PLEASE TAKE THE TIME to do an inventory of your home! A FIRE can destroy your life in a flash. I would HATE to have ANYONE go through what I am going through!!

Our Selfie


I got my scrap on today!! This week has been a busy one, and my foot is giving me some major fits. (I had tarsal tunnel surgery in September, and it took until January for it to completely heal. I went back to work for 3 weeks, then was off a week due to the Dr. thinking I had a stress fracture. I was in my boot again for 3 1/2 weeks and finally thought it was better. I worked for 2 days and then had a day off. Last Monday I went back to work, and was only able to work 4 hours as the pain was so BAD I couldn't walk. So, I am back in the boot again as I can't afford another $50 for a copay for the Dr to tell me that I need to wear the boot again. SO, I am just hoping that wearing the boot for awhile will take care of it. OK SORRY that went a bit long! LOL! But, that's my life and why I go in spurts of scrapping, then may be absent for awhile.)

ANYWAY I got my list of challenges all set up this morning and figured out my pictures to go along with them. I found a couple that were not sketch related, so I decided to combine them together. So, I got 3 challenges with this one layout.

Here is my layout, this is me and my Grand daughter Paisly aka Queenie, I was trying to get a good selfie of us and she just wanted to eat the phone!:
