12 Candles - Artful Delight & TPV

My son turned 12 last month. Twelve!? I just can't believe he's now less than a year away from being a teenager. Not only because I can't help but still think of him as my baby, but also, I don't feel old enough (and am not ready) to be the mom of a teenager! lol But, such is life I suppose.. and I cherish every day :)
I made this layout using the last bits of my Artful Delight July kit :) I LOVED this kit, definitely my fave thus far of all AD kits I've had the privilege of creating with .. I'm sad to see it gone lol

I also made this for the new challenge at The Paper Variety. It's our favorite, tic tac toe! Choose 3 in a row- down, across or diagonally. So many options! :) I chose the last row - journaling strips, buttons and one photo layout.

If you join this challenge and enter your project, you could be the randomly chosen winner of a $20 gift certificate from Freehand Scraps! Sweeeeet prize! :)
Hope to see your project at The Paper Variety!

Have a great day!
