The Change

I have turned into an emotional wreck this past week!! Just look at me and i cry... No reason... all is well... just all teary eyed! Dh and I get laughing about it... I'll cry just out of the blue and then get to giggling at the same time! LOL! Gotta love that final stretch of being preggers! :)

That is what inspired this LO... my oldest DS is growing up into SUCH a fine little man... he has changed to much in the last year it just blows me away! He such a big help...so responsible and helpful..... sniff sniff... I'm just so proud of him!!

The Design of this page is taken from the April sketch from Magistical Memories... I turned it onto it's side and it took on a life of it's own! I was also inspired by the work of Karola... this girl is my scrappy idol... every piece she creates is an amazing work of art!!! incredible! I just love her use of liquid pearls!! :)
I used the chipboard corner bare naked as an embellishment over my title... I could use this particular piece a million times and never grow bored of it!! It's one of my favorite Magistical Memories pieces!!

THE CHANGE
The chipboard frame under my photo was just a plain piece of chipboard. I ran it thru my cuttlebug using the distressed lines cartridge. Then I ran some brown ink along it. After mounting my photo on it, I tore it to make a "somewhat" circle... then inked the edges in black to give it a real aged look... LOVE the result with this page!!

Remember that tomorrow is the last day to be entered in for a Magistical Memories RAK from me... Go here to see!!
