~Sweet Water Babies~

Happy Saturday!!!! This is going to be a super quick post as we have more celebrating to do:)  Our son, Zachary, graduated from high school last night, and we are having a few of his friends over this afternoon to continue last night's festivities. My husband and I still cannot believe our BABY boy is now all grown up!!! Where does the time go?!?! I still remember bringing him home from the hospital over 18 years ago as if it happened yesterday...not to mention his first day of kindergarten. You should have seen us boohooing as he walked across the stage, but shhhhhhh...don't let my DH know I shared that with you;)

Today's card features the ADORABLE stamp "Water Babies" form the recently released "Natural Beauty Collection" by the super talented Carmen Medlin for SCACD Stamp Co.  I absolutely adore this precious image!!! Just look at the darling faces on both the sweet mermaid and the cuddly sea lion!!! Who could resist such sweetness? Not me!! I tell ya...I could just reach in and hug those cuties:) Couldn't you?

Well, I am going to head on outta here!! I hope your weekend is filled with happiness and smiles!!! Thank you bunches for dropping by!!!

Blessings & Hugs!!!

Ok, my sweet Caroline! I'll try again to get my comment to stick because I really want you to know how much I love this card!! You know I am crazy about how you use layers and this is no exception. Thanks for helping with my Blogger comment problem. One issue does seem to be with the embedded comment format--like this one :-(

Big hugs!
