Something else I worked on today. Finally got around to carving those foam pumpkins we got on clearance last year at M's. I had been wanting to make some "arrangements" in them like I had seen at M's, so this is what I came up with:)K...I really need to get in the shower and go to bed. Today was not a fun morning. And the cooler mornings make it really hard to climb out of the nice, warm bed into the cold:(

I was dying to work on this one. I lifted this off ScrapNKary on sb.com. I absolutely love this photo. I ordered the papers for this one online and they got here JUST in time. Papers are Elsie Roxie line as well as the cardstock Trinkets. Other supplies...textured cardstock, ribbons, Doodlebug bloom, Prima Esprit, Paper Studio polka dot button, Basic Grey flourish rubons and American Crafts Remarks.
I think this one still needs SOMETHING. I used black textured cardstock and cut the French Twist paper with my Cutterbees. The two other patterns are French Twist as well. The other is Creative Imaginations. Also used a bit of Queen & Co. felt ribbon. I'll update this one once I add to it:)
Update on the happenings around here. Last Friday was early release. Mattie went to spend the weekend with my mom. Saturday morning we got up early and went to breakfast then Victoria and I did a little shopping at Target:) We found these really cool Max Clips that we had been looking for for her Disney MP3 player thingie. These play actual full length movies. We got the Cheetah Girls 2 and High School Musical:) Afterwards we went for a walk at the park; just the two of us:)
We had a birthday party that afternoon, so we came home and got ready. The party was at 1:30 at Peter Piper's. Afterwards, I stopped at the Big Lots next door and found these really cool Provo Craft chipboard letter tiles...too bad there was only three boxes and they were all the same color. I got them all and gave one to Lal;)
We came home and I got ready from crop. Crop night went well. Like I said, we went home early, but still scrapped at Lal's.
The next day while out and about I notice a "rash" on Victoria which Steve says he had noticed the night before. It looked pretty bad. So we get home and I get her in the bath and it seems to look somewhat worse.
The next morning was NOT good. It looked just as bad and really red and somewhat "inflamed". I am remember that she ran a fever the previous Monday-Wednesday that mysteriously just "went away" and I am looking at the "rash" and guessing she has Roseola or Fifth Disease.
I took her in so the school nurse could take a look and she guessed the same thing, but asked that I take her to the dr. and confirm just to make sure it wasn't something else that was contagious. So I was lucky enough to get her in at 11:20 and the dr. confirmed. She also said that she sounded like she was getting an asthmatic cough and prescribed some meds and a chamber (which the insurance didn't cover and was $57!!!). So I had to run and get those filled.
She was back to school the next day, but the rash comes and goes (which the dr. said it would) and today is a particularly noticeable day. It has now spread to the tops of her legs:( Hopefully it will start fading soon. This is what she looks like today...
FYI...it looks worse than it is. She's not terribly itchy or anything, but it does look really bad. At this point, when the rash erupts, she is no longer contagious. The week prior is the contagious stage which is tough, cause there really aren't many symptoms other than the low grade fever and possibly a sore throat or little bit of a runny nose. Symptoms associated with a cold or something which is what I thought it was. Which is probably how she caught it too; off someone at school who didn't know they had it either:(

I used a sheet of my Bazzill Edge cardstock to trace onto the blue background cardstock and then cut it out with my Cutterbees. I did the same with the lighter patterned MME paper as well except using a smaller scallop. The papers are MME Wild Asparugus except for the text paper that is Paper Studio and the solid brown which is MME Bohemian. Oh, the blue and brown that is peeking out behind the pic is also MME Bohemian:)
I used Scribbles paints to make the circles. I used white and glitter gold. I love the look of that. Now I gotta stock up on Scribbles;) Other products...Prima daisies, Plain Janes chipboard flourishes, MM paint in Espresso, buttons, stitched groisgrain ribbon, Bazzill chip, Heidi Swapp bloom, Autumn Leaves flourish stamp and BG white flourish rubon.

Here's a pic of some yummy Heidi Swapp stuff I picked up at 911 the other day.
Tonight Mattie went to his first school dance:) He was really excited and came home and showered up and everything...so cute:) I remember school dances when I was in middle school. Ours were not in the evening though. They were right after school. Ah...to be young again:)
