Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Nakedness
and some hospital photos of Cody.....
As much as I am surprised that I do enjoy doing sketches now, I always look forward to our challenge week at Stuck on U! So in our theme for this month (thought up by a Finn, no less! LOL!) is patriot so this week...
stars and stripes!
That can be good and traditional or any version in between!
Our last weeks red, white and blue challenge was great but I didn't go too traditional for it so I did this time. And with such great photos, I easily felt inspired! Plus that was the day we were released from the hospital so I was happy to document that in a scrap page!
(I had to add a *star* over my little naked boy so I retook this photo indoor which is why the quality isn't as good as the others...)
I decided to do some paper weaving as my stripes! And also my first attempt at sewing..that's going to take some work! LOL! I love how the paper turned out because it totally looks and feels like a place mat! LOL! Perfect for a 4th of July LO!
I really think I ought to do ALL my titles this way! Putting them on cereal chipboard just helps them so much to stand out on the page! I first cut my title in chipboard, then cover in paper and another layer over the shadow!
I layered my MS star punch with the same paper as the weaved background.
And I thought I would add some of the photos from our not so fun experience last week...this is Cody the first time in the ER. You can see his eyes are open but he is really not all there...
Even with all the wires and the huge wrap job for his IV in his arm (and one in his foot) he still managed to get into his normal sleep position...I just thought he looked really sweet here...
This one just looks worse really then it is...he was totally asleep during the entire process (well he did sleep for almost 48 hrs and I am not kidding that he slept during almost everything they did to him!). So this is when he got an EEG on his brain. It only showed that he was in a deep, deep sleep. Luckily nothing scary, like seizures showed! Thank God!
And the end it on a happy note! This is the last day when we got to go home! Look at that sweet, happy face! Awake and ready for his very favorite Cheerios! Luckily that curtain was drawn behind him because there was a very ill teen there so we couldn't have taken this photo.
