It seems ages and ages since I was on my machine just for myself..must be well over 3 weeks! What with Christmas. New Year and our Grandsons 18th..been one busy lady...Daughter came for Christmas went home, then came again last week for the party...Trying very hard now to get back to what I call my normal!
So It's a looooong post today. 

This stamp is called Bearly Full of Truffles! Coloured  in just a grey pencil with pops of yellow! Embossed it three times with a clear embossing powder, popped it into the fridge, scrunched it up, then distress over it with tea dye.. Papers from stash..The sentiment came with a digi I bought from..From The Heart Digital Stamps 
There's an optional sketch over at House-Mouse and friends this week pop over and take a peek!

This is a photo taken nearly 18 years ago! Our eldest Grandson had just come home for the very first time...He was  born 12 weeks early in January and they kept him in until April...Which was 12 weeks! We went to hospital ever day when I'd finished work to peek at him in his incubator. I even had to make tiny jumpers  for him when he came home as  new born were to large!

This is Josh now!
Taken on Saturday at his Birthday party..Over 6 ft tall and in his last year at College.
 University calls in September!
Makes me very sentimental just thinking about it!

Thank you sooo much for calling...
