Grandma Love

Ok, folks. I have a good reason for completing falling off the face of the Earth. I got a job and my brain hasn't had room for anything, but the best route to get to and from said work, the long list of responsibilities that come with said work, for all the new names of people I'm meeting, and well, I've been just plain tired.

But, now, I'm back. Hopefully, you've all stuck with me!

Today, I'm sharing my take on the last Sketchy Thursday sketch. I am so bummed that they have decided to close down the site, but I understand how time consuming it must be. I only found them a short time ago, but I've enjoyed their sketches every week (even if I haven't been able to participate right away.)

The page is about my Mom and my niece. My brother snapped these shots when my parents were visiting. He said the light was perfect and they were having so much fun together. He said it reminded him of when he colored with our Grandma. When he told me that, I knew a page was in order. I love making pages like this. This is why I scrap. These amazing stories finding a place out in the world to be shared and enjoyed.

Ten on Tuesday is back tomorrow! Also, this is my 300th post. Not too shabby.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Lovely layout! Love the flags across the top. I know exactly how you feel - I started blogging while on my extended vacation. Had no idea if I'd be able to keep posting as much after I went back to work. Some weeks, no problem. Other weeks, it does not go as planed. But thejob is far more important so the blog can suffer. Hope it's going well!
