Sickness, rejection, and some scrapping.

Yes, the sickness remains. You know that whole body ache you get before you get the flu? I've had it for almost a week now. Motrin helps, but for some reason any time I take it I get a fever. Strange, seeing how it's supposed to help fevers. Oh well, at least my kids seem better. If they had been sick today too I don't know what I would have done. I lived on the couch and in my bed. Luckily Anton came home early so he took the kids and I slept all afternoon. So nice.

As for the rejection, I got turned down for the Little Dreamer Designs creative team. They's posted on their blog that they wanted to email all those selected before posting the list and I checked my email and I had one! I was so excited thinking I'd got in only to find it was a rejection email. Sigh. Oh well, there's always next time. Besides, the girls at Weeds and Wildflowers keep me plenty busy. Also the sweet Sara Carling sent me her newest kit today to work with. It's so colorful and fun. Check it out:

It's called Late Blooms and it's available HERE at Scrap Artist.

Here's the page I made with it:

Dug back into the old photos for that one. It's different than the style I've been doing lately and it was a nice change. Plus I was using it to escape from my whining children so it was therapy too.

So I think that's about it for today. I hope you all have a lovely evening, or afternoon, or morning depending on when you read this and where you live!

I'm sorry you're not feeling well and that you didn't make the Little Dreamers CT. Hopefully something even better will come along! You are soooo lucky you're on Weeds and Wildflowers though...I think next time I'm going to clear my schedule so I can try out for that one! :)

Bummer, I was hoping you would get that one!! Tylenol flu helps a lot with that southern sickness! It killed me the first couple of years I lived here. Flu season year round! Love the page!!
