I Miss My Baby

This is my first time to join Once Upon A Sketch. I've been hearing a lot about the site but my life has been turned upside down and haven't been scrapbooking the last few months LOL, this is the second time I joined a challenge for the year.

On a scrapbooking note : do you see the "yellow-green" roses on the layout? I'm happy with the outcome. I have leftover white roses and I used my glimmer mists to color them. Love the outcome!

I found this picture of Dawter T among my stash. And suddenly, I miss my little girl. It is as if our move from Singapore to Melbourne also made her grow up fast. She has more responsibilities now. She doesn't have an Ate A to call when she wants something. She has been a source of strength for me. She's the one I talk to about serious stuffs coz I don't talk to a lot of ladies nowadays hehehe In fairness, she's old for a 9 year old. And her shoe size --- same as mine!!!

Journal :


You grow up too fast.

You don't ask for help that much anymore.

You tie your hair by yourself.

You choose your own clothes

or return the ones I choose for you.

I miss my baby.

Where has the time gone?

Note :

Thank you to Webster's Pages for featuring this layout! Can't stop smiling!

So happy you chose OUAS for this challenge. I know how hectic life can be and that sometimes there is not much time to scrap.
I love your page very much. It is such a beautiful take on the sketch and I think your colours are just gorgeous.
Yeah, baby is 11 now and I LOVED having my girls little. But now that they are bigger I find that each period has its charm and that this is good too.
Thanks for sharing your beautiful work with us at OUAS. Good luck and I hope you ewill come back for the next one :-)
