Been a long weekend - sorry to be posting to late for Saturday's challenge. Here's my card for Unscripted Sketches this week. I really am not sure where I got this digital - it was recently but for the life of me I can't remember - papers are Echo Park.

Then here's my card for this week over at Designed 2 Delight - the challenge is to use a Designed 2 Delight image with buttons. Papers are My Mind's Eye.
Then I have some pictures to share of the family from the funeral. My ex-Father-in-Law died last week (my two older girl's grandfather). He was very special to them. We were so disappointed in the funeral. The focus of the entire funeral was on second wife - girl's were hardly mentioned and their father who died five years ago wasn't even mentioned as part of his family. Very distressful to find out the secret life he held while they lived in awe of their grandfather. And after having held inheritance over their head their whole lives he left everything to wife #2. Not that they expected it or wanted it - they just wanted to know that they were important to him as his only granddaughters. Here are a few pictures from the wedding. I have alway remained very close to all these people even though I was divorced from the family when the girls were small. I even talked to their grandfather on his birthday in June. We were able to bring everyone together to my house on Friday so had a great visit.

These are my three girls together.

These are all the grand childred (mine) plus little Lynlee who was in heaven all weekend with all the kids to play with.
And these are Kim and her kids - all growing up way too fast for me!

Thanks for stopping by.
