Fun In The Sun-October Afternoon and Paper Issues Sketch

Let's talk allergies for a minute?  Do you have them?  You don't want them, trust me!  I have never really had allergies until this year.  The pollen counts were really high and we have had a ton of rain. Mix that combo together and apparently it is not a good thing for me. 

I had a horrible episode about 1.5 months ago, where I had to call to get an inhaler to get over my cough.  After about a week of the inhaler that took care of everything.  Fast forward to this past Wednesday.  Raging headache in the middle of the afternoon.  By the time I got off work, ran a couple of errands and got home, my throat was not feeling the best.  I popped some nighttime cold meds.  I was awake half the night with the drainage (gross I know!).  I have drank 3 cups of coffee and 3 cups of peppermint tea (both hot) and it's 90 degrees with heat index of almost 100.  Plus ice water.  I have narrowed it down to the mold count being high from all the rain.  Yippee, not!

Ok, on to my project.  I did the sketch over at Paper Issues, just because I didn't want to think about anything. That turned into a bigger thinking project than I care to admit. I am horrible at geometry and this layout proved it all over again!  I played with the new October Afternoon Summertime collection and a few things from my stash.   If you want to see the sketch and play along, you can find it HERE.  You have until the end of the month, I think! 


Supplies: Pattern Paper, Stickers, Journaling Tag, Lace Trim-October Afternoon; Buttons-Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker; Doily-Doodlebug Design; Crochet Doily-Prima; Graph paper bag-Unknown; Acrylic Speech Bubble-Unknown; Adhesive-ThermOWeb

I really wanted to add more to this layout, but just couldn't figure out how to do it and make it look good. So I just played a little on the journaling tag.

Some of the stuff I have had in my stash for awhile.  Might at well get them on a page also!

Ok that's it, I am outta here for tonight.  I am hitting the bed early and hopefully getting something that resembles sleep before the morning!  Have a great Friday!!!
