I figured that there would be a lot of dog projects entered for the pet challenge so I decided to go with a lizard! Unfortunately our lizard, Hungry Hippo passed away about two months ago. He was a little green anole and the boys miss him. We will probably get another one, but not until daddy is home on a more regular basis and not traveling as much because taking care of a lizard is not mommy's cup of tea so to speak!
The lizard is from the Boys Will Be Boys cartridge cut at 4". I used Colorbok pearlescent and Best Occasions Prismatic papers to piece him together. For the tongue I just cut a thin strip of paper and curled it around my Gypsy stylus. The background papers were all from my scraps! I tore the edges of the yellow paper and then inked it with a lime green ink.
The best thing about participating in all of these challenges was the amount of scraps I used up! The only full sheets of new paper I used were the 3 sheets I used for the scrapbook pages I did. Everything else came from my scrap basket!!!
So... today Parker graduates from elementary school. I have been dreading this day for awhile now. I have found myself shedding tears often, especially throughout this last week. Moving up to junior high is such a big step! I am going to miss seeing him in the halls, or his classroom, or in the lunchroom on my days that I am at the school. It feels like just yesterday that I was walking him through the big double doors at the school and into the kindergarten classroom to meet Mrs. Dreyer for the very first time. Our baby is growing up....
Parker at 3 years old practicing his Prince Charming skills. Great...now I'm crying again! Hope everyone has a wonderful day. I am going to try and get through mine with my water proof mascara.
