A new Sketch at LET'S SCRAP

Morning all.

It has been a terrible week for us here within the Sharp family. My MIL passed away very suddenly on Monday morning after a massive stroke on Sunday evening. We are all in complete shock!!! My heart goes out to my hubby Ray, his sister Debbie and my FIL Glen who are all devastated. We are just going to have to take it day by day!

It is also my oldest son Caide's 12th birthday today!! Happy Birthday my special boy, I am so proud of the young man you are becoming, and I love you more than you will ever know!!! xxx

So this is going to be a quick post that I am doing before everyone wakes up!!

The latest sketch is up at Let's Scrap, here it is:


And here is my page. I thought I took more photos of my layout, but I didn't!!


The ingredients I used on my page are:

P.P, Chipboard Embellies, Red letters & Brads - Life of the Party range by Basic Grey
Scrolls - Baby trim stickers by Basic Grey
Orange Letters - Thickers by AC
Border Punch - Fiskars
Burnt Orange Dazzles by Enmarc (a South African company)

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today.

Remember - Live each day to the max as it may be your last! Fix those things in relationships that may not be as they should be, and don't judge people, we are all different, and different for a reason.

Rene' so sorry for your loss. I know I don't know you aside from blogger, but my heart goes out to you. But on the upside your page is delightful! I love that you always make a 2 pager a one pager, and never force the second. I need to learn to do that! I am a one pager girl! <3 hugs <3
