Now it's time for the  

October 2018 Song Inspiration/Word or Phrase Challenge:

ADD MONTHLY BOX

The song for October is:

 "You're Gonna Miss This by Trace Adkins"

She was staring out the window of that SUV
Complaining, saying "I can't wait to turn eighteen"
She said "I'll make my own money, and I'll make my own rules"
Momma put the car in park out there in front of the school
She kissed her head and said "I was just like you"
You're gonna miss this
You're gonna want this back
You're gonna wish these days hadn't gone by so fast
These are some good times
So take a good look around
You may not know it now
But you're gonna miss this
Before she knows it she's a brand new bride
In her one-bedroom apartment, and her daddy stops by
He tells her "It's a nice place"
She says "It'll do for now"
Starts talking about babies and buying a house
Daddy shakes his head and says "Baby, just slow down"
You're gonna miss this
You're gonna want this back
I You're gonna wish these days hadn't gone by so fasth
These are some good times
So take a good look around
You may not know it now
But you're gonna miss this
Five years later there's a plumber workin' on the water heater
Dog's barkin', phone's ringin'
One kid's cryin', one kid's screamin'
She keeps apologizin'
He says "They don't bother me
I've got two babies of my own
One's thirty six, one's twenty three
Huh, it's hard to believe, but
You're gonna miss this
You're gonna want this back
You're gonna wish these days hadn't gone by so fast
These are some good times
So take a good look around
You may not know it now
But you're gonna miss this
You're gonna' miss this
Yeah
You're gonna' miss this

Here's my layout:



I was inspired by the title of this song. It made me feel sentimental after seeing the photos and knowing that I will miss this in the future when they no longer want to participate in Halloween activities. I used the words from the song title as the title on my layout. And I participated in Rochelle's Paper/Sketch challenge and used her sketch inspiration and some plaid paper to make my layout.

Here's the RAK I'm giving out:
