knew that I had to participate. I have 2 little monkeys of my own so inspiration for this design was abundant! This blog train freebie has expired. You can now purchase this mini-kit here.

I have the perfect photo to use with this kit! My daughter takes ballet and one day she was doing an arabesque when all of the sudden my son came running up from the kitchen table and did one too! There’s even a half eaten sandwich in his hand. :) The quote is a little hard to read on the preview but it says “monkey see. monkey do. monkey get in trouble too!”

My Swirls Template that I used for this layout is a brand new release and is on sale for $1 through June 7.

I signed my kids up for Kids Bowl Free program this summer. The day after preschool was over, I took my kids bowling for the first time with some friends. The kids liked it so much that the day after that they requested to go bowling again! That inspired me to create my new kit Strike.

The fun and vibrant color scheme for this kit was taken from the colors of our local bowling alley. Here’s my layout of that first bowling trip.

The kids were so cute and everyone had a great time!

Here are layouts using Strike from my creative team.
