expecting

Happy Wednesday everyone!  Although I have to say it's not so happy in the Ghahary household this morning.  Mostly because I think Darian might still have strep.  Again.  We *just* finished his 10 days of antibiotics this weekend and yesterday he started complaining about a tummy ache and headache - the exact same things he complained about when he was first diagnosed with strep two weeks ago - and sure enough he has a low grade fever as well this morning.  So no school for him today while I wait for the doctor's office to open and see if I can get him in there for a sick appointment and another strep test.  I am so over the boys being sick.  Actually it's been mostly Darian.  And apparently so is he.  Poor thing was so distraught yesterday that he couldn't play in his tball game last night.  He was crying and saying "I don't want to be sick!  Why can't someone else take a turn being sick?!?" And then he proceeded to try to blame it all on his brother who hasn't been sick in months mind you.  Pretty typical.  ;)

Well on to happier and scrappier things for now.  This next layout I created as the guest designer for Scarlet Lime this month was a lot of fun to make mostly because I got to play with my new 3D rose die from Sizzix.  hee hee!  My baby brother (okay not so baby - he's 31!) and his wife Regan are expecting their first baby in July.  And they're having a little girl - YAY for another little girl in the family! 


The colors of this layout are not your typical little girl colors especially with the splash of blue but I think that's what I like so much about it.  I created a trio of roses with my new Sizzix die (seriously folks this die is SO well worth the money if you like creating paper roses - so easy to use!) and did some fun sewing and misting as well. 




I punched a bunch of flowers using my Martha Stewart Chrysanthemum large punch and laid them on my background cardstock before misting with orange Maya Road mist.  I then added some yellow stitching to the flower centers.


Well there you have it!  I have one more layout to share tomorrow that I created with this kit.  But for now I'm off to play nurse to my sick little one.  Thanks for stopping by! :)
