I Love this Boy...

My oldest is a second grader.  A second grader!  I'm still in denial.  I tell him to stop growing up all the time and he just replies with, "Mom, you know that's impossible."

I decided that since this page was about my love for him, it could be a bit on the girly side.  The butterflies represent how he's growing and changing on a daily basis, and how fleeting my time is with him. 

The flowers are my absolute favorite set in the shop right now - The Flower Power Bouquet.  I love the golden yellow with the kelly green and fuchsia.  I really liked the effect of trimming off the fuchsia flower to be flush with the edge of my page.

My layout is based on this new Sketchy Thursdays sketch:

I loved looking through all of last week's entries and hope you'll play along with this one.  Have a fantastic Thursday!  Tessa


  1. SO lovely, I agree THEY do grow up fast! :)

  2. Tessa, this is a beautiful page. Your flowers are stunning. I guess with having 3 boys, you don't get to go 'girly' as often as you may wish. Handsome young man you got there : )

  3. Love this page Tessa. The title is fab and so are the paper strips under the pics.
