My Minds Eye: Follow Your Heart Double Page Layout

I mentioned how much I love this new line riiight?? LOL-- I couldn't stop at just one single page layout, I just HAD to do another layout! This is also a project I did for Cord Scrapbooking Studio using My Mind's Eye: Follow Your Heart.

This layout is from my last trip to The Gambia {West Africa}. The Gambia is the home of Kunta Kinteh {you know--- ROOTS?} and known for it's bird wild life, and friendly monkeys! I have so many amazing memories from this trip but I have to say at the top of my list is Billijo National Forest where Baz and I hiked around on a trail surrounded by birds and monkey's! I had my back pack with me and earlier that day I had purchased some cashews, we pulled the bag of cashews out to snack on while hiking and it didnt take long for the monkeys to notice this delicious treat! Soon enough we were surrounded by hungry monkeys, we decided to go ahead and give them some {why not??}, they were very friendly monkeys, taking them politely our of our hands, I was so excited to be this close and have great interaction with them. I <3 monkeys!! At one point Baz sat down on a bench with the book bag strapped on while feeding a monkey, I look over and this sneaky monkey thought he was slick and was behind Baz trying to get some cashews out of the pocket where we kept them-- it was too funny! I shooed the sneaky monkey away and he backed down easily..... it was such a great experience, so much fun.
