i got bit by the bug!

Ugh. I thought I could use my super mom powers and escape the sickness that's going around, but no super powers here! Now the girls in the Boos household are a little (a lot) under the weather, and the boys seem to be out of the woods. In fact, ironically, Austin seems to be the happiest of the bunch which has been so the opposite over the last few weeks. And, can I just add that I have a SUPER husband! He took care of the kids today while I basically slept the day away and shuffled around. He is one amazing man!!

Thankfully, before I got socked with the cold/flu (and possibly pink eye!), I was still able to have a lot of fun with friends on Saturday at the Scrapbook Convention. I was starting to feel a little bit sicker as the day continued on, but it was fun and exciting enough that I wasn't bothered by the scratch in my throat too much.

During the convention, I took four different classes and really enjoyed them all in their own little way. We made some fun and different projects that helped to inspire my creativity with my scrapbooking! I even won a door prize!! Free stuff is always good.

After the convention, some of us met up to do a little more scrapbooking at a local scrapbook store, and I decided to finish up a few of the pages I had started in one of my classes called Photos First instructed by Simple Scrapbooks (Creating Keepsakes). The concept for these pages were to use a lot of pictures to create a specific look. This is right along my style because I like to have a lot of pictures on my pages. Although I took the concept/idea of the class, I made these my own with picture placement and color.

Layout #1

Layout #2
(not quite finished...
I plan on putting some journaling in the blank white space you see)


Layout #3
Off to bed. Time to get a little sleep and hopefully wake up feeling much better. We have MOPS in the morning and I really don't want to miss it! Thankfully I have a great leadership team that will run my job just fine if I'm not there.

Hope you all had a great weekend and that you are staying healthy!

So fun! (The scrapbooking, not the pink eye!) I never have time to scrapbook anymore! I really miss it but it has gotten so piled up it is overwhelming and now avoid it! Love your layouts!

Umm... excuse me, but ALL us moms have superpowers! If evading getting sick is not one of yours, then you have to persist in uncovering the powers you DO have :-)
