My Baby is Growing Up!

Hi everyone!  I hope you all had a great memorial day weekend!  I know we relish the long weekends, especially if the weather cooperates!

The latest sketch for Twisted Sketches is up and this week's twist holds a special sentiment for me.  This week's twist is "result" and I thought what better photos to use than those of my oldest daughter and her best friend the morning of their elementary school promotion.  Their hard work has paid off and now they are middle schoolers!  It's so bittersweet but we are proud nonetheless.

I decided to use Basic Grey's "Hello Luscious" line.  I love the bold and playful colors and sophisticated patterns.  The journaling was printed onto cream cardstock and pop-dotted to the layout.  I wanted to blend "child" like details with more "grown up" details so I used serious alphas for the first half of the title and fun, glittery letters for "elementary".

Here are a couple more close up shots.

Please head over to Twisted Sketches to see the original sketch and the other amazing pages the other Twisted Sisters created!  I doubt you will leave uninspired.

And don't forget about our 4x4 challenge for the month of May!  Head over to Jess's blog to check out the details and to play along!  There's a prize involved and next month, yours truly will be hosting with another set of products and a new prize!
