happy 28

Hi there! I hope you are having a great weekend! Today is my dear son's 27th birthday! Here's a photo of a photo of Jerry when he was not even a year old: 
 and here's a photo of him and I on his wedding day :) Where does the time go??? sigh...
Today I'm sharing a layout featuring a photo of my sweet girl Gretchen and I :)
For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the Prima February's Build A Page sketch challenge:


I started with a piece of paper from the Princess collection then added lots of texture and design using Prima Modeling Paste along with the Prima Flower stencil:
Once the modeling paste was dry, I colored the flowers using various ColourArte Silk Glazes: Pink Azalea, Pink Grapefruit, Ginger Peach and Carmen:

Once I had the background completed, I embellished with lots of Prima flowers, Prima die cut foliage and a doily:
as well as a Prima resin clock:
 For color inspiration, I joined along with the current ColourQ color challenge:
Many thanks for stopping by ~ I hope you have an amazing day!
Be Sweet ;)

Very artistic. Love that splashy, free-form look. Great pic of you and your son! I agree where does the time go? My first-born turns 30 in July and I can hardly wrap my brain around that fact, lol.

Mona, your photos are wonderful, and yes, where DOES the time go! Your son - both baby and groom (Happy Birthday, Jerry) - are fabulous! While I'm certainly old enough to be a grandmother (whew...that I'm not), I don't have children (just my husband and I), but I am Aunty C to my sweet niece and nephew. I can't believe how quickly they're growing up: they'll be 5 and 3 in March! Gahhh! Your photo of you and Grechen...oh my goodness! She's adorable; you're beautiful! Lots of love infused in these pictures, and your layouts...staggeringly stunning! I'm hopeless and pathetic with mixed media, which means that when I see it done superbly well, as you have here, I'm in complete awe! Wow! Thank you for visiting my VERY clean, simple cards and finding little nuggets of delight in them! You're a gem!
