Bittersweet days...

Why is it that for every great thing in life there are always some of those tear jerking moments to go along with it....our grandbaby got to go back home today where he belongs....tears of joy that he gets to go home with his moma and daddy, but tears of sadness because I wont see his smiling face every morning and get that bear hug that goes with it....sigh....Oh, well, pawpaw said we could go see him in a day or two...lol

SO now it is just me and hubby and the three kids left...man is it quiet here...lol
I have been scrapping like mad over the weekend so I will share my pages and a freebie if I can dig one up...

First I was CT for Mermaid Designs and Digital Ink at Plain Digital Wrapper last month...here are a few more layouts I made using their gorgeous goodies:
I made this of Anthony's Grannie's 90th Birthday party using "Come to Me Kit" by Mermaid Designs.
Here it is:

Then there was Amanda's Senior Prom...you are gonna love this dress...

I used the Rustic Recreation Bundle for these pages of her...
