I wanted to do a wordless Wednesday post today....but I found that there is just too much else to share.  

Yesterday morning I got up with a slight headache and by 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon it was a pounding headache that had me so nauseous that all I wanted to do is get home.  When I got home my specs was missing and for the life of me I don't know what I did with them.  They are not at work, not in my car and not at home.  I only got them last year in December and just thinking of the cost of replacing them makes me feel quite sick.  They were multi- focal lenses with the tint that makes them go dark outside.  I feel quite lost without them.  Does things like that happen to you...where you just can't remember what you did with something or where you put them?

Anyhoo, I am so glad that my appointment with the neurosurgeon is next week and then hopefully it will be the end of this insanity;-) Wednesdays are usually my day off and I am spending my time today to catch up with some scrappy assignments for Sketch Support.  Later today I will be fetching my little ones and tonight we will take them to the Spur. (their favourite place to eat)  For now let me share this week's sketch and layout with you.

Supplies used - Cardstock: Bazzill; Printed papers: Crate Paper, Echo Park(Life is Good); Stickers: Echo Park; Buttons: Basic Grey; Flowers: Petaloo; Punch: Martha Stewart.

Variation #1: I punched the background block.
Variation #2: I used 4x6 photos.
Variation #3: I cut the pattern paper strips 9 inches long.
Variation #4: I added trim below the photos.

This documents the day Leane decided to cut her own hair.

Last weekend I looked at some of the craft ideas that I have pinned on Pinterest, and two of the layouts could be done with scraps of paper.  I loved the August Limited Edition kit that I purchased from My Creative Scrapbook.  It has such soft and dreamy colours and I have used most of it on other photos taken during our July photo I was down to scraps.  This is what I did with the scraps.  

With this layout I am also playing along with Get Picky.  Here is there inspiration challenge for this month.   You must use fabric on your layout and I used lace trim on both the layouts below.

Supplies used:  Cardstock - Bazzill;  Printed papers - Melissa Francis 5th Avenue; Rubons - Kaisercraft; Flowers - Prima; Alphabet - American Craft; Pearls - Melissa Francis.
