my time

This is a layout I threw together in an afternoon for the SOE/SOD autobiography page layout contest! Whew that was a mouthful! I love the Avenues paper line from Bo Bunny it's one of my favs.
My title says it all! At 50 years old I am now an empty nester, have been for a few years now and I have learned to love it! I adore my children but it is so nice to live life by my schedule. I get to see my beautiful grandchildren when I want and when I've had enough I get to hand them back! Love this! I can stay up late and sleep in. No defined meal times wow I could go on for awhile. Bottom line I am enjoying the me time. Now it's time to start working on my bucket list. First off a trip across Canada on a Harley this summer! Looking forward to new adventures. :)
Pretty Prima flowers and resin. Love these colors!
The last shot showing some stenciling I did with moulding paste and the funky ribbon I had in one of my kits. Well the sun is out for the first time in nine days and my yard beckons me! I'm off to bask in the sunshine and develop calluses from raking :( Always a downside. All the best! :)


  1. Gorgeous page and I so love your sentiment! I would never have said you were look so great! Super that you will start working on your bucket list, a trip to Canada on a Harley sounds super! Do you ride yourself? I am a biker too, though not many people know it...and it's such an awesome way to travel!!! ;-) Love the Avenues papers here and your soft touches to the page...a reall goodie! ;-)

    1. Thanks Denise! No I don't ride myself my husband is the driver. He has three motorcycles although I think we'll sell the Victory this summer. Looking forward to seeing the rest of our country although I worry as I have steel in my back but a planned ride should be okay! Oh the pictures I hope to take! Scrap away!
