Still sick and need title help!

OK, so I'm not feeling very clever this morning, but at least my chest doesn't feel like it has a 100lb weight on it anymore. That seems to have passed, but I still feel sick and have a brutal headache that the Advil I took doesn't seem to be helping. I'm supposed to be going to our monthly meeting for parents at the preschool tonight, but if I don't feel any better than this, I'll be giving it a miss.

Not too much going on today really. Same 'ol, same 'ol with Sophia coming and Kyle going to preschool this afternoon. Thankfully the kids were pretty good yesterday when I wasn't feeling up to par. Let's hope it's more of the same today!

I did muster up the energy to do a relatively quick layout in the afternoon while the little ones were napping and Kyle was at school. I was trying to take my mind off how awful I felt! These fun pictures of the boys with Rhys and Alex (the sons of my fabulous friends from Australia who were up in December) made me smile, so I had a go at them. This was for the Scrapperie Week 2 Sketch Challenge using one of Becky Fleck's sketches from PageMaps and I used the kit I just got in the mail: The Journey Home.

Supplies: Cardstock is Bazzill. Patterned paper is Collage Press and Cloud 9. Paint is Making Memories. Lettering is American Crafts Thickers chipboard. Font for journaling is Comic Sans MS. Stars are Technique Tuesday. Stitching done by machine.

I have some other pictures from that day and one of Julie and I that I want to scrap as well! Who knew that a meeting in a Japanese class more than 10 years ago would allow us to develop such an amazing friendship that has resulted in us being "BFF" even though we're a world apart! I was looking for older pictures of the two of us yesterday and it was so wonderful look at pictures of the momentous occasions in our lives that we've been able to share!

Love you Julie and miss you tons...

Well, I suppose that's about it for the time being and I'd better go do a few things before the whole house is up and Sophia is here! Just want to get rid of this headache!

Cheers,
Colleen

Awww, you're choking me up while I'm eating my cereal! It was sooooo good to see you guys at Christmas time. It is a shame that our boys aren't growing up knowing each other better. It was quite the effort to get them all sitting still on the couch together - what a great memory!
Got to run. Love the 'Home' layout, by the way.
Love ya too!
Jules.
