Long Weekend Ahead!

I've been counting the hours till today at 4pm!! The start of a nice, long weekend. I wish I could say that I will be scrapping non-stop all weekend, however tomorrow I have a doctors appointment and have the finish up some Easter shopping, and then of course Easter is on Sunday which means I will be spending a good amount of time in the kitchen, and enjoying the company of John and the kids. Now that they are older, the excitement of Easter morning isn't there but I still make them baskets and everyone looks forward to a yummy Spiral Sliced Ham with all the trimmings.

After getting dinner done and the kitchen cleaned up I was able to get a little scrapping in. I used the Tuesday sketch at Frosted Designs for this layout featuring a photo of my now 14 year old when he was much younger! I looked at the picture and the title of the page is what popped into my head. I wish they would stay young forever. And it just so happened that the new "Word" at Bird Is The Word is FOREVER. I used Crate Paper Brook papers and chipboard elements, as well as letters from October Afternoon and American Crafts Remarks.
