My "baby" turned 21...

I managed to get outside and pull a ton of weeds, clean up more branches from our downed tree, sweep up the deck and the backyard and finished up some laundry. I'm entitled to a break, right??

Here is my interpretation of a sketch challenge from Lasting Memories. This was a sketch with a twist....we were to add buttons to our page. I used a few as the centers of my flowers. :)

I LOVE this trim that I found at Michael's! Sooo pretty! And this color came along at just the right time. It matches my daughter's blouse perfectly! I cannot believe she is 21 years old! She is an adult now and I just cannot grasp the whole concept of that....exciting and sad at the same time....

I raided the flower drawer and threw in some Prima blingy swirls. These colors are so gorgeous! I had to stock up on those....sshhh....

For a title, I just decided to use her initial. It's a chipboard alpha I inked up. I wanted to add some bling to it, but nothing seemed to look right, so I thought it best to leave it alone.

Between the trim and the bling, I am so happy with how this turned out...I hope she is too! :)
