you had my heart... 38

 Hi there! I hope you are having a great weekend! Scott and I made the road trip to the Los Angeles area to help move Connor into his college dorm room this weekend:
while in the area, we visited THE Rose Bowl Stadium:
and THE Prima Outlet Warehouse Store: 
I brought some of my crafting supplies on our trip and didn't touch them until tonight. I made an art journal page:
 I created the background using a variety of acrylic paints along with a Gelli plate:
 and various stencils including the Fishnet and the Petal Circles:
For theme inspiration, I joined along with the Mixed Media Place Summer Music challenge Vol. 2 where we are challenged to create a project inspired by Adele's song ~ Rolling in the Deep. My tag features lyrics from her song ~ "you had my heart":
 For color inspiration, I joined along with the current ColourQ challenge:
Thanks so much for visiting!
Be Sweet ;)

Your journal page is fabulous Mona... of course, I love the splashes of pink!! Lovely photo of Connor... it's a difficult trip to make when you leave your son/daughter somewhere... but know it's their way forward in life. Still always was a bit tearful for me! LOL! But then WOWWW ... bet that Prima outlet store made you feel a little better!

Hugs
