**News** 2Sketches4You




Time again for another great sketch from 2 Sketches 4 You!!! I know you are going to LOVE this sketch from Kazan. I sure did! The sponsor this week is Clear and Simple Stamps...you are going to want to check them out...cute stuff. I went with a "news" theme this week, since we have so much news to share in our family right now. Amanda is getting ready to go off to Paraguay...FBI clearance done...shots done...temple ordinances received...passport ready...wardrobe getting there; Ty is off to college now...I wasn't sure I was going to get through that...tears were shed (or should I say sobs...on my part, not his), but he is settled and happy and meeting friends. I knew he would do well...it's just hard to let go when you know it will never quite be the same again. Alena has started ninth grade...supplies bought...classes changed...friends established...Amanda's former wardrobe adopted. She looked so good on the first day of school it should have been illegal...I wasn't sure I was going to let her go...lol. As for me...I managed to delete my cards file in my photo editing software...ugh! I'm a firm believer in everything working out for the best, though...so I think I'll get even better pictures of them than originally...it will take me some extra time, but it's all good! Thanks so much for all your well wishes and kind words and sharing our family news. Big Hugs...Cheryl

  7. I love the colors you picked for this card! Can't believe Ty's at college-so weird! I saw some freshman here at USU registering at their dorms and I had flashes of Ty doing the same thing and was sad I didn't get to see him off. Wish I could have been there with everyone, but we can't wait to see yall again!

  15. Hi Cheryl, I popped by after you left kind comments on my blog. I haven't visited you before and what a treat I have been having. This card especially, what a fantastic eye you have for colour and texture. Your card is wonderfully dramatic. it is lovely to hear about life in other cultures too. I wish you and your family well.
    Thanks for sharing.
