Sketch N Scrap - #69

Here is a second post for today - on a roll here before i set to taking pictures of 
of layouts i have accomplished since may...

i wondered over to Sketch n Scrap and completed the sketch
i always like the sketches they have
here is the link :

here is the sketch 

here's what i made
this past september i turned 40
i dont feel 40 
i dont look 40 
and sweetie i rarely act 40!
its just a number 

i got really lucky with this sketch -
the bunting was on my cupcake display
i removed the posts - and tada -i was half way there

i have also taken to candy buffet / bars this year 
i seam to be making them for everyone's birthday

we had a bonfire in our backyard and invited on;y close friends
it was a reggae theme - since scott & i had our first 
real vacation together in montego bay jamaica a couple
years ago - we listen to reggae & love the relaxed layed back
feel of the island
my husband is referred to as the whitest jamaican 
by our jamaican friends 

I'm BACK !!

Well after a very cool short sprint, summer & fall
I have finally sat myself down to create.

Just to give you a recap of why I haven't been around here is 
I quick recap with layouts and pictures to follow - 

we got our trailer out late and camped when we could 
before school let out
we stayed with family in upsala - visited friends at wolf river ( twice)
and spend the month of Aug in beardmore

taylor attended most of her summer gymnastic training
and spent times with friends
and relaxed before starting her competitive training again 
this past september
she is looking forward to a competition in 
minneapolis this dec & 
returning to the arizona grad invitational in jan

garett trained with a trainer all summer & 
has started to take is nutrition and health more serious
he decided against trying out for higher level hockey teams 
away from home - i am so happy to have him here
he was called to join a jr b team after draft & 
they decided to affiliate instead 
so he is enjoying a year of aa & playing up when ever he can

alex was so much fun all summer 
he enjoys boat rides - tubing - climbing and playing in the clay
he is always doing something and is simply the funniest 
most pleasant little boy!
has started playing hockey this fall
he plays at out local arena in a rec league 3 nights a week
he loves it and is starting to understand the finer points
it looks a bit like herd hockey - but he is so determined
he with have the love and passion for the game like big brother

if our house wasnt busy enough - 
2 weeks into september we decided to have another 
16 year old boy live with us
he was living in kelowna bc with his father and 
grandmother after his mothers death 2 years ago
i have moved my craft room / office into the corner of the 
rec room where the bar was going to go 
so i have a hard time being creative with no sanctuary to run to 
and always feel like i have more to now
it had been a challenging adjustment for all 5 members of our family
and we have had some prayer requests
i am hoping things settle in soon 

well that is where i have been ! 
i am sure there is more but i would like to share the details 
with you as i post some of the pages i have completed

i got this one done tonight
it was a challenge from 
the above is a link to the challenge

here is the sketch:

i pretty much just followed it - 
i may do this for a bit till i get my mojo flowing..... lol 

here is what i did 

this was taken last march break in toronto
we went down for a mini vacation to watch garett
play in the ohl cup
not often we get a date night - or a trip away .

hope to see you all soon 
be crafty
