I feel like a nut

You know the almond joy/mounds commercials "sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don't"? Thats how I feel about flowers.  Sometimes I feel like a flower, most of the time I don't.  Except this time I REALLY felt like a flower, like a whole bunch all at one time ;). 

This layout I made with the August "Growth" kit from Scrapbooking from the Inside Out.  Most of the flowers are handmade, except the big pink one and the chipboard one.  I would say this is definitely the most Prima I have ever used on a page in my life, but I really like it.  I  was in love with colored cardstock and couldn't bring myself to cut it or cover much of it up.  The title is "I hate getting older, but I love being wiser."  Which is the absolute truth, there is no fun in gray hairs and marionette lines.  Can I get a round of applause for my first in focus self pic without looking through the peep hole?  My camera doesn't have the live view option, so I'm going to blame that for it taking so many tries lol.  So what is your favorite thing about getting older?  Mine is knowing when to shut up, which is now.

  4. I love the garden on your page. And YES, self portraits are tough! I think having the perspective is so much nicer as I age. Wisdom is knowing when to be still isn't it!
