The First SBS Sketch Challenge


I made this card for our first sketch challenge with The Sisterhood Of the Blogging Stampers #26.
This past Saturday we went to a birthday party 3 hours away! It was 8 o'clock when they decided to open the birthday presents, but we had to go. Our ride turn in to a 5 hour ride home because the highway close to our home closed and they had to direct traffic of the closest ramp. There was a bad accident that they were still investigating. We were stuck there for about an hour and a half. Poor Adela had peed so much in her diaper she was uncomfortable and cried alot near the end. I was so tempted to take her out of her seat and change her diaper in the slow moving car. But I didn't, just to dangerous. You never know what could happen. So she cried herself to sleep. I felt so bad.

We should have gotten home about 11:30. We didn't get home until 1:00 am! Unfortunately a lady had died from that accident. I felt bad for being frustrated.

On an upnote, Lindsey and Michaela came home tonight after spending about three weeks with their Grandparents up at their cottage. It is louder in the house, but it is good to have them home. I think Michaela actually grew physically and mentally! She just seemed older. I was a tad sad. She was gone for just three weeks!! She seems like she is a year older!! Stop Growing!!

That's awesome! You're really talented. It's sad about that poor woman and the accident. It's scary on the road some times. Glad to hear that your house is lively and happy with the kids back.

Very cute Vickie! I didn't hear about that accident, but there was another bad one over by you today I think. That stinks about the drive, I thought at first you were going to blame construction cause there is a lot over there right now.

You're right about kids growing too fast!
