First up...Sassy Lil Sketches

First off I just want to say how much I miss all my blog friends!! The second half of this Summer has just not been on my side. Between kids activities, ongoing health issues with my mom, busy times at work, my blog has been the easiest thing to forget for a while. I do think about my friends here often though....and here is a special shout out to Debbie, Barb, Wendy, Denise, Brenda and most favorite bloggers! I have been doing some scrapping though!! So the next couple of posts I hope to catch you all up on what I've been doing. I know many of you are praying for my mom and I ask for your continued prayers. She is still hospitalized and is doing well DESPITE the ridiculous care being given at the hospital. Long story short is her IV came out sometime during the night on Saturday and she nearly bled to death because no nurses entered her room for HOURS. She had to have 2 units of blood transfused....she lost THAT much. And nobody seems to care that she could have died. Its disgusting the way they treat the elderly. And their only excuse is that they were busy that night! WTF!!! Anyway, continued prayers would be appreciated. I don't want to be a downer here on the blog so I will move on to happier things like scrapping!!

The above layout is based on a sketch over at Sassy Lil Sketches this week. I used Sassafrass Lass papers and letters. I love the photo. Its Susie and Matt with their cousin BJ giving the thumbs up at a Water Dancing Show at the mall. This is the first challenge I've completed in a while but look out....there's more to come next post!!

Oh Susan! What an ordeal for you and your mother to go through! I am glad to hear an update on your mom and will continue to keep her in my prayers. Have you tried filing a complaint with the hospital? Gosh, that should just never happen.

Now on to your layout - gorgeous! I love the use of the sketch. I am not a "tilter" so I am always in awe of people that can angle their pictures and have the layout look so stinkin' good! Thanks for playing at SLS!!


I'm so sorry to hear about your mom! Things like that should just not happen!!

I'm sorry to hear that happened to your mom! I'll definitely keep her (and you) in my prayers! I love your layout! It's gorgeous! Thanks for using the sketch & sharing with us at Sassy!


Oh Honey, I'm so so sorry. Just brings tears to my eyes. What atrocious care and behavior! She's in my prayers to get better and get out of the hospital soon.

I'm glad you are scrapping. I hope it has helped keep you a little busy and distracted. Your layout is beautiful.


Super fab LO!
