This week at BBTB, Carole is our lovely host! She challenged us to use the bird cut from the Storybook cartridge. I decided to break out this new paper I had purchased a bit ago from Making Memories. I love the rich fall colors of it! I dressed the bird's body up with glitter (On his underbody and the flowers), and feathers. I used the copper "leaves" as a branch for him to perch.
I sprayed the felt flowers with adhesive, sprinkled with glitter, then sprayed with a bit of walnut ink to "dirty" it up a bit. (This glitter obsession is gettin' a bit out of hand! LOL!)
Well, I am home today with my boy. On my way into the city, with Cort,to get her H1N1 vaccine, I got a call from Kyle's school saying he didn't feel good,and that he had a headache. It was already 2:30 (He gets out of school at 3), and I was pretty far away. So being the good mother I am, told the nurse he will have to stick out the 1/2 an hour and walk home. She didn't sound to thrilled with me. In the meantime, my hubby, who also wasn't feeling well came home a bit early and picked up our messages at home. He went to the school and got Kyle. Now you have to know Kyle.....he is a bit of a drama king. He is constantly complaining of headaches, toothaches, foot aches, spleen aches, stomach aches, ANY ache! So sometimes we aren't really sure if this was a ploy to get out of school or what. (You know the story of the Little Boy Who Cried Wolf right? My husband openly expressed this to our son. Brian continued his lecture into the car about how he had to go to CCD since he had missed last week due to a headache, when suddenly.......Kyle threw up. Yep.....inside the car. Then again outside of the car on our front steps. Ick. So needless to say.......we now believed he really was sick! On top of that, he headed to bed around 7 PM and is still currently sleeping while I am typing this. 12 hours of sleep.....this is unheard of for my lil' night owl!
