U R My Sonshine

I finally decided to join in the fun over at Pinoy Scrapbookers’ blog.

The challenge for this month is to:
1)    Create a LO about a love one
2)    Choose a song associated with your love
3)    Use song title or a phrase from the song you chose
4)    Journaling should be the entire song or part of the song that is meaningful to you
5)    Use stitches… hand or machine made

Here is my take…

u-r-my-sonshine
This LO is inspired by the song “You Are My Sunshine”. I just played with the title a little bit and changed it to “U R My Sonshine”. There is one verse in the song that really conveys how I feel about my one and only son. I’m sure most of you are familiar with this song.

journaling
Journaling:

-You brighten my day with just a smile.
– You fill my heart with love and joy.
– You mean the world to me.
– You are my everything.
I wouldn’t ask for anything more coz’ I have you, my perfect little “SONSHINE”!

love,
Mommy

When I see the world through your young eyes, everything becomes new again.
The moon is brighter, the sun warmer, and the stars even more mysterious.
Yet nothing is as glorious as YOU. ~~~ Maya Angelou ~~~

This is the song lyric that I incorporated in my LO:

You are my sunshine, My only sunshine.
You make me happy when skies are grey.
You’ll never know, dear, How much I love you.
Please don’t take my sunshine away.

Materials Used:

K & Company Mira Golden Swirl Die-Cut Paper, DCWV Cardstock, MY Mind’s Eye, Magnolia Collection Paper, Computer Fonts, Buttons, Diamond Glaze, Colorbox Ink Pad, Tombow and Zots adhesives
