Malcolm's delivering the milk to this orphaned calf that we raised in 2001! My son had an opportunity to raise a calf who's mother had died, and showed her in the county fair. He won champion of his class, and reserve grand champion of the whole heifer herd that year. I was (still am) so proud of him!
He had to prepare her milk every morning and evening, groom her, teach her to lead with a rope, and learn so many things about his cow. Pretty darn good for an 8 year old, yes? He became her MOO-ME!
I love having Malcolm for this page - he just fits so well! I used SU!s old west paper pack from a few years ago, Bazzill (orange) cardstock, Gina K heavy weight card base (sand color, embossed and colored with Ranger Ink brushed corduroy), and Pebbles white cardstock.
I used my Base Camp cartridge in my Cricut to make the title. Mega Nestabilities curved rectangle was used to cut Malcolm's base, and Malcolm is colored with Prismacolor pencils, Color Box's Smooch (technique below), with Memento inks sponged for the sky (summer sky) and grass (new sprout). Finally, just 6 Robin's Nest dew drops to draw the eye to the journaling.
So - that's Malcolm! Check back this weekend - we'll have another new release from Sunshine's Stamp Creations! Remember, for a limited time you can request your own copy of Malcolm! Be sure to stop by all the Team's blogs for their latest projects!
Thanks for stopping by!
Ta for now, ~ky
