Last week it was announced that Sketchy Thursdays (my favorite sketch/challenge blog) was shutting down. They posted their last sketch and I just HAD to use it and enter. The above page was made following this sketch:
I used Authentique papers and embellishments that my friend Abby gifted me. The picture is of my cousin Joanne and I a couple of weeks ago. Joanne lives in New Jersey and we had not seen each other in 40 years! She and her hubby own a vacation place about 2 hours south of us and were in town over the holidays so my dad and I met up with them for lunch. It was so nice catching up with her and having our picture taken was a must!
Reconnecting with Joanne meant so much to me....she was one of my favorite cousins growing up and cousins are usually your first best friends. I am entering this layout in Scrapfit's Workout #60... It's The Simple Things. It really is the simple things like reconnecting with a long lost family member that really make life sweet.
