@ twenty

i took the lead for this week's challenge at journaling junkie. this is week #58 and i do hope you can join in our challenge.

this is a layout i created for my brother, paulo, our youngest sibling, when he turned 20. i journaled about the significance of him reaching that age.

this is the challenge:
They say age is but a number. They're probably right. But behind that number is a meaning, a realization of what that age brings to that person's life.

Create a layout using "age" as a title. Journal about the significance of that age for you or that person you are scrapping about. What realizations do you have as you contemplate on that particular age.

Can you believe it? Twenty years has passed since you first came into our life. You were such a tiny baby that we never thought you'll grow up to be this big. You're already a man and old enough to make decisions of your own. We hope that we have nurtured you enough to be the best that you can be. We are your family and know that we only want the best for you. There is more to experience with life. Reach for your dreams and always persevere. Life is what you make it and we know that you deserve the best.
materials used: lace cardstock - ki memories; patterned paper - scenic route, prima, fancy pants; chipboard - rusty pickle, basic grey; alpha sticker - making memories; acrylic paint - making memories; glitter glaze - lil davis
