Another challenge over at the Critter Sketch Challenge Blog.

Here is my layout, based on a sketch Colleen Spangler  provided for us.  Normally I don't stray far from a sketch, but this one I seemed to wander a little.

My son and his football team from last fall.

Here is Colleen Spangler's fantastic sketch.

Challenge #115 - Flowers

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day.  This was the fifth Mother's Day that I have been a Mom and I have to say, by far it was the best yet.  I was able to sleep in, had a wonderful brunch prepared by my husband and boys.  Then I had a relax time while the boys' finished tidying up and preparing things for dinner.  The boys had a soccer game so we all headed off to enjoy the beautiful sunshine, I think summer may finally be on the way!!  After soccer the boys finished up getting ready for dinner and we had my mom, mother-in-law and aunt over for the most delicious meal!  Thanks for spoiling me today boys!  I loved every single minute of it!

On to this week's challenge over at the Critter Sketch Challenge Blog.  This one - was actually my challenge, a weird one for me - flowers!  Now, you all know that I'm a scrapbooker, and I have boys - so not a whole lot of flowers being used in my creations - but I am not afraid of them!  

I loved these pictures of my mom, my boys and my nephew.  We spent a day at the most incredible sandy beach that is only 20 minutes from home.  It is definitely a hidden jewel and makes me think I am somewhere tropical.
