IC139 You're Sweet

Hello Everyone, and happy Saturday!
Today's inspiration challenge at SCS is Pink 'Lemonade Bags', I used this one: I love the colors and design on this bag.
I started with a bashful blue card stock base. Then I cut a white panel and scalloped the bottom with my corner punch. I added bashful blue dps, a strip of white cs and ribbon and adhered that to the base. I stamped the 'so many scallops' flower in Chocolate Chip ink and punched it out with my scallop punch, then I stamped my 'Boho Backgrounds' medallion once in choc.chip an once in bashful blue inks, punched out center flowers, layered them and attached them with a pearl brad. I stamped flourishes and sentiments, then attached the flower with dimensionals.
This is also the sketch for Julee Tilman's Mojo Monday Challenge.

Well, summer school is over, and I'm off until Aug. 28th. It's nice to get a break from the grind. It's been a rough couple of weeks, a roller coaster ride actually. My daughter, Ashley, found out that she was pregnant, but when we went for the ultrasound to pin-point how many weeks she was (10 1/2), the baby had no heartbeat. I saw MY baby's heart break, and mine broke too:( She's okay physically, but she's going through the grieving process, which is exactly what she's supposed to be doing.
My BFFs and I are kidnapping her tomorrow- she needs some time with the girls. I was really angry when I first saw her pain, but trying to see the good in this I realize how grateful I am that I saw how happy she was, and I shared that with her. I'm grateful for being a gramma for a brief moment, and now we have another Angel up there on our side.
Well, thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful week end, and keep smiling a lot! :):)
