Rejoining civilization...

Good morning!  I feel like I lost a few weeks of my life!  I had some major dental issues going on.  I was so miserable for so long.  It turned out I had an infection and now I have to have 2 teeth pulled.  I made my appointment with the oral surgeon for next week....now I'm just trying to focus on everything else BUT what's going to happen.  The anxiety is making me even more miserable....but at least the pain is gone...for now.

To keep my mind occupied, I've been trying to work on some stuff.  It's a slow process because somewhere in all this mess, I lost my mojo.  Hopefully, I can find it soon!

Here are a few things I worked on yesterday and early this morning...that's what happens when I can't sleep...

This was my first attempt at using Glubers and some RicRac ribbon:

This was the color palette from Color Me Scrappy:

and this is what I came up with:

I used up lots of bits and pieces from Jillibean to put together a page for this month's sketch challenge:

And here is my page:

I flipped a sketch from the Boys Rule blog to get these pictures to work:

I used some mulberry paper, DIY Thickers and fine glitter for the title, and some plastic confetti pieces. Then I just "dotted" Stickles all over the page.

And here is my take on sketch #151 for Twisted Sketches:

My little guy just went back to sleep.  He's dealing with allergies, so he's not feeling too good.  But while he relaxes, it gives me more quiet time.  

Have a great day!!!
