On the day of my last post we received a message that my ex-husband, father of my children had died in Uganda while doing missions work.  I spent most of the week on Facebook and telephone notifying people we had known for the last 30 years. What a difficult time.  I was finally able to do a bit of creating to share.

The first is an art journal page.  I had done the background but didn't know what was going on it until I received an email from Kristal Norton at Beginner's Art Journaling that contained this wonderful quote...

I am also going to enter this in the Anything Goes challenge #147 at Word Art Wednesday.

Next I did this layout to begin my photos from my visit last year to Mt Cuba in Delaware.  It is for the challenges at Soul Scrappers UUS8 to use at least 3 different rub-ons (which I have but hate to use!  LOL)  and the sketch challenge at Sketches4all for anything summer.  

The Sketch:

Thank you for stopping by my page.  I hope to have more creations during the week.

Today I am sharing another layout created with a sketch from Stuck?!Sketches.  What a fun site - so glad I discovered it!  And this one combines a color palette challenge from Let's Capture Our Memories.

Here's the sketch:

and here is the color palette:

and here is the layout I created using both!

Thomas was so excited to get into the stream with the fishing boots his Dad had left for him shortly after opening day in April.  He hadn't realized that they needed some patches so that is what is happening in the last photo - emptying the stream out of the boot!  That day we were at White Clay Creek State Park at one of his favorite spots. Watch for another fishing layout coming soon from another fishing hole in the area!

I just saw this on Facebook and thought it was so timely.  I think I am going to make up some of these.

Thanks for stopping by!  All comments greatly appreciated.
