Smiles are the Soul's Kisses


I have been wanting to do a layout with this photo ever since I got it back from the printers.  This morning, I saw this fantastic sketch over at Write Click Scrapbook. It is a Page Maps sketch from Becky Fleck.  I was also inspired by The Paper Variety's photo challenge and added the XO for Scrapfit's Workout #62 XOXO challenge. 

We have been busy with new house activities as well as keeping the house clean in the hopes of a sale of our current house. We don't have to close until July so we have a little time, and we are just crossing our fingers that everything works out just right!  Our move kind of signifies a new start for our family. Our son will be entering college next year, and Steve and I will be transitioning into "empty nesters." Mitch is so busy now that sometimes we already feel like "empty nesters," but college kind of makes it official!!

Anyway, thanks for visiting!!! Please leave a comment if you have a chance, and I will try to get around to your blog soon!!!

  4. Hi Kelly,

    Great layout and it works so well with the inspiration of the movie cover. I really like the "kiss" moment in the photo as well.

    I've been an empty nester for a couple years now, but with three grandkids and two more on the really never feels empty.

    Happy blogging,
