Oh My......

I am so sorry for the long lapse in blog postings.  So much has been going on in our lives, something had to go for a while.  Between the CTMH convention, football, the new school year, a new dog, and many other events we have been busy, busy, busy! 

The good news is I do have plenty of pages to share with you over the next few days.  Yee Haw!

This one was inspired by the October sketch over on the once upon a sketch blog. You know me always up for a challenge!

A lot of layering and dimension went into this one.  There is a pullout under the picture to hide some personal journaling.  The picture is of my mom before I came along during a rough time in her life.  I thought the title was very fitting.
