Oh, The Places You'll Go!

Isn't this just the cutest little image of a toddler on his tricycle?!  It's a Mo's Digital Pencil image sold in rubber stamp form at Stamping Bella that I embossed in white.

My inspiration was a picture at the Australian Web Store, Hard to Find. from the Split Coast Stampers Inspiration Challenge on Saturday.  It was done in pink but I changed mine to blue and added the Memory Box die cut tree instead of stamping a tree.  I just love this quote from Dr. Seuss that comes with the image. 

This sweet little guy reminds me of my 20 month old grand nephew, Landon whom I just joyfully babysat for last Friday.  Here he is as I was holding him on my lap and reading a book to him - look at those blue eyes!
I brought a big sheet of packing paper with me and I had Landon lie on it and I traced loosely around him with a black marker - to make a Landon Paper doll.  I cut it out and I asked  him to 'color' it.  I told him we'd put it on the fridge to surprise his mum and dad when they got home.
 He really seemed to understand the concept that this represented a paper copy of him - he even kissed it! (too cute!)
I put it up on the fridge with a magnet but after it was there just a few minutes - he wanted to take it off  and walked back with it to his coloring table - I guess he wanted to do some more work on it!  He looked SO cute walking around with it!
Then he brought it back to the fridge to 'hang' it up again.  Always the little helper! "Here, Aunt Julia, please hang it up for me!"
After a hard morning of taking a walk around the neighborhood, playing kick ball in the yard, reading some books, having lunch and coloring his Landon paper doll -  he fell asleep on the sofa for a couple of hours.  A day well spent!

Love everything about this! The image is fantastic and the addition of the die cut and sentiment are perfect additions. Landon is precious!

Landon is sooo cute Julia-sounds like you had a fun day-what a great idea to trace his body and then color it-have to try that one with Pheonix Daisy-she likes to color as well
this image is just too cute and I like how you embossed it

OMGSH, what a doll-baby! Landon is just precious! I love how he got into his project (You are so good to him!) There is nothing in the world quite as calming and soothing as watching a baby (or young person) sleeping. {content}

Your card with the tree off the side is uber-creative! Love it!
HUGS!
