Tall Things

Momma typing:  Joseph does another animal layout....guess you scrap what you love?  --  He did this all by himself....All I did was point him to where the supplies were when he asked for Alphabets..paper...etc...  This colorful tie-dye ribbon he used is one of his own choices from the store he wanted to use it.   And he did the layout a few days ago and I just found another kids crafting website called Childrens Challenge Corner and their current challenge is Ribbons and Bows....  when I told Joseph about the new challenge site he knew he had just done this layout and it would qualify and he couldn't get me to post his layout fast enough...  We are also sharing this layout at ALPHABET CHALLENGE - this week the challenge is N = NATURE

So without further ado.....

My bff Erka gave Joseph a bunch of animal photos.  So he wanted to do a page and picked these pictures...had the title all figured out too.  SNAPPERS...too cute?...  He wanted to "stitch" on his layout this time so I helped him use my "ruler with holes" to punch the holes and then taught him how to hand stitch.  He worked one side of the paper and I worked the other (passing the needle back & forth) Mommy/Son project.  He picked out some of my mosiac tiles and some bamboo pp and he "kinda" fussy cut it...  I think it's cute...what do you think?

(Momma typing) This week's challenge at Frosted Designs is to use FELT on your project.  Joseph picked out this picture of our dog Zo'e hiding in our fig bush.  Joseph thought it was pretty funny.  He used felt leaves to further the "bushes" theme and an arrow to help point out the dog....he also named the layout DOG-O FLAGE (a play on words for CAM-O-FLAGE) --- All these are totally his ideas.  I was super impressed with the smart title he came up with!!  He even did the border.  I did remind him at the end that he needed to put the date on somewhere....not where I'd have put it...but it's not my layout!!!
