In 5 Years~

This next Studio Calico Birthday Challenge has not only thrown me for a loop, but my hubby as well.

The challenge is to create a layout based on the phrase~ In 5 Years, I/we will…

Now for most this would be simple and just more of your plain, ordinary everyday life.

But in our house five years will mark the time when Ashlyn and Holden turn 18, graduate from high school and are ready to go off to college. Oh my, I’m tearing up already!

This also brings up other thoughts we don’t like to think about…Hartly will just be starting school! Yikes!

My layout~

My photo~

I used a clipping mask for my photo to add some character. Little did I know that it would automatically turn my photo black and white, but I think it works.

A close up of the journaling and embellishment clusters~

And while I had Photoshop open I used it for my journaling.

I wish you could have seen Travis’s face as he looked at my layout! It was priceless.

It’s the same look I get when I think about repeating Fourth grade Math! Sigh!!
