Growing - You Make Me Smile

Hello, Crafty Peeps!
This week is Anything Goes Week at The Outlawz Greetings Challenge.  
One of our sponsors this month is I Brake For Stamps and I have used one of their images for this project.  IBS has over 3,000 digital images, including an exclusive line of Rick St. Dennis Images .

I chose this adorable image for it's versatility.  It will be easy to place a chair or step stool image beneath the image a build an entire scene.  The idea here was to address growth.  
I have been marveling, lately, at how quickly my grandchildren have grown.  My youngest GRAND will be one year old next month.  Seems only yesterday I received the call from my happy, groggy, and slightly disoriented son! 

I don't know why this photographs as green, it is actually the same shade as the dp on the front, but my flowers and leaves photographed weird, too!
