First Day Back/LO Share

Well after 3 months off work, and a few months prior to that at half days, today was the first day I was back to work FT! It felt great. I am exhausted tonight, but a productive exhausted. I worked in our GI unit today, put in a bunch of IV's, did some patient monitoring, and then worked in another clinic in the afternoon! Nice to be back treating patients again! I sure missed it!

On another note... I have been scrapping. Got 4 LO's completed with the August Bad Girls kit, and another one almost finished! It wasn't my fave kit, but I used a good chunk of it so I am happy with that!

Here they are!


This LO is my entry into the August BG's Apron Challenge! The idea was to scrap a goal, and this is a habit I am struggling to quit (and with the return of my health a new goal to make me even stonger...WINK)! I used the graphite glitter mist to give it a grunge "nicotine" look, and scrapped my pack of smokes...LOL Hey everything is scrapable right??? LOL


I have always loved this pic of Angelina and I remember thinking she looked so cheeky in this pic. I used some vintage papers I got in my "junk" swap.


CRAP CRAP CRAP....LOL Notice the piece of woodchip that made it's way on my LO....LOL If you notice behind the pic that is where it came from... I can't believe I didn't notice that before I snapped away... I'm such a dork! LMAO ANYWAYS.....I LOVE LOVE LOVE how this LO turned out. I think it's one of my new faves. It was based on Pencil Lines sketch #97


I had alot of fun with this one. I am not too sure if thus picture of the LO reflects this but I inked the naked tag, and then stickled it to death...lol Also used the gold glitter mist on the Beautiful title. I handcut the swirl, that was from the PP. It was a very creative processed LO. I used the Pencil Lines sketch #99

So that is about it for now. Tomorrow John and I take Angelina to meet her JK teacher. Alexa start school on Thursday and Angelina on Monday! I'll post on how that goes at that time.... LOL

Yikes! I read the journalling on your first LO and I almost cried too. Good luck on quitting. It must be so hard, but you've got a good reason to stick to it, babe. (((hug)))

Hey, all your other pages rock too! I love your style, even when you're working with product that's not 100% in your comfort zone.

As for your girls, they're both going to be in school? How can that be?! Wow! Good luck to them... and to you too. lol
