Saturday and Unscripted Sketches

 Happy Saturday - well we were going to be down at the coast this weekend but ended up helping my son move his things out of his apartment and back home.  Going to have to find some new roommates if he's going to move out again.  Hoping that we can just convince him to move to Lake Granbury when we sell the house.  We are enjoying some unseasonably beautiful weather here -  in the low 70s but I LOVE it!  Been out walking/running and am sore but it feels so good to get out again.

Today I have my card for Unscripted Sketches to share with you.  If you are here for the CSI blog hop scroll down a post!

Thanks for stopping by.

Unscripted Sketches and CSI

Happy Saturday - worked yesterday so posting early.  Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.  Today I have a card for Unscripted Sketches and a layout for CSI for you

This week at CSI we were challenge to "lift" either a layout or an item of a layout from the very first Case File.  I lifted Annette's layout here - totally NOT my colors but love how it came out.  This is my little granddaughter, Makenna, such a doll.

Thanks for stopping by!

 WOW it's Saturday again!  Hope you are having a great day.  Not home - in Granbury celebrating my hubby's brother's 70th birthday (dang they are getting old!).  Going to see my step daughter and hubby for one night and then off to the party then come back Sunday so I can get back to work again on Monday.  Been a busy week - short at work so I volunteered to work tomorrow - will probably hate myself for it - lol.  Had a really busy assignment Sun/Mon but it was the kind of trauma assignment every trauma ICU nurse signs up for and I loved it.  Always so much to learn and teach - make me appreciate my job!

 Here's my card for Unscripted Sketches this week.


Then for CSI  this week here's our Case File.  These are some pictures of my granddaughter, Madison who I'm so proud of - she's a first seat drummer and is awesome at it!                                      


Thanks for looking!

Saturday with CSI

Well it was a sad day for us yesterday - had to put down one of our cats, Emily.  She was almost 14 years old - had gotten scratched on her nose about a month ago and just had a non-healing sore.  Took her in got antibiotic shot and started to get better.  Then went downhill again - took her back in right after Christmas and it appeared she had an abscess.  So when they went in today to do the surgery (I'm now talking we are already out almost $350 - the surgery to be another $500), I told them if it was anything beyond an abscess (like cancer/tumor) they were to just put her down - never wake her back up.  You can guess it - they found no abscess just a large osteo tumor so we had them put her to sleep.  Never easy she's been with us so long.
On to more pleasant things - here's my card for Unscripted Sketches this week.

Then over at CSI this week here's our new Case File and how I solved it.  These are my beautiful granddaughters, Makenna and Madison.

Thanks for stopping by!
