The Week That Was

We got back from our vacation last week but just when I thought we were going back to our daily routine, my girls Julia and Ally both got sick! I had to miss more days from the clinic to take care of them and I was also sick myself. They both had high grade fever with cough which kept me on my toes. Believe me, its easy for me to forget that I'm a doctor when my kids are the ones who are sick. I think it's the added pressure to make sure that they get well fast. LOL! When they were sick, I needed some scrap therapy to keep me sane. So when they were asleep and I get a couple of hours of free time, I sneaked in my scrap corner to work on some layouts.

Here are 2 layouts I finished for Scrappin Kids Challenges Fiesta:

For Cookie's Color Combo Challenge (blue, red, green, yellow, & kraft):

Title: Lean On Me
Journaling (from the song): when your'e not strong, and I'll be your friend. I'll help you carry on, for it won't be long, till I'm gonna need somebody to lean on. Used Creative Imaginations; Scenic Route Sonoma; Basic Grey Offbeat pps; Chatterbox chipboard sticker; AC thickers; Prima stamp.

A closer look:

For Issa's 5 scrapbooking brands challenge:

Title: First Love
Journaling: Daddy is a daughter's first love.
Used Making Memories, Fancy Pants, Jenni Bowlin, Creative Imaginations, Prima, 7Gypsies, and all about scrapbooking materials.

I'm also sharing some layouts I did which were intended for some challenges but I failed to upload it before the deadline...oh well!

For the April sketch challenge at Coordinates Collections.

Title: New Look
Journaling: You have super straight hair but after untying your braids, this is how you look.
Used BG Bittersweet pps for this one.

For the Creative Scrappers 3 picture challenge.

Title: Busy Lil Hands
Journaling: Kids are never more serious than when they are at play.
Used Pink Paislee and Sassafrass pps.

Thanks for looking!
