Paper Stories "Cherish"

Hi Lovelies!!! Hope you are having a lovely start to your week!!!So this month i decided to have a play with the sketch over at Paper Stories. I unfortunately did not get a chance to play with their first ever sketch but made some time to this month :)

My page was created after i was stopped by a lady in the shopping centre the other day. I was shopping along and my daughters were being their usual selves, flittering around and playing, when a lady said " I miss that!" She went on to tell me to appreciate them while they are little because they will turn into teenagers one day. I had too laugh. I hope i will always have a special bond with my girls even when they are teenagers. But it did get me thinking how much they are growing up : (

Here is my page, which i had lots of fun with layering, painting and misting. I also had an experiment with the Tim Holtz Distress Marker and a stencil, which is the numbers and i just added water!!!




And here is the sketch which inspired my page.


 
 
So yeah a blog a day so far :) TFL!!! I appreciate you taking the time to comment. Until next time Happy Scrapping!!!

Well believe it or not, I will tell you the same things.. My oldest is 27!!! have no idea where the time has gone, but I too sometimes sit and dream of when the 4 kids were all still at home.. (2 have left home - 2 still at home).. so yes they do grow up tooo fast... this layout looks amazing, love the tags, and love the red flowers, and such cute photos too... and love the arty look of the paint and mists!! Have a great week!!
