I found a cool sketch and knew it was perfect for these papers and wood veneer peach I had in my stash. Here is the sketch:

Friday Night S'Mores

This is another page with pictures that my son's girlfriend sent me of my granddaughters. My 2 sons live next door to each other so the girls spent a lot of time with their Uncle Adam, Eliza and Jude. My grandsons are teenagers and you know how that is....they are either off with their friends or they do not want to be in any pictures. But I am glad to still be getting pictures of the girls. I used this great sketch from Sketch-n-Scrap :

That is about it for now. Thank you for checking out my blog.

Awesome Dude

Both my grandsons had graduations this year that bit the dust due to Covid-19. It was a tough year in so many ways for Cole, the eighth grader but he hung in there and finished the year and now it is on to bigger and better things in high school. I wanted to document the passing into high school with this page for him. I used this sketch from Lasting Memories:

This new Simple Stories Bro & Co is a new favorite collection of mine....I got 2 complete collections as I can see using this a LOT in the next few months.

Well that is it for is back (in August????) and I am excited to binge watch games the rest of the afternoon and evening. Stay safe and stay healthy.
