Southern Swamp Funk

I've given it a name, this sickness that keeps plaguing me. This is my third time being sick in a month and a half. My sis who lives in Louisiana said it took her out when she first moved here too. Therefore I've dubbed it the Southern Swamp Funk. I hope none of you ever get it!!

But even through all the drugged, snotty haze I managed to scrap yesterday. Here's my LO:

I used Minna's awesome Summer Fun kit available here. So colorful! I was bummed I couldn't work the stitched birds into this LO, but they will show up somewhere, I promise.

Today is Ella's birthday. She's 3!! I can't believe it. For a couple of months now she has declared that she is having a Shrek party with purple presents. And who am I to deny this? She last night while she was sleeping we decorated the house with green and purple streamers and green balloons and Shrek accessories. I even made sure to buy purple wrapping paper for her presents. I'll have pictures of all this after we've partied tonight. Too bad the main gift won't be here for a week or so. that's what I get for ordering it so late. We got her a play kitchen. But she's got plenty of other gifts to keep her going until then. Can't wait for the party! I'm making a Shrek cake, but I've got to go to the grocery store first to get the eggs for the cake. Nothing like leaving everything to the last minute!
