The challenge over at Bitten By the Bug, was to use the Doodlecharms, bunny cut. I cut her out in pink and cut the shadow in black. I used my sewing machine to stitch the two together. I added some googly eyes, eyelashes, whiskers, and Doodlebug flowers. (Hey what a coincidence! Doodlecharms cartridge, Doodlebug flowers.....Yes, I am a weird gal at times! LOL) Anywhoo, the paper is by Memory Box. The scalloped paper is by Creative Imaginations. I've had this black paper clip forever and finally used it up! I stamped the sentiment with Karen Foster's Snap Stamps.
If any of you read my blog on a regular basis you may know that Cortney needed a new wheelchair. The old one she had since the age of 5. And yes she will be 13 soon! We ordered it back in September of 2007! It is a pretty extensive process because we needed to write letters of medical necessity and get approval from the insurance. The vendor met with Cort's therapist to find a chair suitable for her needs. We made a list, submitted it, got approval, and the chair was ordered. In November, I got a call saying it was ready to be delivered. Well.... the minute the vendor brought the chair in the door, I did a big, "Uh OH!" EVERYTHING we had ordered for her was completely WRONG! Down to the color and EVERYTHING! IT was a huge disaster and the chair had to go back! So I proceeded to call the manager, and we had a 3 way conversation on the phone about what was wrong and how this was going to be corrected. The manager apologized and gave me his word that it would be corrected. IT was supposed to be in by the end of January. I gave it until Feb. 13th and then I called. I wasn't able to get a hold of the manager for a couple of days. So I called HIS boss. She called the next day to inform me.........the chair had NEVER been ordered! "WHAT?!!!" Are you freaking kidding me?" Needless to say, I was livid!!! Everyone had passed the buck to someone else and it never got ordered. She assured me it would be taken care of. A new vendor came out to remeasure her (Cuz it HAD been many months since the original measurement) and then order the chair. FINALLY, this past Friday she got it! The new vendor spent lots of time making sure it fit her correctly and thankfully it does! Of course that night after giving Cort a bath I asked her what she wanted to do.....She stated, "Watch a video......in my OLD chair!" LOL!
No long lengthy stories about my guy. Just the usual 11 year old stuff.....happy one minute, and crabby the next......gotta love puberty kicking in! HE is still pretty cute though........
