Bad, bad Blogger

OK, so I haven't been the best blogger lately, but I do have an excuse/reason - I've had strep throat! How's that for ya?! It's been a while in the making and got worse Friday night, but then Sat morning I seemed pretty much fine again. Later that day, it was worse again, so I tried to get in to the doctor, but they're reached their "patient quota" at the clininc for the day, so even though their hours said they were still open, they weren't taking more patients.

I lined up Sunday morning and was the first one in and, not to my surprise, she thought I had strep. She wrote me a prescription and off I went. Last night wasn't great, but the good news is that I am feeling better and I'm not contagious anymore (apparently not after 24 hours of antibiotics)!

So, I haven't done too much though I did do my regular Friday night and Sunday at the store, but went home early both nights thanks to two girls that switched with me - thanks Laurie and Alisa! I scrapped a lot on Saturday and then some again today. Just wasn't feeling up to it on Sunday night.

I have been working on layouts for an online crop at Scrap Shotz. The grand prize is a Clip It Up, which I'm dying to have, but shouldn't spend the money on right now. Anyway, the deal was that if you did the 8 challenges posted on Friday night (7 layouts and one card), you'd be entered to win one of those beauties!

I'll post some more of my layouts over the next few days, but I did manage to get all of the challenges done! Here's the first one I did, which was Carla's 4 Fold Card Challenge. It's a little card that opens up like the top of a box...


Supplies: Cardstock is Bazzill. Patterned paper is Moxxie. Brads, heart clip and felt letters are Making Memories. Flower is Prima. MOD button heart.

OK, so there's a quick glimpse at the beginning of my creative fervour of the last few days. Stay tuned for more to come! Off to get some sleep...

Cheers,
Colleen

Colleen,
1. Hope you win the Clip It Up!
2. So sorry you're down with the Strepola -- get your rest and drink plenty of fluids, even if it hurts to.
3. So lucky YOU are to be able to access health care 7 days a week. I wish we had it....

Good to know you are feeling better, Colleen!

I saw your "blogversary" button and had to have it! Realized I'd already missed it for this year! Oh well, I have a better chance of remembering next year now!

Take care
