TGF Heart Journaling--week 11

Hi!  Yes, I have another post!  I know, it's kind of a lot but I have to post before the deadlines.  It's week 11 for TGF's Heart Journaling.  This week's theme is Bloom & Grow.  I thought of doing flowers but then found this quote online by Robert Browning about growing old together and of course I thought TGF's Grandparents set would be perfect.

Aren't they so super cute?  I want to be a sweet grandma like that.  I also used TGF's My House set for the homes in the background.

I used my kids' colored pencils to color them in.  I kind of like the pencil look and seems easier to shade than with Copics though I'll have to work on the skin tone. 

While I was working on this, it reminded me of my embarrassing moment of the week.  I was at my daughter's friend's house and I saw his parents' wedding picture.  It was dated 1991 and for some strange reason that I still don't really know, I thought my husband and I were married in 1991 also.  So of course I told the mom, oh we were married then too.  So she said wow, 20 years too?  Then I thought really, 20 years?  Hmmm, how come we didn't celebrate that?  So I go home and I ask my hubby, have we been married 20 years?  He's all quiet and then is like we didn't know each other 20 years ago.  Oh because 1991 is when I graduated from high school!  Not got married!  Okay, you can all try to calculate how old I am now.  Of course I had to clarify this to the other mom and so embarrassing that my brain had temporarily stopped working.

Thanks for reading!

Wow, I'm just impressed you have a kid the same age as somebody who's been married 20 years, unless they got married when they were 18... But cute page, you and the hubby in 50 years or so...

Oh, and nice pencil coloring! I think pencils are easier too, although I never colored with markers before.

This is so cute - love that old couple. I've still got to practice with my pencils (keep putting it off, lol). And LOL - sounds like you had a senior moment there - but you're too young for that yet, haha!
