My Last Retro Sketch

Hi and Happy Saturday Friends!

This will be my last Retro Sketch card as a DT member.  In fact, over the next couple of weeks, I will  announce a couple more teams I have stepped down from...I plan on finishing up March. Then, starting April with a fresh start of re-direction!  
Time to do some spring cleaning in several areas of life.
I'm needing to focus more on my family, home, my digi shop and homeschooling.
That doesn't mean I won't be crafting or blogging...I'll just be doing 
We were blessed with a wee little baby boy in September, he was born addicted to drugs and went through withdrawal for 30 days in the hospital. We picked him up on day 31.  
He is precious and we all love him so much.  
With his doc. appts. SS meetings, Court dates, visits with his bio mom, the 
concern over his future, etc etc, etc...I feel I need to be all I can be to him and our other 5 blessings.
Not to mention, we have no idea what the judge will decide so I want to spend all the time cuddling and loving him that I can.  
We go back to court on Monday, so any and all prayers would be greatly appreciated!
Also, he is the half-brother to the 2 little boys we have had full custody of for over 4 years.
Our oldest, McCoy (turned 6 in Feb._ is very attached to his lil' brother.
We are praying that no matter what happens, McCoy will be able to handle it!
Thank you my wonderful friends!

Thank you Arielle for inviting me to join you at Retro Sketches.
I wish you grand success and lots of FUN.  Love ya Girl!!

Now, for my RS card.  This week we are using one of my past sketches.
You can find it HERE.
For this card, I used one of Hannah's Bug & Roo digis - Olivia

I also used My Mind's Eye  - A Happy Heart paper.
I found it at Meijer's back in Jan. and got it as a Birthday Gift, but just now found a chance to use it.
I plan on changing things and having more time for fun, "when I want to" crafting!

For all the challenge details and to see what the other girls have designed look HERE

Have a glorious Saturday!!

Blessings - LORi BOYD

Love your work no matter where you design from! I see your heart is enormous and I'm sure you are making the right decision for you and yours! I wish you the best of luck in court and as a special needs mom myself, I hope he is blessed enough to stay with you so that he will be ever so taken care of!
