Diddle Diddle Dumpling

I've recently added Echo Park to my list of favorite paper companies. Their full collection packs come with such an amazing array of stickers, letter stickers, borders, journaling spots, etc. And then there's the paper. The viewmaster reel pattern has to be my favorite from the Note To Self set. So cool! I cut two of them from the sheet and used them to ground a couple of embellishment clusters on the following page:


When I found my son sound asleep on the stairs, one sock off and one sock on, I immediately thought of the nursery rhyme, Diddle Diddle Dumpling. In the rhyme, he "went to bed with his stockings on, one shoe off and one shoe on. Of course what happened here is a bit of a variation of the original child's poem, but I thought it would be a cute title for my page.

This was something I wanted to remember in a fun way. Diddle Diddle Dumpling!
