May "MAY I?" Challenge by Melania

Guest Design Team Member Melany submitted this layout for the May "MAY I?" Challenge. She said:

For the monthly challenge I was brave and used a work made by a wonderful italian scrapper.

Of course i am not so good as her and my Lo is not a scraplift of hers

The story behind the Lo inspired me so much. It’s Itterino’s story, a little yellow pelouche not so loved in the beginning but then, become very special :)

I have a deep love for my cuddle soft toys friends :) and i wanted to tell the story of Pingu, a very special Penguin from New York city.

“Hi, I am Pingu, I was adopted by Melany from Museum of Natural History in N.Y. When we came to Italy, she kept me in arms at the Kennedy airport and a policewoman asked her “Who is he?” and Melany told “He’s Pingu” and they didn’t touch me :)

Some year ago a new friend arrived, Charlie, coming from Salem, we are both American. The other cuddle toys accepted me and Melany loves me, she takes a lot of pics of me and she even created a facebook group “The Pingu’s friends”

Bye Bye. “ Pingu :)

This is my friend's work, her name is Federica, Kushi, for the scrap world.

And this is my post on my blog :)
