Sketchabilities #92

Here is the Final Page for the March- May Team at Sketchabilities.  Our term is already over.  Time flies when your having fun. I used the Divine collection for this page.  The picture is our last Mother's Day with my Mom.  She had spent the weekend on a Lake George Cruise with her Brother and Sister and came home to a Traditional meal cooked by her Sons in Law.  I managed to stay in my PJ's all day. My sister Julie is beside me.   I Love the Picture. We were all happy and enjoying the day. We found out in August she had Cancer.  We lost her the following April. So Mother's day is still hard for me.  But my family works hard to make it a happy day.
