SOUS Challenge

 Good morning! It's Stuck on Us Sketches time again and this week's sketch is from PageMaps. Make sure you stop by so you can see everyone's layouts, they are all fabulous.

Here I am again with grandpa's layouts.... I can't stop thinking of how fragile life is! You only get to live 70, maybe 80 or 90 years and then poof.... you are gone from this earth. It makes me reflect on how important family is and the only thing that remains for the next generation is our love for them. Wow....

Scrapping this picture of my husband and his dad made me cry. When Steve was little he was the one holding onto his father's hand and now is the opposite! My title is "Time" because that word describes perfectly what I was reflecting on.

 I caught another special moment when my daughter was saying goodbye to him. It pays to have a camera with you at ALL TIMES!!!!!

Have a fabulous and blessed weekend!


  1. Such a touching post Bea. It really does make you think. My grandmother is 90 and now I feel I'm scrambling to catch up on all her stories as I had always just blown them off when I was younger. Beautiful layouts too. Love that flower!

  2. Beautiful layouts, Bea!!! The embellies on the first one are amazing and the colors you used on both are just so pretty!!! Hugs!!!

  3. I love your grandparents page and I am so glad you are journaling as its going to be important for your children and now (grandchildren) to read in the future...... Just love love love your work..... Have a great day Beatriz, Hugs,Pat

  4. Oh my god!! This layouts touch my heart!! Since my mom past away I realize how important are the pictures and the journal so my daughter can remember me as I can remember my mom!! I have a few pictures of my mom and me, I was always behind the camera... so now I'm the first in the picture!!
    Great job Beatriz!!

  5. So I wanted to tell you that I spent some time looking at the pages that I have missed (and girl, you are one busy lady because there was a ton of here! LOL!). I love your projects so all the fun that you capture on film, your warm and happy pages!
    I can't even begin to imagine what these albums will mean to your family in the future...
