Hi Everyone.  I am home again after a sad journey home.  I don't really know what to say or write, but I do know that I want to say thank you for all the wonderful and supportive comments left on my blog while I was away.  The best thing for me now though, is to get straight back into what I love doing.  And that's making special memories with my family and documenting them as we go.

I know my Dad enjoyed looking at the photos and stories shared here on my blog... and he especially loved the times where he was featured!  LOL!!  Like in this "gem" created for Storyboard Kits...

[Lil' Mate]

I'll miss you Dad.


I have a little bit of housekeeping and some layouts to share.  Firstly, this is my take on Sketchabilities #51

This is also my first layout as a design team member over there.  I can't wait to see what everyone creates!!!

Also, Get Picky has a fun sketch to play with!

[Game On]

The DT even got to play with some fabulous Purple Pumpkin goodies!  Sam is sponsoring the prize this month and trust me!  You really need to be in it to win this prize!  Yum!!

Thanks again everyone, for staying with me.  :)  I can't wait to get back in and play with scissors, paper and glue!

Awesome work Kim. Love each of the LOs and your takes on the sketches are fab.
And I am sure that creating many pages about your Dad will help you and will certainly hold onto all of those memories.
