Catching up

I thought I had better get my bum in gear and post the last 4 Scrap with us challenges as I keep getting moaned at by Paige!!! I had done them on time but just hadn't got round to posting on my blog.
Wk 22 Days gone by
This is a photo of my son taken last week at his leavers prom. I must confess to having a bit of a weep when he'd gone as he looked so grown up in his tux and he's leaving his lovely middle school to go to High school in September. This LO is just saying how I don't know where the time has gone, I turned my back for a minute and hes all grown up!
PP is October afternoon and prima, chipboard is Rusty pickle and tickets are Tim Holtz.
Wk 21 Home is where the 'soul' is
I went to Glastonbury a few weeks ago with friends for a 'spiritual' weekend! I had such a good time, so relaxing, no husband or kids to worry about! The Chalice well is one of my Fav places there, you can feel the energy of the place as soon as walk in, and the healing pool is soo cold but great for chilling your hot feet after all the shopping!
PP is Cosmo Cricker garden variety, Maya Rd chipboard and an October afternoon journal card.
Wk 20 Cream of the crop
I wasn't going to post this one at all as It didn't turn out very well. The photo is from the Wight craft circles February retreat. PP is We R Memory Keepers Tiffanys range.

Wk 19 Hands of time
Photo of our Fathers day lanterns. PP is Scenic route and Autumn leaves.

WCC Crop 10.7.10
I did this LO at our monthly crop, another Glastonbury one, this time of the Abbey. Such a beautiful place, all in ruins now but still spectacular. It is the supposedly the burial place of King Arthur and Queen Guinevere. Their grave was found there in 1191 by the monks. In 1278 their bones were reinterred in a black marble tomb in the presence of King Edward 1st. When the Abbey was torn down during the reformation the tomb disappeared and has never been found.
PP is October afternoon and Jillibean soup.
Thanks for looking

These are beautiful - I can really empathise with the one of your son. He's the same age as Devon and when I see people (men & boys) stop and stare I want to punch their lights out, I have to physically restrain Craig sometimes *g* She doesn't look as young as she is and I often wonder who stole my baby away and replaced her with this young woman.

Beautiful LOs Sam. I love the 'Hands of Time' one. I love the colour combinations you have used too. I'm falling seriously behind with the challenges. I must sit down and have a crafting session and catch up. Sxxx
