Well it has been awhile since I have been here on my blog. I had a stroke...well actually two strokes within 24 hours. I woke up and could not speak, move my right arm and my hand was curled up, plus my right leg was very wobbly! As you can imagine I was very shock but quickly started doing exercise later that day. The next day I was talking and could move my hand slightly. On the second day the rehab had me walking and to my surprise I did very well. Within 5 days I was moved to a rehabilitation center and was there for a week. By that time I was talking, moving my arm and hand, and walking throughout the building. I can write my name but writing a long sentence or paragraph my writing is beginning to be rather small and hard to read. I am doing much better now but going to out patient rehab. Things are looking much better. My bad cholesterol was 185 and I had a lot of stress. I have had to give up many things and now I am concentrating on taking care of myself and my husband.
Now on to these layouts. I did these for The Crafty Scrapper in February and was to post them in March. Well that did not happen. So I am showing several layouts that I did for the design team. This first one is my grandson Logan with his new and cute dog Stony.
Stoney has grown since this picture but he is still a puppy! I used Bo Bunny Safari Beast Paper, Safari Kingdom Paper, Safari Habitat Paper, Safari Palms Paper and Safari Corrugated Paper. I also used modeling paste, lots of flowers, punch cutter, etc.
Please see the following close ups!
I hope you like this one for it is one of my favorites! Please visit The Crafty Scrapper and you may see this layout there. On the back is a list of all the items I used.
This layout is called Going On An Egg Hunt. I used the beautiful paper from Authentique Treasure Collection. This is my grandson Colby getting ready to hunt for eggs. He is wearing his cowboy hat, stripe shirt, pull-ups, cowboy boots (on the wrong feet) and holding his Easter bucket.
Here are some close-ups!
Thanks for looking!
