A Fall, Some Nausea, and Scrapping, OH MY!

Well, it has been an interesting Christmas Vacation....a couple of days before, I took a lovely (sarcasm) fall down the stairs.  I had to miss two days of school, but by Chrismas, I was feeling much better.  We had a wonderful Christmas here, with old friends and family. Two nights later found me throwing up for several hours....what the heck?  It took me two days to recover from that.  And then yesterday, finally feeling AWESOME, I was sorting some clothes.  I bent to pick up a SHIRT, a lightweight shirt, and I did something to my back that almost defies description!  It's hell getting old, people!
Anyway, I was able to fit some crafting in between pain and vomiting, and I received some wonderful news...I won a sketch challenge over at Burlap and Buttercups!  I won a nifty prize of beautiful trims!
If you haven't been to this site, it is a really cool kit club---love their stuff.  They also have a blog with challenges. I bought some of their older kits on clearance and those are what I used to complete my layout. Here is the winner (blogged about it the other day)!
 I was lamenting to a friend that since my time on Sketchabilities is over, I was really hoping to have some other teams to participate on...and lo and behold, the very day the last Sketchabilities challenge went live, I received an email with some very good news.....
Can't share it with you yet, but I promise to very soon!
I certainly hope your vacation/holidays were physically better than mine!
Thanks for looking :o)


  1. Happy New Year Sheila! Thanks so much for your recent comments on my blog!! I requested to stay on with Sketchabilities for another 3 months as I love Karan's sketches so much! Congrats on your win & can't wait for you to announce your big news - woohoo!! And oops to all your injuries - I've fallen down the stairs myself - 6 years ago - and suffer chronic foot and ankle pain as a result - so hopefully you got off lightly!

  2. Congrats! and I think I already told you somewhere how much I loved this layout!!! :-)
