Who are you? (Scraplift challenge)

The SM magazine runs the Scraplifting challenge in every issue, so here's my attempt.
This photo was taken when Sasha was about two years old. Here he's looking at the goat's sculpture in the Museum garden. It makes me smile, as Sasha's expression here borders on squeamish bewilderment, like who the heck are you.

There was a boy/ Kings at Wed Stamper

This piece is for Fede, we both love the Nature Boy song. Also as we are moving in a week, I don't think I'll have time to do anything sensible for Valentine's Day.
The difficulty will be to hide it until the day, and with all the packing will I find it once we move? :)
Stamps used: Paperartsy, Stampsmith (king) and Clearly Defined Alphabet.
The fool is an antique Tarot card image.

There was a boy
A very strange, enchanted boy
They say he wandered very far
Very far, over land and sea
A little shy and sad of eye
But very wise was he

And then one day,
One magic day he passed my way
While we spoke of many things
Fools and Kings
This he said to me

The greatest thing you'll ever learn
Is just to love and be loved in return.

(Nature boy by Eden Ahbez)

Magic Tree/LotusPaperie Tallest tree challenge

Sasha is a nature boy. He might hug and kiss a tree in the park like a dear friend.
And I believe he can see things that we don't see.

Small steps (OLW Steps challenge)

I love this photo of Sasha, and had this LO in mind for a long time, but finally the OLW challenge pushed me to start and finish it.
The message says:
"Some people call you a special needs child, but for me you're my very special boy.
You constantly move forward - one small step at a time.
You fully embrace life - disability or not.
I'm so proud of you!"
The chipboard frame is Technique Tuesday, painted with acrylics.
Stamps used: Technique Tuesday, Clearly Defined and PaperArtsy.
The fab tag is KF, I think. I just had to get one, didn't I? lol

Timeless (Caardvarks template challenge)

This is the first card of the new year, made with The Stampsmith/From Russia with Love stamp and the fab carved stone leaves that I got for Christmas. These leaves reminded me of the marvellous carved stone vases you can see in the Hermitage in St Petersburg.
