Dream, enjoy

Hi everybody! It's a wet Friday here in Puerto Rico, it's hurricane season so that means we get  a ton of rain in summer!  This month's prompt at OUAS is so dear to me.  My first child is off to College, there's an empty room in my house that I have to face everyday.  A constant reminder that he is away...I miss him so much.  I made a pocket out of his photograph an in tucked an envelope with my good wishes for him.  You know a mother has to give wings and let them fly, doesn't mean I worry any less.
I hope he's studying and learning and making new friends and good decisions of his own.

 He looks so grown up with that beard, I wish I had my baby back...
the absolutely beautiful stencil on my background is the new Mini Alhambra by Rebekah Meier for
The Crafters Workshop
 I used the cartographer collection for this , it was so manly man, LOL

I hope you enjoyed my sideways interpretation of the sketch!
