having fun with Pink Paislee

Happy Sunday! It's a dreary and rainy morning here, but it's not so bad since it's been hot and sunny all week. It's a great excuse to stay inside today and hang out with the girls and Kenny.

I am trying to understand more about Ashlyn's disease, so I checked out a book about Crohn's and Colitis from the library yesterday. I have only read the first chapter, but I have learned so much and have already had some questions answered. Her pediatric gi doctor is 5 hours away, and I got the results via telephone, so I didn't get a chance to physically see anything and ask questions. I do have a list that I was planning to ask the doctor sometime this week, because she would have called me back to discuss them, but I think I am OK for now. We meet again on August 6th, so whatever else I feel I need answered, I will do so at that time. What I really need to work on is getting her a good gi doctor over here so we can manage her treatment easier.

Anyway, on to the scrappy stuff!

It was my week to post a little somethin' on the Ally Scraps blog and I chose to do a quick paper pleating technique. I made this pretty little box to go along with it. The red flower from the paper is just beautiful, so I had to doll it up a bit as well with some bling.

I have been on a creative roll for the past few days and I am loving it! I have also been on a Pink Paislee kick, thanks to a great contest over on CMK. I have been hoarding my Pink Paislee, and this was a perfect reason to get it out and create. :)

I made layouts for 3 of the 4 categories, but I doubt if I will make the last one. I have several other things I want to work on, plus I don't have the other 3 collections and would love to win one of them, especially 'Enchanting'... I have wanted that one since the day I first saw it. Wish me luck, I am going to need it because the entries from everyone else are out-of-this-world amazing!!!

here is my entry for the Enchanting category: Kara curled Ashlyn's hair and she looked so pretty! She told me that everyone at school told her how beautiful she is. She really needed to feel good and get some compliments because the past 5 months have been really rough on her.

for the Captivating category:

and for the fetching category:

That's it for today, I hope you have a beautiful week!
