Ribs, Nick and sweet FA

Well OUCH!!!

Went to the Chiro today but instead of having a normal adjustment it was hell on earth. It all began a few days ago when I was having trouble breathing and doing normal activities like looking over my shoulder, breathing, sitting and standing….you know, regular stuff.

It seems I have popped a couple of ribs and put my diaphram out. Nice one!! No wonder it was hurting when I breathed… in or out! When I got out of bed this morning, I thought I was dying. Never experienced such excruciating pain since childbirth. Will have to go to the GP if it doesn’t get better by next week…..hate going to the GP. Always feel rushed.

Last night I went to the ABC Radio studios. I was invited to be a panel member for a discussion group on “Raising a Child with a Disability” hosted by the wonderfully charming author Nick Earles {HERE} and 2 other Mums who were equally inspiring! We spoke for one whole hour and it should be available on the ABC Radio website {HERE} as a podcast or something like that – don’t quite get the hang of that technology….yet!

Funnily I didn’t feel uneasy even though a couple of ribs were out of kilter. Maybe it was the nerves – who knows.

And so, because of the rib thingy that I had no idea about, I haven’t been scrapping since Tuesday. I did manage to get this layout finished for Forever Always’s Random Challenge. Mine criteria was
hand stitching
NO flowers (easy), buttons (double easy) or doodling (not so easy)

Luckily I had this stuff left over from the Loretta Grayson class over a year ago that I never completed for one reason or another. The frame for the photo should have been made into an actual photo frame, and the star paper and spotty paper was alread stuck to the cardstock. Because I couldn’t doodle I decided to use some rub-ons as a sub-title across the top and finish it with sequins. I hand stitched along the sequins but you can hardly see in the scan. Also used paint instead of doodling.

Great challenge!! So I decided to punish DebbieB who won my “Spread the Lovin'” comp to complete a single page layout with 7 photos and the other 2 criteria are to use ribbon in an unconventional way (hint=Scrap Creations) and at least 3 journaling spots!! CAN’T WAIT TO SEE!!

More news to follow – the breathing is getting easier but sitting at this desk is hardly taxing LOL!!

Thanks for dropping by
