This weeks Sketch Challenge

We have another great sketch for this week over at Let's Scrap. Cheri has done a fantastic job again! She is just so clever!!! The design team has created some fabulous layouts for this one. So Jump over and check it out! There are some great competitions going as well.

ScrapAwhile Cyber Crop

Well the Cyber Crop is off and running, we had a great night of chatting and games, and some great challenges were set. Hop over to ScrapAwhile and check them out.
Kim has set a fantastic sketch challenge

And here is my take on it. This is of my Great Grandmother, at age 13. Photo taken in Beaudesert. I only just found out that she grew up in Beaudesert! This is using some of the yummy things Krissy has put together, in some of the fabulous kits over at Swirlydoos.

And we have Tarrah's Colour Challenge, to use Brown and Blue, and a touch of white. So in keeping with the theme, i did another layout of my Great Grandmother, and Great Grandfather on their 50th Wedding Anniversary. Once again, i have used some of the fab stuff out of my Swirlydoos kit.

Update on Bailey

Well my darling little man has been into surgery again today. (lost count the number of times over the last few weeks. He first went in a couple of weeks ago and had his bowel fixed up. So he is now "bag free". Yippeeeeeee. long time coming.
sigh, now for the other saga, as some of you know, he has had shunts placed in his little brain to drain fluid away, (due to contracting the meningitis in hospital) he has had them taken out and new ones put in etc etc. BUT today, they were able to place a permanent one (lots of doctor yabba involved here!) they fixed his little hernias, and another little problem. And the Doctors were very happy with everything (and we were very relieved!)
WELL, this afternoon, Sharyn and Daniel received a phone call, she is to go to the hospital on Thursday, and they are to start organizing oxygen etc for his homecoming (NO! No definite date yet!) But it is a start.
So after 6months and 8 days we are actually on the side of, talking about his homecoming! How cool is that!

Will let you know as soon as we have a date!!
Bye for now, One excited Nana!
