Memories...OUAS July 44

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, June 30, 2013 @ 3:20 PM | , , ,

Hi there! It's time for a new sketch to play with at Once Upon A Sketch. This month, we ask you to focus on the Journalling Theme: "Grow". Refer to the photo shown below for inspiration.
Here's the fun sketch we will be playing with:
I scrapped a layout featuring a photo of my two girls: Angie (on the left) and Meredith (on the right) that was taken 10 years ago. Needless to say, they both have really grown and have blossomed into beautiful young women. My journaling is quite lengthy and is written on the back of the page.
I heat embossed various chipboard pieces including the little butterfly and hearts from Imaginarium Designs.
and added lots of pretty manufactured flowers that I have been hoarding. 
Here are recent photos of the girls ~ how time flies! 
Angie (23 years old)
Meredith (16 years old)
Thanks so much for visiting ~ I hope you liked my layout. Please be sure to visit the Once Upon A Sketch site to see what the participating DT members have created.
Be Sweet ;)
