Well, I have some good news and some bad news....

The bad news is that the Pink Eye virus is still raging in our home. First Gavin got it. Then Bekah. Then Gavin again. And now my husband.

I am really hoping that this is it. I am so over this nasty stuff!!

On to the good news...I have a couple of sneak peek pictures from the March kit at Scrappy Chics.

Make sure to be a "fan" on Facebook and you can see all the other sneak peeks from the design team!

not this kind of pink

Everyone who knows Bekah, knows that her favorite color is pink.

But not this kind of pink....

Yep, the pink eye bug has hit our home. Gavin had it last week and on his last day of eye drops, Bekah woke up with it in her right eye. The next morning it was in both eyes.

Doesn't she look so sad? Everytime I put the eye drops in she tells me that it "hurts so bad". Sniff. I hate causing her any more discomfort but she HAS to have the eyedrops. I told her that if she doesn't take the drops then I will have to take her to the doctor and he will have to cut out her eyeballs because they are infected.

Yes, I really did say that. o_O

As morbid as that didn't even phase the little bugger. She still protests when I pull out the eyedrops.

I'm just hoping that this will be the end of the pink eye and not just a vicious cycle.

Well, I'm off to do some more cleaning!

an oldie but a favorite

I've been looking back at some of the older stuff I've done and I found this card that I made for my mom last September. This card turned out to be one of my most favorite ones that I have made. I love the colors and the country/rustic feel of it.

The papers are by October Afternoon. The envelope by Maya Road. I love the denim flower! I think I need to make more of those :)

I've been a bit laid up lately. I have an injured wrist that I'm going to have to go have x-rayed. Probably tomorrow. It won't keep me from crafting, though!! :)

a birthday

Here's a card that I made for a lady at work.

I used papers from the February kit at Scrappy Chics. The swirl bling was from an older kit from SC. The pink flowers were from my stash.

Thanks for looking!!

Wordless Wednesday--Caught in the act

How could I be mad at her for using my expensive glue, ALL my little jewels and my never been opened ink when she tells me she's making something for me?

When I posted my projects done with February's Scrappy Chics kit, I forgot to add this layout.

This is of Bekah (again!) with her most prized possessions (at the moment). My Little Ponies are so sweet...I love their little "cutie" marks on their back leg. I remember playing with MLP when I was a bit older than her. Its crazy how history repeats itself :)

Anyway, on to the layout...

Everything you see is available in the kit, except for the pink roses (my stash) and the white lace ribbon (a previous kit).

I really wanted to use the swirl bling, but it just seemed to big for my layout. So I trimmed it down and it fit perfectly. :)

I still have a few more projects to show with this months kit. I'll be sure to post those real soon!

I'm so glad January is over. Ugh. It was a dreadful month. I will elaborate later, but for now lets relish in the fabulous kit for February from Scrappy Chics! This first layout is of dear, sweet Bekah. She had fallen asleep on the couch all decked out in her "Cowgirl Jessie" costume. Boots included.

I really love this line by October Afternoon. Love how the colors can be used for a girl or a boy.
The little yellow roses were white. I sprayed some yellow mist on them to match the papers.
Hmm...I think the banners are becoming a trademark for me just like the butterflies. Lol.--------------------- -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This next layout is another one of Bekah. This is what happens when you give a 3 year old a pair of funky glasses...
The grey ruffles with the rhinestones was in a past Scrappy Chics kit. The black flower is the lace that comes in the kit. I cut it in half and then twisted it into a flower. The birdcage was cut from my Cameo (love!!) that I got for Christmas.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------- On this next project I finally used my Cinch!! And it was so easy! I made this sketch book for one of my girlfriends daughter.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Fianlly, this last project is a card that I made for a lady at work. Like I said before, I really love this line!!
Please make sure you stop by the Scrappy Chics blog to see what the other ladies did with this months kit. There is also a chance to win some free scrappy goodies on the blog as well. Thanks for stopping by!
