Finally feeling like my Self and a Few Challenges


Hi Everyone I hope that you are enjoying your Sunday and spending time with your family.. I have been neglecting my blog for the last 2 weeks now, I have been going thru some really hard and crazy personal family issues. One I can share is that my Uncle passed a way in that same time period. He was the Oldest child for my grandmother. She had a total of 6 children and 5 (including him) have passed away. My Mother is the only remaining "sibling" for her family soo you can imagine how difficult it has been for all of us BUT mostly for my Mom and Grandmother.. Whom is very much well and healthy.. (She will be 85 this April.)
My Hubby and the kids where with them for a week just getting thru this lost together.  So Please just keep my Granny and Mom in your prayers. Thank you :0))))
I came home last Monday, but just was not in the mood to do much crafting. But Yesterday was digi day over at SOG. (you know how big of a fan I am of Kristy and her gorgeous creations. Soo I really wanted to get my 'mojo" back by coloring some of my favorite SOG images. I started last night but just got a chance to finishing them up today. I will also enter her into this week's challenge which is "Think Spring". Love it she looks all spring in her "Orange and Yellow does she not!!!!


Say hi to "Dressy Kaylee" is she just not FAB in her little Spring time outfit. I just LOVE that "Brim Hat" she is wearing it just screams Spring and Summer. I choose the colors according this this Beautiful paper pack from "Cosmo Cricket" "Everafter.. I really fell in Love with this paper pack after I got it home and opened it. I just keep oohing and awing with ever paper I saw. (and let me mention that it was like $3.99 on "clearance at Michael's. You will be seeing a lot more of it trust me.. hehehe.  Kaylee was colored with Prisma and OMS. I used some Prima roses (Reflection brand from Michael's), and some Pearls from Basic Gray. Ribbon is from Wal-Mart. and I used pop dots to make everything pop.

I used this week's sketch from Friday Sketchers
