Change Can Be Bittersweet Layout by Kay

Good morning fellow scrappers!  Kay here with my take on Marilyn's challenge for November "Change is Beautiful".  Yes change can indeed be a beautiful thing--but in some instances it can also be bittersweet.  I interpreted this challenge to portray my feelings of seeing my son grow this past year.  I feel like this year flew by in a blink & I'm still trying to grasp the fact that one year ago I had this little 7 lbs bundle in my arms & now I have a 20 lbs toddler in the making.

It's bittersweet for me--I'm so happy to see him grow yet sad to see that with every passing day he's less and less of a baby & growing into a little man with a big personality.

All papers used is from our sponsor 7 dots.  I used papers mostly from their 'Love is in the Air' collection but I also took bits and pieces from 'The Queen's Heart' collection.
Here's the inspiration board for November.
I took a then and now photo of my son to show how much he's physically changed this past year.  He was barely a month and 1/2 when this photo was taken.
Here he is at 12 months.  As you can see from this photo...I'm clinging onto these precious moments for dear life!
I've used a lovely tag made by Marivic to embellish my page.  The 'sweet' elements used on the tag coordinated with my 'bittersweet' theme.
I took inspiration for my design from a Page Drafts sketch.  Now onto this months prizes...

From that moment, I became totally amazed and thrilled by all the beautiful papers and decorations in the art of scrapbooking. After some time as a captivated scrapper, I got curious to create my own patterns. I have always had a devotion for color and form. I had access to great printing facility, as I worked at a printers office. Since 2007, I have been blessed to be able to work with my great passion - to design and create colored coordinated paper."
