I scrapped!

I went to a scrapbook store yesterday and found this yummy paper made by Making Memories.  Isn't it delicious!  I had to have it, a layout came to me right there and then...don't you love it when that happens. The sentiment is a single stamp from Unity Stamps...if you like to stamp on your layouts, these stamps are for you because they are huge!  Anyhow, I distressed it a ton, and turned it into a tag, by adding twine to it.  The felt ribbon is from the Cosmo Cricket set I got from QVC a while back.  I think the buttons might be from MM too...but not sure.  I didn't have any flourishes that flowed with this page, so I doodled some myself with a black micron pen, added dots and then colored it in with a Copic marker.
This picture was taken in Pensacola Beach, FL.  It was a such a fun day, my inlaws were visiting for my husbands winging & we just hung out on the beach and had an impromptu photo shoot.  I love being a Mom, is just so bittersweet watching your kids grow up...anyone else feel that way?  I hope you all are having a great day!

First off, I just love the Making Memories Noteworthy papers! I have some, but I haven't used them yet. Next, the photo is great, and it's just perfect on this page! I love your doodling! Last, yes, I feel like that all the time about my girls. I see them everyday growing, exploring, being more independent, and while I love to see them discover all of these things, I'm sad because they are finding their own way! It's definitely a strange feeling . . . exciting yet sad at the same time! Anyway, awesome page Latisha! Just wonderful!
