Alex is 15 now, but he was only 2 or 3 in these pictures. When I was sorting through my photos Tuesday night, these were the ones I was most excited about finding again. I use the Bazill In Stitchz' template for the circle, and I started stitching with baker's twine, but it wasn't showing up very well with the white background, so I changed to thread the color of the blue jeans. I inked the edges of the white pp with Faded Jeans Distress ink. The brads, buttons, stickers, pp, and the first parts of the title are all Basic Grey's Lime Rickey. The sun is a brad buddy I bought years ago, and the rest of "sonshine" are foam Thickers. TFL!
