Beach Bum

Howdy blogging friends!
Wow, is it Monday already?? Where is the time flying to these days???
I cannot seem to keep up!

Today I have a layout I made for The Crafty Scrapper to go the Great American 
Scrapbook Convention that will be here in North Texas soon.
I have used the sketch challenge over
at Once Upon A Sketch for my design.
My papers are Creative Imagination - Love them! The colors are so wonderful. This picture
is of my DD2 the day I picked her up after her freshman year at Texas A&M. 
She was all tanned from spending a year on Galveston Island!

Here is the fabulous sketch I used
I have rotated the sketch 90 degrees to the left to suit my photo.
The journal prompt was the theme "Mother" and I have journaled about how hard it is for
a mom to let go when her children are grown! That was so hard to let her
go off to college, even though I knew she was ready. 
I tucked my journal card behind the layers of paper so it would be out of site,
I used a Ranger Manilla Tag and some netting from a fruit bag.

Thanks for stopping by today!
