A Scrappy Afternoon

Well, things were quiet for a bit around here this afternoon because I decided to see if Kyle wanted a rest while Nathan had his nap. Kyle didn't have a great sleep last night, so I thought he might be tired and sure enough, he fell asleep almost right away. Since it was quiet, I thought I'd try one of the Scrapperie weekly challenges that also currently count for the Scrap-A-Lympics Contest that they're doing!

This was a lift challenge of Beth Price and I used my Estate Sale Scrapperie kit.

Supplies: Cardstock is Bazzill. Patterned paper is MME 29th Street. Clock die cut is MME. Lettering for title is Making Memories (small lettering) and American Crafts foam Thickers. The acrylic pieces are Maya Road. Misc. buttons. Ribbon is American Crafts. Ink for distressing is Palette Burnt Umber. Pen used was American Crafts Slick Writer.

Maybe I'll get a chance to do something scrappy again tonight with any luck!

Kyle is doing OK though still has his ups and downs. Every time I think we've turned a corner, we seem to take a step back, but I think that's normal. He doesn't want to eat a lot yet, but we're working on it slowly with some soft foods and hope that little by little it keeps improving. We have an appt with the doctor that did the surgery on Thursday for a check-up too to make sure all's well.

Hope everyone has a great evening!

Anyway... like I said... I just love the lo's you've been creating. Glad to hear that Kyle is doing well. And I pretty much don't know how you do it. Keep up the great work. You are amazing.
