My Little Man

Hey everyone! I'm just sitting here enjoying some watermelon before I head to bed (yes it IS only 9:30...so what?! heheh!)

The current challenge in the Last Serendipity Scrapper Standing contest is a Monochromatic one. We can only use one color but we can add white and/or black to the LOs.

As I was digging through stuff trying to find papers that didn't have more than one color in them I stumbled upon my pack of scraps from Cosmo Cricket's Get Happy line. I swear...this might be one of my favorite lines EVER EVER EVER!!!! There really are only tiny scraps left in the bag but I just can't bring myself to throw them away...so this challenge gave me a good opportunity to use some of them!
*sigh* It's full of bright, grungy, distressed colors and patterns that just make my heart skip a beat!

Anyway...here are two of the LOs I did using up scraps from it. (these pictures are older ones of my little man...but he was a cutie even then! hehehe!)
I just love the look on his face in this one! You can just tell he's wondering what he can get into. The strips behind the No. 1 are actually packaging from a set of Jenni Bowlin pearl flowers! :) Gotta love using everything. This one I dry brushed the black and then also added a VERY thin line of black paint around the edge of the whole LO. Zeke was 9 months old in this one. I used corrugated cardboard to stamp my "notepaper."

Ok, well I'm done with my watermelon and I guess I'll be off to bed. Night alL!
