Happy Birthday Baby!

Today, my youngest child turned 18. I feel so melancholy! I'm so excited for her, but it's really hard when they grow up. I know that life isn't over, but it sure seems that way, doesn't it? As Reba McIntyre once sang, "Is there life out there?" If your children have flown the coop, can you give me some ideas of what I can expect? How do we go from being a mom who is constantly running to piano lessons and soccer practice to a mom whose children have their own lives? Happy Birthday Allison!

I haven't made this into a card yet, but wanted to show you my pears. I really thought they came out pretty. Once I colored the pears, I stamped the image on a post-it, cut it out and then masked off the pears to prevent them from getting ink on my newly colored image. I then used my Memento Inks to sponge around my image. I hope you like it! Let me know and I'll show you how it looks when I finish my card.
