What a rollercoaster 6 weeks

I fully intended to update sooner but things got out of hand for me...or foot, I should say. Ever since my surgery, life has been kind of out of control. On 9/10, I fell and hurt my leg. It was a freak accident really, I missed a step...long story short: ER visit, Crutches, pain and swelling, and then everynight for the last few weeks, after work, I have had to stay off I did a lot of tv watching...I think I am on the mend but the ankle is still sore and swells sometimes, so I have had to slow down.

Have been trying to scrap all the while...I made afew things, but never got around to putting them up! Finally now, I have a few spare minutes before the game at 3 (GO VIKINGS!!!!!) to update.

This is a layout I did with an addon from Studio Calico that my sis sent me as a pick-me-up! I added some papers from the Girls' Paperie line to make it more, well, pink. My DD is a tomboy at heart and so well, as Moms go, one must mark the rare occasion when they get to be all girly-girl with their tomboys...LOL

Crate Paper Restoration! This is possibly one of my all time favorite lines ever. I am trying not to hoard it...because my experience is that the longer you hold on to it, the harder it is to use later.

Cosmo Cricket has got some awesome color/paper designers. I was not prepared to love the Pixilicious, but the colors are wonderful and whimsical and well, it is lavender, and I LOVE any lavenders!

Finally, A little layout about my DS who is a senior. I had to scrap a few of his senior pics. We have not decided which ones we will print for giving out yet, but I picked out a few mom-favorites for me to use exclusively! Again, Crate Paper was just right for this!

Well that is all for now. Just so you are aware, my Christmas card making frenzy has started and I will be back later in the week to post the first ones...I made 8 on Friday night! This is the time of year I just love...I can never stop at the required 40 though...I get in a Christmas card making phase and it is hard to stop, so stay tuned! Love and Hugs, Lara

...Oh, and GO VIKINGS!!!!!!!!!!...(just had to say that again)
