Sketchy Thursdays - 6.9 Challenge and I'm baaack

Wow! It has been almost 2 months since I've posted. In fact, I have hardly looked at blogs in those 2 months :( Life has been kind of insane: my grandfather was hospitalized in mid-March after a terrible bleed-out and passed away a month later. He fought hard but just could not come back He was released home under the care of hospice and died the next day. We had services for him 2 weeks later and, no sooner were we settling in back at home then my father was diagnosed with esophageal cancer. It's just been 3 weeks since his diagnosis and he is 3 days into radiation and chemo treatments. Crazy, huh?  Anyway, with all the chaos of end of school, my job, my kids, and all the family stuff, I have not scrapbooked much lately. But, I finally had a girls' SB retreat this past weekend and a night at Archiver's (the week before). This is based on the ST sketch from this past Thursday. It uses Bazzil Bling CS, Heidi Grace Harvest Row (old but I love it), Thichers, Dress It Up buttons, and a couple other random embellies of unknown origin :P.  Please pardon the flash - it is storming out and my time has been limited- nothing like the last minute huh?
