Paper~Bugaboo's Stella Says Sketch - Challenge 139



You are my "Son"shine

Finally participating in a challenge again and it feels goooooood! This is my take on the above sketch from Bugaboo. The cute image is from Bugaboo of course! I colored it with Prismacolors and Gamasol. The clouds are a Fiskars punch, the paper and ribbon from my poor neglected stash! The sentiment was computer generated and the song I use to love to sing my oldest son when he was a baby!

Snapshots~St. George Island

An Unexpected Vacation

This is one of the many things that have kept me away this Summer/year!
A much welcomed trip for unwelcomed reasons! I have a beautiful, young and wonderful aunt that was diagnosed with terminal cancer a few months ago and this is what she we made it happen! We had always talked about going on a family vacation to the beach, but always just put it off to "next year". Well we don't have next year now so within 2 weeks we planned a beach vacation for 10 people. It was short of a miracle that we found a house to our families needs..but we did and it was amazing! We had a wonderful trip and I will always be grateful that I was able to go!
