A little kink in the road!!


Hi everyone!!
I trust your Thursday is treating you well!

Last night we had a little kink in our road! Benny was having severe neck pain and had been feeling nauseous and had a terrible headache and fever. We thought we should take him to Urgent Care just to be safe. They thought it would be best to take him to the ER to rule out meningitis. The poor boy had to have a spinal tap, but the test results turned out negative, thank goodness!! He was given some medication for the pain and you can tell in this picture that it was working!!
Today he is still feeling terrible...(he doesn't have any more of the medication the ER nurse gave him, lol). He is in bed letting the illness run its course. The worst part is, he is missing the last regular season game today. He was quite angry about that, but we want him better for the playoffs!!!

Little Red Scrapbook Challenge!!!

I want to invite you all over to Little Red Scrapbook for a little challenge!!!
This month's kit features Webster's Pages papers and I think that the
papers are so pretty I thought it would be fun to do a layout about ourselves, but not just any layout.....

Write about what you love most about yourself. It could be something physical or a personality trait or whatever comes to mind. Think of the one thing you wouldn't change about yourself for anything!

This will be good for all of us to do!! So many of us focus on the things we don't like about ourselves...it will be good to focus on the positives and will be a good memory of ourselves to leave for our families!!

I chose to focus on my eyes. You can tell if I am happy, sad, angry or excited just by looking into my eyes. . My eyes tell the whole story!! "My eyes are the windows to my heart"
The photo in the layout was taken by my sweet friend Susan Beth Breuner!!! Thanks Susan Beth!!!

The key is painted with Ranger's distress crackle paint in antique bronze. I also cut apart the Hambly transparency and layered it along with my patterned papers. I just love those birdcages!!

I am having a blast working with these papers!!! If you haven't gotten your October kit, you better hurry!! These aren't going to last for long!!!!

Have a great day everyone!
Thanks for stopping by!!!
