Sketches! {by tamara}

We have a Recipe Challenge this week  at Sketches! {by tamara}.
And the Recipe comes from ME, one of the Design Team Members here at Sketches! {by tamara}.

Use at least these three items on a card or layout:

Banner or Pennant
Green
Bling

I used the "lovely" Cosmo Cricket paper line "Delovely"!  I just love playing with banners also!

As for life at home here...it's been pretty busy. Justin leaves for college in 1 week!
OMG....we are so torn over him leaving! We will miss him sooooo much but I know this is an amazing time in his life and I am so proud of him! 
We have been non-stop dorm-room shopping, spent a day in Chicago at Navy pier and Sunday we are having professional  family portraits taken....it's been about 10 yrs since our last portraits! We are going to use an old weathered red barn as our backdrop....can't wait!

Navy Pier, Chicago....................................





Thanks for checkin out all my "Bolognie"!

Ok, so... first thing, I think the little date sticker at the bottom is like the BEST invention ever. Since I never date anything and then look at photos and vaguely remember when it happened (which is awful considering some of the photos are pretty important... like my wedding day, ha!)

Secondly, there is a silver lining, I mean a whole day of shopping? That's pretty awesome. Plus, we both know that despite the charms of college, he's going to be homesick as soon as the novelty wears off. With a mama like you, how couldn't he be?!

great layout- and pictures of you and your boys!!

You'll miss him, but listening to all the fun he's having will be wonderful!! And.... when you are really sad missing him, just think of the pooper, and you'll get so aggravated, it'll pass. hehe
