Hi Everyone!

It's almost the weekend! WOW!

Are you ready for a new sketch? I sure am. Here you go... it's one with space for 2 pictures, embellished with scallops and linear elements in addition to a few florals or flourishes. Room for journaling, as always... we can't forget the journaling!! Hope you like it!

(Note from Maggi: I had to work this one for awhile but this is my most favorite LO ever I think. The sketch inspired me!!)
 Here's the journaling...Thanks Maggi!
 “I was only 18 when that photo was taken. Here it is, 40 years later, and I wonder, where did time go? The older I get, the quicker time passes. I think if I could have one wish, it would be to slow time down so that I could better appreciate each day...”

Journaling reads: "Grace, Kate’s 7-year old Hanoverian-Thoroughbred mare, did really well at her first show at the Greenwood Horse & Riding Centre (GRHC) in June 2010.  It was a “Training Show” and  was busy and well-attended by both entrants and spectators. Grandma was there to watch the show as Kate and Grace competed in several flat classes. Grace didn’t “place” but she was sooo calm and happy to be there. She waited over an hour and a half for her first class and was as easy-going as could be. Kate was so proud of her! Way to go, Grace!"
