Our Little Tween

Hi friends! Thank you for all the congrats about my exciting news earlier! You guys totally rock. ;) I've been creating today and wanted to share my layout with you...






Supplies: Basic Grey What's Up Paper - Up And Away, First Flight, In Flight, Balloon Festival, Blue Skies; Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Walnut Stain; AC/Dear Lizzy Neapolitan Roller Date Stamp; Fiskars Circle Punches - Large, Medium; Martha Stewart Large Circle Cutter; Basic Grey Chipboard Alphas; Jillibean Soup Corrugated Flower; Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher; CK Cindy Computer Font

I am SO in love with this page, especially for the journaling. The first line says "The first time I saw this picture, it gave me a little shock." That is so true! It was the first time I saw Emily in a picture and realized how much she's changed lately. It's really crazy how fast these babies grow up isn't it?? Anyway, I journaled about a few things I remember from when she was younger and also about how I feel now that she's a "tween". When she got home from school and read the journaling, she really loved it, so mission accomplished! She loved the play on words in the title too, lol. :)

Thanks for stopping by! I've got some other projects in the works but you can't see them yet since they are DT assignments, yay! Keep an eye out and they'll be posted before you know it. ;) Have a great weekend and for all those mommies out there, Happy Mother's Day!!!

I really love this page. I have a pre-tween that thinks she's a tween. LOL I know what you mean about the fact that they grow up entirely too fast!
