So, the boys had their surgery and it was a tad rougher than I anticipated! Imagine that! hehe
Brandt had trouble with his fluid draining and being uncomfortable. Oh and hearing...he hears everything now! hehe It's very distracting for him.
Layne was a rockstar! The nurse had him take out his own IV at the hospital and he did it without a single tear. He did have a rough time for awhile and I was concerned about dehydration on day 3. But, we made it through. It took him 2 full weeks to finally eat normally again. And now?? There is no stopping him!! He is eating me out of house and home. :)
I feel like I am finally getting back into the swing of life around here. The kids were away (minus Brandt) at my in-laws place and had an awesome time of pool, beach, and bible school fun. I had fun starting my next project - the master bedroom makeover. *grins* I got the paint about 2/3 of the way up and got some of Andy's grandfather's furniture moved in. It's slow going, but I love the color and how it is coming together!
I created this layout during my little blog hiatus and I wanted to come and share it with you.
I adored (no pun intended) this polaroid paper! I hoarded it and hoarded it and decided if I liked it so much, I might as well USE it. So, I had these pictures laying around and got to work.
I used my xacto knife and cut out some squares and then placed the patterned paper behind it. I made my own banner here and added some MME brads and a little bling too. I punched some confetti and placed it in a glassine envelope and then glued it down to the back of the page as well. And I just had to use that awesome stamp... and it looks perfect on top of that little confetti addition.
I used the tops of some tags to add a little pop of dimension to the page. For the twine, I punched holes in the side of the tag and threaded it through, so that the tag didn't pop off the page due to the bulk of the twine.
And finally, I used the Heidi Swapp rubons that come in her polaroid die cuts to add a little more embellishment to the banners on the patterned paper. Plus a little pop of color with the brads and bling and I call this page complete.
I hope that you are having a relaxing Sunday! I am off to finish a great book I am reading....while the boys are napping. Shhhh! :)
