Sketch Challenge

My two favorite sites to visit and participate.

I am doing this weeks sketch at CroppinParadise from my friend Cheri's blog/sketch site

When I asked Cheri about using a sketch here was her responce "You're welcome to use any of the sketches anytime. I would suggest telling them to link up their layouts with mister linky by July 5th so they can get in on the drawing. It's a really nice gift from Reminisce. But you would have to use one of the June sketches for that...."

Here it is:

Heres my take on it

I hope you love it as much as I do!! I hope you participate at both places for 2 chances to win.

Recent Layouts I created

I am reorganizing my scrap space!! thats always fun. I now have a computor just for photos and my cricut. so I need to make room for that. Here are some of my creations I did.

These photos are from when we took Tyler for his first tatoo. A bulldog in memory of his cousin sam, who also has a bulldog, tyler included a broken chain on his tatoo to symbolize the loss of his cousin.

Photo's taking trees down at our house, talk about monkeys swinging from the branches.

summary of spring.

My Family with my Aunt

I had a new year of experiences in my career, school nurse at a High school of 2100 teens. I absolutely love going to work everyday, this has been a great experience. I did 2 years of school nursing back in the 90's. I am happy to be going back in the fall. Right now I am on summer vacation!

Doug went to Arizona to help my parents pack and drive them back to Minnesota from there winter in AZ. Its nice having them back, I miss them when they are gone, but so happy they are able to do this.

Mom and Dad
Just wanted to share a couple of photos from over the spring. I was able to spend some time with my Nephews and there familys there kids are getting so big.
Braxton 4 and Haidyn 2

Haidyn decided to comb and style Aunties hair so I did hers and she did mine.

Tyler does get to come home sometimes, I miss him. Of course this trip home dad had to fix his car. I will take whatever time I have with him. Working fultime and going to school fulltime. I grab pictures when I can, he hates it.
