"Cherish Memories"

Foe a change i decided to use white card,
i used to use it all the time a few years ago...
the photo are me darlings which have grown up to 
become the best kids or should i say adults.

The ouas challenge was to us the sketch
and journal about what event changed your life.
having children is just the best experience 
having these little people in your life 
to show the way through their life,
even if  there might be some
 difficulties and lots of joy.

I have written a poem 
on the back of the lo.

 I sit and wonder where time goes
                                                         we try our best to teach them right,
                                                     as times change and our children grow,
                                                           We love them with all our might.
                                                             It's not easy to raise a child
                                                        at times, we don't know what to do
                                                         we weren't given any instructions
                                                              It's a challenge that's all new.
                                                               Our children are our lives
                                                            and our most important goal,
                                                               to love and to guide them
                                                            and to place them in life's role.
                                                              Our children are our future
                                                                  and time will only tell
                                                           the job we've done as parents
                                                               and if we've done it well....

                                                                    For the SATW challenge 
                                                                    I used both the colours 

                                                             The 13@rts i had some aqua mist
                                                                  and also made some handmade
                                                                   flowers,just under the chippie.
