I've been missing from blogland for a couple of weeks and my regular sketch post has had to go on hiatus and this is the reason why.....Sadly, we lost my wonderful mother-in-law this month after a short, but intense battle with lymphoma. I just wanted to share this amazing woman with you.
She was a Spanish fisherwoman who some 50+ years ago came here to the UK to build a better life. She worked for many years as a psychiatric nurse and met the young handsome Norman to whom she has been married 51years.
An amazing cook and great storyteller, we are all better people for having known her and will miss her every day.
Another Sunday dose of inspiration and today's sketch is a simple one, but sometimes that's the best way. Use some busy patterns to create interest and add your journaling on different style tags to complete the page, but hey that's just my take on it.
So, here we have it, sketch number 145.
Movies watch this week:-
Battleship - fun alien invasion effects movie...Pick of the week.
Split - psychological thriller with a Sci-fi twist
Cell - very disappointing Stephen King adaptation
A Million Ways to Die in the West - hysterical juvenile comedy western
I've been catching up with some Project Life app layouts this week. The first documents our lovely friend Cabhan's ninth birthday. I say friend because he made a point of telling his school mate he couldn't talk because his grown up friends had come round to see him......I think it's lovely that he thinks of us that way.
The second layout shows the projects so far from my new Trimcraft Design Team kit. I'm loving being on the team and I would encourage everyone in need of a creativity and stash boost to try out for one, it's challenging, but such good fun.
