I did this page for Once Upon a Sketch...

The journaling prompt was "a lesson learnt".  While I've been working on tons of vacation photos, I realized that our time as a family is going oh so quickly.  My oldest is venturing out on her own and finds some of our trips boring..lol.  Having them spread out so far does make it a little tricky when planning trips.  So reflecting on our time together and how much longer we will all be traveling together actually brought tears to my eyes!  
Well, that's pretty much what the journaling card says behind the photo.  It's hard to get every thought down on paper....

Have a great day!!


  1. Ah yes :) a wonderful and sometimes challenging time for parents watching our kids get ready to fly the coop is not always easy. They come back :D Love the fussy cut flowers and the pop of the watermelon colour is lovely. Thanks for playing along with us at OUAS this month.

  2. I remember just that time with my boys...it's that 'letting go' thing, isn't it & the end of an era....great lesson! And a lovely page - the hexagons in the bg & that pop of orange works perfectly - thanks for submitting this to us at OUAS & don't forget, if you haven't already done so, you can link it to our Once Upon A…Sketch Facebook Page for another chance to win a prize!!!
