* Happy 14th Birthday to my Adam * :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Hi all....

Yep.. 14 years ago today... my baby Adam was born... *sigh* where have the years gone??!!??!!  He is now sporting a mustache and is TALLER than me!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Wanted to share a layout I made today talking about my feelings about him growing up... I made this for the latest challenge over at "The Studio"...and our challenge this time is to use FRAMES on your layout!!  :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)


Used lots of YUMMY Crate papers on here!  :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)



The journaling reads: "When did it happen? When did you grow up on me? I blinked and you are now 14! Wow! I am proud to be your Mom and I will love you forever! To me, you will forever be my baby. It seems like it was just...yesterday"  :):):):):):):)

And I wanted to share some of my FAVE photos of Adam!! *sigh* I loveeeeeee this boy!  :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
