Please... Not Yet...

Roxannee says, KAYA!

I did not realize that I have done some hybrid scrapping before. Alby, thanks for this challenge.

One of the joys of motherhood is when your child just does some crazy things that will wipe away your whinges and problems for the day...This one in particular, I know all of you are familiar with is something that I will cherish. It is a symbol of a child's innocence and carefree personality. I forgot to type {priceless} on the photo so I just used a rub on... I edited the photo using iPhoto and layered masking technique on GIMP, emphasizing the saliwang sandals.

Your quirkiness just puts me in stitches all the time. This is so typically you- funny yet moody, almost always doing things upside down. You make our home happy nd joyful. The laughter you bring just always remind me that life is indeed wonderful. I don't mind the noisy footsteps that I call "pitter pat" when you come along the hallway. It brings music to my ear. Someday, putting on your sandals this way will change. You'll figure out that it's the other way around. Well now, I like the way you do it. Don't change it yet for now 'coz I really enjoy it. Not yet, don't grow up yet my baby.
Love, Mommy
