La-La Land Crafts Challenge #3 BLING!

The challenge this week at La-La Land Crafts blog is BLING! I hope you can see all the blingy stars in the sky around Sleeping Whiskers. I thought this was the cutest image because poor Whiskers is just snoozing away...with this little chick waiting and waiting for Whiskers to wake up.

This little chick could be my daughter Abby, and I could be Whiskers. When Abby was a wee one (around 3) she decided to be a morning early bird. Every morning I would wake up to this child staring at me...her little face was no more than 2 inches away from my eyes...When I would open my eyes, she would smile at me and say "Mom, I need sumthun" mind you- I was not in the habit of serving her breakfast at 5 or 6am! It took a long time to break her of that habit, but I still remember her staring at me at 5 am...26 years later! (and yes she is still an early bird girl!)

Stamps: Whiskers Sleeping by La-La Land Crafts, Sentiment by SU! celebration set Happy Harmony

How sweet! My kids are NOT early risers.....I would have killed them!! My daughter, Leah, knew that daddy was the one to come get them and bring them to me when I was breast feeding. She also knew that since I wear glasses that she got a more favorable reception at dad's side of the bed! I would put out my hands and feel their faces and say "Who are you? Who are you?" They still joke about that.
