ER visit...new layouts...new kits....

....yesterday, I spent all day working on DT requirements for the end of the month. I finished everything up at about 3:30. I went to pick up the middle two boys from school. We came home, did homework and misc. stuff around the house. At a little before 6, I sat back down at my computer with a tall glass of sweet tea, ordered pizza online, opened up Illustrator...and then got a phone call....It was Nick (my husband, who was at an important work meeting), telling me that Steven (our 16 year old) just got hurt at his soccer game. He was hit in the chest and is coughing up blood.

I'm pretty sure that I don't remember much of what happened between hanging up the phone and getting to my son. He said that he blacked out twice, his fingers were numb..he was really a mess. As soon as we walked into the hospital, they whisked him away while I got him registered. I walked into the room and he was already hooked up to an EKG machine and the nurse was getting an IV started. His vitals were looking good and the doctor came by a little later to tell us that his EKG was good too. He was sent for an x-ray. Meanwhile, his whole soccer team showed up to the ER, even the coach. They were all really concerned. I went to the waiting room and assured them he was doing alright. They wanted to make sure he knew that they won the game. When Steve left, they were tied with the other team and going into overtime. This win means that they made it to the finals. :)

When the x-rays came back, doc said everything looked really well. It seems that he probably has a pulmonary contusion (bruised lung) and that he will have a bit of pain for a couple of days but he will be just fine. Thank God. That was wonderful news. The bad news though is that he has to sit out of the games this weekend when the tournament starts. I know that is gonna be hard on him. This is the best season his team has ever had.

Well, other than that "excitement", I've been doing my usual, working on projects and creating kits. Here are a few of my recent Garden Girl projects for Two Peas. I've been mixing it up lately, playing with both paper and digital. I really love them both! Click  the links for credits....

Journal Stamps

Hi everyone! Just wanted to make a quick post to let you know about a couple of new digital releases in my store. I released two great Journal Stamp kits. They are a fabulous tool for your journaling needs, both digital and hybrid. The kits come with png and abr files so you can have the flexibility to use them just the way you want to. :)



Here are a couple of projects by the super talented jbarksdale at Two Peas:




I just adore how she she used the stamps for both a digital and hybrid project. Isn't that invite just darling?!
