Pixie Dust Paperie May sketch Challenge

Hi there ...
I hope you are well ... 
I haven't been ignoring you ... I've been having a little trouble with my computer today for some reason ... plus I've been busy trying to get things done for Thursday club tonight ...  
However, I have a LO which I did following Kirsty's sketch at Pixie Dust Paperie


This is a photo of my son when he was about 7 years old ... seems like only yesterday to me ... where does the time go?


How I adore that boy of mine ... just looking at this photo takes me back and my heart still swells with love ...
Of course as I always make a point of saying ... scrapbooking is still an ongoing learning process to me ... so it's wonderful to have a sketch to follow 

And a little peek at something we will be putting together tonight ...


A cork board hanger for a pad of sticky notes and a coaster 
I have punched over 200 butterflies ... cut out 25 circles from sticky back cork ... 25 paper circles
25 square cork boards .. 25 pieces of cardboard to stick the cork too .. and sorted an array of bits and pieces for them to decorate with ... not to mention gathering 25 CD' for them to make the coasters with ... now I need to find some animals for Andrew ... Ribbon for Nicki's hair, crackly acetate for Michelle ... and so on ... 
Have a lovely evening ...

~ Ros ~

What a terrific layout! Gorgeous papers and I adore the Adore. My what a handsome guy there... yeah the years seem to fly by. When I was young I only wanted to have girls. The Lord blessed us with two. Two boys followed and they were such a joy to me and still are that I can't believe I ever said I didn't want a boy.
Great work, Ros!

Hi sweetie,
Wouldn't it be easier if there would be a craft store available for you and your club? You are carrying a lot of supplies around. Reading this I get a view of a shop on wheels :).
You are always preparing everything perfect and I am impressed. You really are one of the most thoughtful people I know. I know that the people of your club love you; and they should :)
I love these projects; did everything work out well that evening?
XXXXX
