I have the same problem here as in my scrapbooking - not being able to choose the pics - so you're getting them all! But of course he was (and is) so darned cute i didn't think anybody'd mind. And besides you need a few pics to see all those spines starting from the top of his head and going down to the bottom of that tail. Each piece lovingly stuffed with volumes of that white stuffing stuff (what do you call that stuff? the word escapes me at the moment). I had to have been nuts even back then! Oh and don't forget to notice the gloves - too cute. I wish i'd thought to take pictures of his feet because there were shoe covers - to complete the look (don't want any sneakers peaking out to spoil the look). Tim Gunn would be proud - it was a complete ensemble and I made it work. But check out that kid in the picture. What a face - He absolutely adored this costume. You wouldn't know he had strep and had a fever of 103 now would you? That Halloween he was sick so we couldn't let him go to daycare - but we decided to let him trick or treat a few houses. He wanted to wear the costume so badly and show our neighbors. he was already on medication by then so i was only slightly pushing it. He and my husband went to a few houses and then came home.
ok... enough memory lane (that's Suzy Scrapbooker's department). Here's yesterday's postcard
A StampinUp! acorn from the Fall Whimsy set (discontinued i believe) - a little prismacolor and mineral spirits.
the colors on the scan of this one aren't true - the red looks a little too purple and in fact its more to the cranberry. I used some other stamps from that Fall Whimsy set and then used a dauber to apply the inks. That was sorta fun. It doesnt need to be all perfect (and it really can't be) and i enjoyed playing around seeing what i'd get! (boy am i getting over my perfectionism!!!) ok kids. Gotta run. Long list of ta-doooo's one of them being sending some oatmeal chocolate chip cookies (i baked yesterday) to that boy in the dinosaur costume. They're his favorites. Have a good one...
