I realise now more so than ever before that having a child not only means a lot of joy and happiness but it also presents itself with the importance of thinking about what kind of advice you would pass on to your children. 

Amongst so many possiblilites the one thing I truly want for Tig-let is that he never lay idle...that he experience life to its fullest, I know thats a cliche but I still stand by it as one of my top 5 pearls of wisdom. Dare to dream, be true to yourself, dont procrastinate & simply make your aspirations come true. 

This layout is about just that it is also about wanting Tige to see the world to experience people and their countries and make some amazing memories to cherish something I wish I had done! ahhh I hear you say but it is never too late, and yep so true my time will come when I am a Super Annuate, ba ha ha! The colour inspo came from TCR and this weeks palette #74.

I used a bit of Basic Grey and the little clocks are glass pebbles created by Handmade Halo, go check the store out. Thought I might add that the clouds are inked using a handcut stencil I created sometime ago.
I also thought I might sub it for this weeks word challenge 'Memory' (which I used in the journalling and as extra accents on the page) at Bird is a Word Challenge site, go check them out they are currently looking for new DT members and sketch artist which I'd love to apply for, one of my pet loves is designing sketches but I just dont have enough time with my other DT commitments..

Okay better go, little Tig-let is whinging and crying poor poppet needs a sleep. Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a great Sunday and a wonderful week!
