Little Boy

This is my last creation out of Coordinates Collections' January Amish Quilt kit, featuring Cosmo Cricket's Circa 1934 line.

My layout was based on Sketchabilities' #44 sketch challenge:

The photos on this LO are of my little boy, taken last year when we spent our vacation somewhere up north. He just woke up and was still in his pajamas when I took these photos, hence my journaling: "bagong gising" which translates to "just woke up" in English.

I love the dimensional effect that baker's twine creates on a layout. Also, it helps fill out negative spaces. :)

I actually made this LO with a long title in mind, i.e., "A Day in the Life of My Little Boy." It's such fun using Cosmo Cricket's tiny type letter stickers! :)

These word stickers were also taken from the tiny type alpha sticker set. The adjectives were a perfect fit to describe my little boy.

Journaling reads: "Bagong gising" (Just woke up). Manor Hotel, Camp John Hay. Baguio City. June 2010.

Have a Blessed Sunday and TFL. :)
