Pocket Chick Pick

Today it was my turn to pick a Layout from the Fancy Pants Facebook page and use it as inspiration for my own project. It is not easy picking one when there are so many wonderful designs posted all the time!

Check out the Layout that inspired me (by Sandie Vincent) on the Fancy Pants blog.
Here is my take on it...
I hope you all have a great weekend!

Dogs and Boys

When I got home today after work I found my son sitting in the kitchen with my husband, my son getting pain medicine administered and nursing a wound on his hand from a dog bite. Two of our dogs had gotten into a fight and he tried to separate them. Off I went with Max to our local GP to get the bite looked at. The doctor cleaned the wound, taped it together (with some kind of sticky tape...I wonder if my good old double sided tape would have done the job?) and prescribed antibiotics against an infection. I'm just glad it wasn't his face.

Last weekend I had some time to play and made two Layouts...

MME has a Sketch Challenge on their blog and I've decided to play along...the challenge was to use a song lyric for inspiration. I've used "Just the Way you are' by Bruno Mars.

Jillibean Soup also has a Sketch challenge up on their blog...can you see a pattern here? I love Sketches!

Lily Bee project

Some of the Lily Bee DT were asked to come up with projects that look back on the school year. I decided to use my daughters end of year report as journaling in this layout, transferring some of the actual report onto the Layout. I've highlighted some of the words by using ABC Stickers in various colors. (The balloons in the top right corner are dies and stamps from PapertreyInk.) To see what the other designers came up with head over to the Lily Bee blog!

The rain has finally stopped here after almost three days of torrential downpour! And just in time my dryer decided to stop working yesterday! It always happens when you least need it right? Better call Mr Miele!
