Hi there! I hope you are having a great weekend! Scott and I are away on vacation at our home away from home in San Diego, CA. I frantically packed a craft travel bag / suitcase full of supplies to play with during the evenings when we are both too tired to do anything else. I knew I wanted to join along with Prima's May Build-A-Page sketch challenge, so I packed lots of Prima goodies.
I made a layout featuring a couple of photos of Meredith and Connor that were taken more than 10 years ago. They weren't even in school yet and now Connor is graduation from high school in 2 weeks and Meredith will be a Senior next year! YIKES! Time sure flies!
To create the background, I started with a pretty piece of patterned paper from the Prima Princess collection, added lots of texture and paints then embellished with a variety of Prima flowers:
 resin embellishments including the butterflies and key:
 typo bulbs along with rub-ons from my stash:
 For color inspiration I joined along with the current ColourQ challenge:
Thank you for visiting - I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!
Be Sweet ;)

The layout is gorgeous, but more than that this evoked lots of emotions in me, Mona! My Connor is 17, he'll be graduating next year, and my daughter Ali just became a "teen" this year, and the time is flying by way too quickly! The way that I console myself is to look forward to the big milestones they'll be achieving in the near future, and dream about my (hopefully) some day grandbabies lol! But I can't seem to look at pictures of them from when they were younger without tearing up.
