I always LOVE a great Challenge!

I did this LO last night for Lesli's Blog Sketch Challenge...trying to get my mind off all the packing and blowing snow coming my way LOL.

Photoshop was giving me the hardest time...I got all my drop-shadows in and then I'm not quite sure what I did...but they all disappeared...and no matter what I did I couldn't get them I decided to just finished it off minus the drop-shadows.
Stuart took this photo of me and my sisters this last weekend...needless to say he's not the best with a sister's and I all haven't all been together since the Fall of 2006 - it was nice to be together and if it wasn't for my Dad insisting on us all getting for a picture we wouldn't even have this one..."thanks dad!"

...well this went up today in the front yard...I know we haven't lived in Spokane long...only about 7 months...we have the greatest Realtor! we are leaving Spokane shortly after April 15th. Stuart is finishing up Tax Season and then we are heading back to the Tri-Cities...Stuart will be going back to the Port of Benton he was promoted to Assistant Executive Director. He will also be resuming his own tax business when we return. Currently, we are looking for a place to call home and god forbid even considering rebuilding...who knows what we will end up doing. Ben will be going back to Tapteal to finish up the school year and in the Fall we will hopefully know where we will be to know where him and Camryn will attend school. Mason is already enrolled at Gateway Montessori and so excited about attending school for me...I will continue doing this mommy thing! (at least for awhile longer)
