Welcome!  This week I have been given the honor of being asked to be a Guest Designer for Send A Smile 4 Kids  This week their theme is From a Kid.
This Challenge Blog is very special because their mission is to put the smile on the faces of Hospitalized children in the Midwest area of the nation. This cause is nearnto my heart since my own son was hospitalized a few times when he was a baby and i know first hand how unpleasant it is to spend time in the Hospital with your own sick.. The guidlines are very simple, if you would like to send a smile to these precious children and their families please check out their blog or click on the following link:

I was sent the following darling  image from MilkCoffe  to create with;

Isn't he adorable?  He reminds me of my son when he was just a wee one, clunking around the house in his Daddy's shoes, that was a long time ago as my son is now 17!
