If I Wait Until...

There are no clouds in Michigan I'll never get a layout posted! It's dark, rainy, and cloudy here. Had to take pics of my Sketchy Thursdays entry anyway, had to have it posted by tonight. My cropping is a little off too. I used the beautiful floral line "Sweet Nectar" from K&Co.,  Anna Griffin diecut. Now that I look at the layout from a distance I can see it is weighted too much to the top and left. Still love the effect :)

Here is the sketch: Here is my take on it:

I was driving through town on my way home from work the other night, thinking about how long I've lived in my town. Realizing I'm actually 45 years old. 45.45. Forty Five! I don't feel 45, is this a cruel joke? I feel young on the inside and look old on the outside. Grrr.  I'm officially middle aged. I refuse to go down easy! So if you see this old lady bustin' a move in the yard or singing at the top of her lungs, remember " I don't feel 45!".

As long as you feel young, that's all that matters!! :) I'm pretty sure our faces would be wrinkle free much longer, if it wasn't for kids...but the fun times outweigh the stressful. Your lo is fabulous!!

I really love this layout!! Its so soft and girly!! I need to correct you - 45 is NOT middle aged!! I have a few years on you - and I am still waiting to feel like a grown up!! I LOOK old, just don't feel it!!

I can completely relate. In my mind I am in my 20's. I will be joining you in two months!

Love this soft feminine layout! So pretty! I guess I better start planning my "I don't feel 45" layout. I'll be there this fall! I totally understand what you're saying---I don't feel my age either!
