Autumn Splendor

This super cute kit is now shipping from Color Me Daisy! All the little extras this month really send this kit over the top. I LOVE the tiny Maya Road chipboard houses and the transparencies are amazing! Here is one of the LOs that I've done so far.

Kessa's growing up so quickly...sometimes it catches me off guard. I'll be watching her and all of a sudden I'll see a glimpse of the woman that she is turning into. This picture made me catch my breathe. It was visible proof that she wasn't my baby anymore.

No more chubby cheeks, no more baby curls...just that slender neck and tiny wisps of hair that whispered to me that my baby was growing up.

But I'm choosing to not cry that my baby is growing up. I'm choosing to be excited about the times to come...about watching who God is growing her into...about the new things she's learning. I'm going to be thankful for the time we had and savor the time to come!

What is it about little girls' necks with their hair all pulled up that makes them seem so grown up? I always feel that way when I see Em with her hair pulled up too.

Such a sweet layout and sentiments!

This page turned out so cute. I really like how you layered the title over the folded paper.

What a great web log. I spend hours on the net reading blogs, about tons of various subjects. I have to first of all give praise to whoever created your theme and second of all to you for writing what i can only describe as an fabulous article. I honestly believe there is a skill to writing articles that only very few posses and honestly you got it. The combining of demonstrative and upper-class content is by all odds super rare with the astronomic amount of blogs on the cyberspace.
