Got spikes!

Last Wednesday my youngest son broke his left arm while using his trick bike, and it was actually on flat asphalt. I was visiting my mum, who is in hospital with a nasty ankel fracture, when my husband called and told he would take the kid to the ER to check out the arm. I couldn't help bursting out laughing, as this was the absolute cherry on top: challenges have lined up for the last few months, and this one was so welcome. NOT.

Luckily this fracture was clean and neat, but the kid had to go through a minor surgery to have some spikes put temporarely - they will be taken out in for weeks.

Patterned papers & cut outs: Chic Tags' February kit. Arrows: Chic Tags. Alphas: Jillibean Soup (blue), Sassafras Lass (green). Woode stars: Studio Calico. Wood camera: Freckled Fawn

The kid is now doing fine, even with a plaster cast from above the elbove and down. I'm surprised to see how much he still csn do on his own - getting the socks on in the morning is one of the few chores he cannot do himslef :-)

Some close ups:

When I saw this fun sketch at Scrap365, I immidiately was inspired to create: I loved all the layers and the amount of white space:

The DT has come up with some lovely examples for you, so please visit the Scrap365 blog to see them :-)

Have a fabolous week!

Oh dear, your poor son, my daughter broke her arm last year so I know it's no fun for them! I love your page, especially the cheeky 'got spikes' title and 'oh snap' camera wood veneer, they made me smile! Thanks so much for joining in the scrap365 challenge! x
