His perpetual rooster comb is flat!!! Holy shamolies!!!! Bit by bit I've realized he's losing his boy face and gaining a young man face. This shot makes me a little misty-eyed as I see before me my boy on the threshold of manhood. It's all too fast! I can't even begin to tell how blessed I am that I get to be a stay-at-home homeschool mom. Sheesh! Too soon it'll be over...I have a friend who really doesn't like the sock monkey set. I admit it isn't a fave for me either, but my youngest begged me when she saw it - I'm a pushover, eh?! It's a really good set for kids though - teens snicker over it too. It has baby card potential. I saw the potential, so I got it. DD twisted my rubber arm.
I chose the colours from this fabulous K&Co. paper. I found another paper pack from Daisy D's that is all sock monkey as well using a bit more 'boy' colours. I think it was finding the sock monkey papers that helped me see the final piece to my sock monkey puzzle. Designer paper ALWAYS inspires me and gives me a place to jump into a project from. Coulda used some sparkle though...
