Once Upon A...Sketch July Challenge: CIRCLE OF LIFE

The July Challenge at Once Upon A...Sketch is to use a sketch and accompany the photo with some journalling.  Here is the sketch:

And here is my layout:

The photo is my beautiful daughter in her ninth month of pregnancy.  She is just blooming with health and life, don't you agree?  Here is a close-up of the journalling:

This is her first baby.  I am as excited about this upcoming birth as I was about the birth of my own first child - who is now the lovely young mother-to-be in this photo.
Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day!
