Is it a bird? Is it a plane?

Nope - it's a scrapbook page! Wow - I can't remember the last time I made a scrapbook layout. How sad is that? Anyway, one of the Queen Kat Designs DT members challenged us to use stamps on a scrapbook page, and this is my result. I used a set called "Funky Flowers", stamped them in various shades of brown, cut them out and punched some holes to add more dimension to the flowers. I then touched them up a little with my Signo white gel pen (one of my favorite tools!). The journaling block is also a stamp - it's called Dot Journaling Block. I'm not sure if you can see it from the photo, but the "vine" that the flowers are attached to is made from braided ribbon :)

Took the kiddos to the pediatrician today - turns out that Jamie has strep throat! Glad I made the decision to get them checked out. Nattie just has a cold; she tested negative for strep and is excited to (hopefully) go back to school tomorrow. Jamie has to wait until at least Wednesday so that his antibiotics can kick in. Fingers crossed for a super-speedy recovery! Especially since it's his birthday on Wednesday!!!

I love the idea of braiding ribbons. I might have to borrow that! Sorry to hear the kids are sick. Maybe they will be well soon!

I reallly love this layout. The way you used the flowers is great. I am going to have to scrap lift that idea.
