The Male Room...Mr. Banana

Hi everyone,
 
I'm playing on a new-to-me challenge called The Male Room.  We were asked to create a project using  fruit.  It literally took me about a day to think about what to create, until Mr. Banana came to life!  Ha! I die-cut the banana using Create a Critter Cricut Cartridge, and I used the Billionaire Cricut Cartridge for the fancy hat, moustache and cane.  I really liked the way it turned out.
