Scrap for Help and SURGERY

First of all I want to say I may not be back here for a little while 
as my darling husband, Baden is going into hospital on the 7th Dec
to have surgery ... a hip replacement ..
and I want to be by his side as he recovers. 
lots of rehabilitation ahead for him..
so please say a prayer for him and a wish for a speedy recovery
thanks a million xoxox

is all about including recycled items in a project ..
this month I used a recycled envelope 
I lined it with paper and popped a couple of tags inside 
the kraft tag is also recycled ..
the heart,  flourish and title are from 

this photo was taken on Ellas 5th birthday, 2008 and I 
felt these soft pinky/caramel colors went beautifully together
with white and kraft .
the white embossed cardstock is from Bella ... 

and leaving me some blog love .
reading all these wonderful words makes my day ..
thankyou !!!

I will be back when ever I can ..
I'll be helping Baden with his recovery and I'll keep you all posted on his progress  ..xoxo
