This is Chris' Halloween costume for this year. He LOVES the doctors outfit....in fact he was giggling, and jumping up and down the minute he put it on, I had to settle him down for some photos....he adores it and that makes me giddy too!! I had him pose with both of his arms on his hips...lol....you know like the doctors on the show 'ER'.
The stamped journaling says, 'dr. e. head neuro-surgeon.' For some reason, I just wanted it all playful and in small caps.
Now the sentimental part of this layout has to do with the die-cut sentiment on the upper left hand corner....and also the fact that this is a doctors costume....the sentiment says:
"Promise me you'll always remember. You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. -A.A. Milne."
I love that and I am humble....and it makes me wonder how much Chris has accomplished thus far, and the potential he has as an adult....he is truly such a gifted child intellectually and I do feel he will do many great things as he gets older. He may become a doctor, a musician, an engineer....wherever his talents may take him....I don't know, but I do feel in my heart, he has immense potential....and for that, I admire that saying.
There are no traditional Halloween colors on this layout, since I was matching the paper colors with his outfit.
