So Week 31 was designed my Vicki Stegall, and I have to admit- I couldn't resist re-coloring one of the papers to charcoal grey, because yellow and grey is one of my FAVORITE combinations! So without further ado....

Here's the kit:
And my layout:
It's basically a one year subscription where you receive a new digital mini kit full of inspiration for the scrapping a layout that week. I really needed this inspiration because it's August and I've done hardly ANY scrapping this year, which equals lost memories of Jules that I "think" I will remember, but 20 years from now I won't. So I signed up for the subscription, and will be working to get caught up! We are currently on week 31, and I'm just starting, but hey- who doesn't love a challenge? :-)

Fruit Loop Necklaces- Fill a bowl with Fruit Loop cereal and have each child string the Loops onto a string or ribbon, for a quick and easy Fruit Loop "candy" necklace.
Monkey Dough- Grab some orange and brown play dough (or even better- make your own), and let the little monkey's play! Hasbro even has a "Coco Nutty" Play Dough set, perfect for thie occassion.
Animal Crackers- An easy treat!
Animal Chicken Nuggets- for a lunch that's sure to please.
Banana Pudding- A yummy dessert that's quick and easy!
Banana Bread- For a more grown-up atmosphere, like at a baby shower, fresh baked banana bread makes the perfect treat.
Banana Smoothies- If you're prepared to man the smoothie machine, this is a fun (and healthy) treat for the kiddos!
Banana Split Bar- A create-your-own banana split bar is fun for all! Gather your bananas, ice cream, and favorite toppings for a treat that's sure to please everyone!
Color Coordinating M&Ms- Use clear glass jars with orange, brown, and green colored M&M's. If there's a Michael's near you, they have started carrying bags of single colored M&Ms. Also check other party stores, like Party City.
Napkin Rings- Using the patterned papers and Party circles available in the Bean Sprout Studio Printable Party Kit, make your own napkin rings. Cut the patterned paper in 1.5 inch wide strips, cut in half, make a loop and use double sided tape to secure. Using a 2 inch circle punch or scallop circle punch, punch out the party cirles and adhere to top of ring. Slide in your folded napkin with silverware included, and voila!
Drink Cups- Visit your local dollar store for a supply of cheap color coordinating plates, cups, napkins, table cloths, and utensils. Get plain orange, green or brown drink cups and decorate with a punched out party circle. The easist way to do this, is to print the party circles on a solid sheet of sticker paper. Simply punch out the circles using your punch, and you'll have adorable matching cups and a fraction of the price.
Banana Bunches- Banana bunches are the perfect accessory for the party. Simply include them on your table setting or dessert bar. They are the perfect decoration, and after the party is over, you'll be stocked up on bananas!
A Barrel of Monkeys- Not just for playing with! These adorable tiny monkeys can be everywhere around your party! Hang them off the cupcake stand, the streamers, the M&M jars, or anywhere else!
Monkey Centerpieces- I found these adorable centerpieces for just $3.99 at OrientalTrading.com
Monkey Treat Bags- Using the printable patterned papers from the Peek-A-Boo Monkey Printable Party Pack, cut squares wide enough to fit over a cello bag (sizes will vary depending on which size you buy). Fold the sqaures in half and staple to the top of the treat bag. Print out the "Thanks for Swinging By My Party" Gift Tag from the Printable Party Pack, punch out, and adhere to the middle of the bag topper. Fill the cello bag with Monkey inspired treats, like these cute Banana Treats or Monkey Pops from OrientalTrading.com:
Monkey Tote Bags- Another great find from Oriental Trading- Monkey Tote Bags! Just $5.99 per dozen. Honestly, how can you beat these prices?
