Well lots has been happening!



My mum decided on Wednesday that she wanted to come and visit ......on Thursday!  It was such a lovely surprise and the kids were soooo happy to see her.  She looked so well, better than I had expected.  We didn't do much which suited her fine (she has a little trouble getting around). so all my scrapping time was gone.....so nothing really to show other than..

The Pink Elephant is doing a sketch challenge this week and I am NOT a fan of sketches!  I never know how close to actually follow the sketch!  I can be quite literal and if I see an embellishement in a spot then Ihave to follow! lol  NOT the case with Lori's sketch! nice and broad so it leaves lots to the imagination!
here is this weeks' sketch.

I really love this photo of Lachlan & Patrick.  They have such a special relationship and a really good friends as well as brothers.  I have pretty much been faithful to the sketch!

Thanks to Fern for her lovely blog award!
