Crop LOs

I cropped yesterday at A Maze of Memories while Pat did the class. I thought about doing the class but it was a summer LO using photos of this summer. At the moment I'd rather forget this summer and didn't have any photos.
I really appreciated the chance to get away and  enjoy three hours peace and quiet.
The first is an old photo that was passed on to me by my SIL. DH had never seen it before - hence the lack of journalling - all we know is who is in the photo (I've written that at the bottom of the page).  Bazzill cardstock, all patterned papers and embellies by DCWV "The Linen Closet" (in a handy kit!),ribbon from John Lewis - thanks Pat!
The second is photos of the view from the hotel patio where SIL had her 60th birthday lunch. All papers are Club Scrap "Nature", flowers are Prima or from stash ( again thanks Pat for the dark green fabric flower with pearls!),ribbon from stash and ribbon brad by docrafts, alphas by DCWV and Doodlebug. The sketch is by Tiare Smith from Scrap'nFit.

Today I am not feeling happy or talkative. I am,in fact, very upset. It's all to do with Dad being in hospital and how he's reacting. I won't go into details but my world has well and truly been rocked and not in a good way.

I can well understand that you're feeling so upset and out of sorts with your dad being in hospital. I am glad however that you decided to go cropping and have a few hours to yourself with some lovely results.

Fingers crossed that yor dad is well enough to get home after the Bank Holiday.

No apologies needed ever for feeling out of sorts. It happens to us all for one reason or another. It's all relative.

Wonderful layout Susie. Great take on the sketch.

Oh Susie, I'm so sorry you're feeling sad about your Dad. I'm sending you love down the broadband fibre optics (you know I might understand just a little bit cos of what I went through with my Dad, and you were very supportive to me). Well done for signing up to Collage Coterie - when you are able to give it some time you'll LOVE IT, I know you will. Make sure you sign up to the Flickr group as well, that's one of the best bits for me, getting the support and reactions from the rest of the group - they're all lovely, nothing negative is ever said. Take care my friend, xx

Hi Sue

I'm really sad to see that you were sad when you wrote this post, I do hope that you have some better news now and are feeling better about things in general and your Dad in particular.

Love both your layouts, and I hope that that little bit of "you time" did you some good.

Hugs and sparkles to you and your Dad
