Stampin Royalty Challenge # 35

Kids are growing too fast. I enjoy being friends with them as they grow older, but I missed them dearly when they were still little. I have been so blessed to have a wonderful DH and three amazing kids. I came up with this project by painting a wood frame and using Stampin'Up designer series paper to make a memory scrapbooking page frame...if that make sense to you. I can't beleive that summer is almost over and really want to enjoy every moment of it while it lasts.
Enjoy the lovely day!
