Scrapping the little things ~ Episode 388

GOOD MORNING my creative friends & welcome to our newest segment here on my blog! It's called "Scrapping the little things"~!  This is something my design team & myself will be featuring every other Monday! As you all know, when I returned after being off, I was anxious to come back & just to start ALL OVER AGAIN w/NEW stuff on my blog!  Well, with that said, as you all know, "Project Life" & "Smashbooking" are kinda big right now! I know, I am ALWAYS the last person to start something "trendy"! lol..... We will be showcasing smashbooking/project life projects here every other Monday! I hope we will  inspire YOU to start something different too! 
You can see my very first smashbook pages I did HERE! I REALLY ENJOY "Smashbooking" because there are NO rules & you can make it as casual as you want! The reason why I wanted a smashbook is because I want to record everything in here that is IMPORTANT in my life! It is also fun to put different ideas that you want to remember, future vacations, family gatherings...etc..... I just love it!

For these to pages, I wanted to smash about when my son got his echo-cardiogram which was on the 27th of August! Let's just say that this is the day we got the BEST news that he can go on & start doing anything he wants w/o any limitations!;) As you can see in the picture, he is watching the computer screen as he is getting his echocardiogram! For the background paper, I used some wood grain paper I had in my stash & ran it through my copy machine making a copy of the list of meds that the doctors had sent him home w/in June! I thought it would make a perfect background paper (for what was going on) AND just a reminder that he is DONE w/all of this!:) 

Of course, as soon as we got the good news we all had tears of joy!;)

After we left the doctors that day, of course we spent the day SPOILING my baby since he went through sooo much! I thought it was only fitting!;) 

Supplies I used:

Here is my video showing you how I put this together!

Now onto my FABULOUS design team!:) Don't forget to click on their names to visit their blogs & see more details on their AWESOME projects!

Well, I hope you were inspired here today & I hope you will enjoy this new segment on my blog which will be every OTHER Monday!;)

Thank you sooo much for stopping by & I will see you all back here tomorrow! :) xoxo

I just want to give you a quick update! EVERYTHING came in on Friday, August 31st as scheduled! But, we ran a little behind because I had to take my Mom to the ER on Friday afternoon:(  With eveything that has happened w/my family, I don't take anything lightly! When my Mom told me that she had a sharp pain in back that went to her chest, my sister & I immediately took her to the ER! She landed up staying overnight in the hospital just so they can run lots of tests on her! THANK GOD the doctors said that she pulled a muscle in her chest! This whole situation just scared me because my cousin had these exact symptons & she did nothing about it & she landed up have a severe stroke! This is why I acted immediately & thankfully it was just a muscle pull! I'd rather be safe than sorry~!
We packaged half the stamps & dies just so we can start getting orders out! We were able to get out over 100 orders! We will continue to finish packing up the rest of the stamps & dies today! We still have lots of orders to fill! Please be patient w/us & they will ALL be out before this week is over! For everyone who placed their orders up to the 23rd of August, I included a little something extra in your packages! My Mom & I wanted to do something to show you that we appreciated your patience! Everyone got something different! Again, THANK YOU for your patience & I can't wait for all of you to get your goodies!:)
