Sailor Child In Vintage Style!

Hello there me Hearties!! LOL  Another Mo make from me this week using one of the beautiful children out of the "Sailor Boys" set in Mo Digital Pencil. I love this set because of it's vintage feel, and it brings to mind images of little kids playing in there sailor suits down at the beach with there tin soldiers while there mums in there 1950s bathing suits watch on preparing a picnic for everyone to eat... it's just Gorgeous!! and of course, I owned a little Sailor suit just like this for my son when he was born. I have only one picture of him wearing it, as he sits on Santa's lap.. Screaming his lungs out at the scary man in the grey beard!.. oh the memories. LOL... 

Well back to my card :) I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it... oh.. and check out his hair!!! I'm very proud of it.. LOL.. I know I know.. I bragging about hair..
