remember when you were this old?

-the li'l davis chipboard-

-tiny matt & mia tags-

I made this lo this morning for Tricia's challenge at Citrus Tree Studio. Her challenge was to create a lo about love without using the color red. I {love} this photo of my son, Matthew and his girlfriend, Mia. They've only been dating for a few months, but it feels like love to me. ;) They are so darn sweet together! Matt's a great guy...he deserves a sweet girl. And, yes, of course I'm saying that because I'm the mother. LOL!!

Anyway, I've had this "love" chip piece for forever and a day. I got it from Mary Frances, at SBO and I think it's by li'l Davis. For this lo, I traced it onto some 7 Gypsies pp. Was really wishing I had some glimmer mist...thought it would be cool to try to mist the love piece, but made due with some black stickles.

The rest of the pp used in this kit, came from the August 09 Citrus Tree kit, still on sale. The g*c*d studios green floral print pp ranks up there as one of my all time faves. :)

I hope my friends Marti and Julie Ann come check out this lo!! They've known Matt for a few years now.

I now have some m&ms to eat...so with that, I'll catch ya later.
