Growing Up.....

As beautiful as my daughter has grown to be, it is sad for me to see her growing up so fast.  She had a graduation dance at her middle school last month, and she will now be going to the High School in the Fall.  Time is flying by as my kids are growing right before my eyes into pre-adults.  How is it that time seems to move faster as you are watching your children grow? 

I am sharing with you today a sketch of what my daughter looked like the day of the dance.  Her hair turned out so beautifully, but you cannot see that in the sketch.  I was hoping for this card to turn out a little bit differently, and I was going to start all over again, but my husband really liked it alot, so I am keeping it, BUT I think I am going to try this again with a new idea.  Still wanted to share with you, since if my husband liked it, I thought maybe some of you might like it too.  I do love the look of a sketch, but I need to master how to work that into a card better next time.   Actually, I made this into a stand, so that it can be displayed rather than as a card.  So....there you have it. 

I used some prima roses and adhesive embellishments that can be found at the McMahon Five Designs Store
I entered this into the Stamp Something Challenge to create something vintage with flowers...and
The Corrosive Challenge..Use lots of flowers

Thanks for having a look, and I appreciate all that take the time to comment and share your thoughts with me.  Many blessings to you.

Have a wonderful day!
