Rose Filled Life

Yesterday when I looked at the color combination for the day I wasn't sure of the outcome, but now that is together I am really liking it. The color combination is Rose Red, Certainly Celery and Pumpkin Pie. For good measure I threw in a little Basic Gray and Whisper White.

What I want to draw your attention to is the medallion made with my new punch, and the best part about it is that it is FREE! That is if you own Stampin' Up!'s scallop circle punch. Dannie Graves posted a tutorial on her blog and I tried it out for the very first time yesterday and my medallion is a result of that. The things people come up with to use Stampin' Up! products in a new way just amazed me. Now why couldn't I have thought of that?

Today is probably going to be a very unproductive day. Evan had a mysterious fever that appeared last week on Monday night. It lasted until Wednesday night and all weekend he was fine with maybe just a low grade fever. Yesterday after his nap it was 104 and I called the pedi. I didn't know why it was coming back since he isn't presenting any other symptoms. One look at his throat and they said it was most likely strep. So we head home with antibiotics and are trying to make him better. He was very fussy all night and I feel like I got next to no sleep. But now he seems to be getting worse. His fever is 104.5 and he can't keep the Motrin in his stomach and can't keep the antibiotics down either. I'm waiting for the pedi to open so I can call and find out what to do for him. Cross your fingers he gets well soon. I hate when my kids are sick. So if you don't see me around posting you know I'm cuddling on the couch with my baby instead of stamping. At least I got my new stamps mounted last night so if he happens to take a nap I can play with new stuff.


PS. Can you tell we got absolutely no sun yesterday? I'm sorry my photo is so dark. I think I convinced my husband to get me better lighting for Christmas though!
