Too Old Too Soon

Here's a Halloween LO I made a while back.

Luis is turning 8 on Thursday and this photo was from last year's Halloween festivities, when he was 7.

The small photos on the film strips are pics of the various costumes he has worn over his 1st 7 years of life. These are actually only a few of them because my kids really enjoy playing dress-up.

Title: Too Old Too Soon

Journaling: Since when was being 7 years old too old for anything?

Barely 2 weeks after your 7th birthday, you decided that you were too old to wear a Halloween costume – but not too old to go Trick or Treat! This black Batman shirt was the closest thing to a costume that you would wear. You didn’t even want to carry a pumpkin basket.

How could time go by so fast? You were the poster child for costumes. You had so many costumes, that they were your everyday play clothes. You even planned for Halloween months in advance.

I was teary-eyed as I looked through these photos of you in costumes from the last 7 years, realizing that soon, you probably wouldn’t even let me take your photo. Luis, Halloween 2007

Materials: Basic Grey patterned papers and alphabet stickers, Bazzill cardstock, American Crfats Thickers, Heidi Swapp Chipboard clock, Queen & Co square brad and photo anchors; Creative Imaginations brads and stickers, 7 Gypsies gaffer tape, EK Success fastener, Grafix transparency, Font: Estrangelo Edessa (Microsoft)

Luckily, this year he has gone back into costume mode (thanks to The Clone Wars movie) and plans to be Bobba Fett or a Clone Trooper! Maybe, he can still be my baby for a little bit longer:)

Love this LO, Ria. Great how you fit so many photos in one LO. Pa-scraplift ha? Also, may I ask what you used for the negative strips? Thanks. The journaling is something I can relate to, too. Love everything about this.
