Playing catch up and Just one sketch - 4

I'm playing catch up now- it was a harrowing week for me last week - there was lots to organise and I was on edge that all would go well- thankfully it did and I feel that Dad would have approved..
It wasn't really a day for taking lots of photographs- but we did get one lovely one of the boys next to their Grandad's car which went to the service and I thought I would share it with you ..
I know he would have loved this and we tried to make the day warm and friendly and it felt like a community coming together to show their love and respect for him - which was lovely......
and now on to some scrappy stuff - 
I'm on to number 4 now on Kirsty's 'Just one sketch' which was to use monochrome colours.
I decided on brown and black and hope it worked - I did a quite a bit of stamping on the layout as I hadn't got lots of black embellishments.I used some more of the last Gottacraft kit papers.
There is a bit of a story behind this jumper. We actually bought it for our youngest for Christmas but true to form - they had a swap around - so it ended up belonging to eldest son instead!

What a brilliant picture of your boys with the car. You really did him proud, he was such a well loved man and everything was organised so well for everyone to say their farewells.
It is so nice to see you back in blog land and being 'crafty' again! What a lovely page - I have quite a liking for kraft paper at the moment and this is a perfect layout for those colours.

Hello, glad you're back and that everything went okay. Beautiful car - how proud he must have been, of that lovely car...
The lads all look very smart too.

Great "jumper" layout - I like the kraft background - and the butterflies fit in very well, even though they are usually used on "girly" pages. It's a nice jumper too.

I love that photo of your boys with your dad's car! Glad to hear the day of honoring your dad well well!

Love the layout and now I know what a "jumper" is. In the US it's a dress - like a slip-dress that is worn with a blouse underneath. What you call a jumper is our "sweater." Learned something new today... ;o)

Love the photo of your boys and the beautiful car. I had to call David over last week to look when you had photos on your blog and he fell in love with the car too. Your layout is as beautiful as ever and I love the stamping - brave girl!
