I entered my very first swap that Kyoko coordinated. It was SOOOO MUCH FUN. In fact, I was so excited that as soon as I entered a couple of weeks ago, I started making my tags. THANKS KYOKO.
My partner was Fran and here's what she made for me. Really, really cute. THANKS FRAN.
And this is what I sent her.

First of all, I was soooo looking forward to this long weekend and had plans to go to Island Scrapbooking for their Admission's Day Sale. All of that changed in an instant.
Yesterday, after I got home from work, I was walking on the sidewalk in front of our precious pooch, Buddy when he suddenly ran between my legs. I fell in a very awkward way and knew it was a bad fall because I heard and felt a snap. My son had to help me up and I hung onto him as I literally hopped into the house.
Since my hubby was all sweaty and stinky from mowing the lawn, my son took me to the Urgent Care Center where x-rays confirmed a "spiral fracture." I left with a "boot" to temporarily stabilize my ankle until I can get a cast put on next Monday.
My son will pick up crutches for me today so I can get around with more ease. Until then, if I need to get around the house, I'll hop and hold onto whatever I can. If there's nothing to hold, I do the "Army Crawl." I must say, I crack up laughing doing the crawl. Gives my son a good chuckle too. I'll be ready for basic training in a few weeks. LOL.
I feel so fortunate to have a great, caring, and helpful hubby (retired Paramedic) and sons.
So here's a picture of my stylish and fashionable "boot" next to my ugly, bony, dry skin leg. Hmmm, my right foot looks crooked yah and I should've put skin lotion first. Hee-hee. Oh what the heck, give everyone a good laugh. ROL.
And here's lovable, precious, playful, energetic, and innocent Buddy. I still think he's soooooo cute.
If you have a pooch, be careful if he/she is behind you. Don't want anyone to get "attacked from the rear" like me. :-)

Cutting the printed paper was a bit of a challenge. I was all smiles when it got the margins squared away. :-) :-) :-)

Last weekend we had our monthly FCE (Family and Community Education) meeting. It was my turn to bring a prize for those who made a $1.00 contribution toward the Trimble Scholarship Foundation. It something we do at every meeting. I actually made a card pouch and enclosed a few of my cards that I've posted previously along with this envelope with a gift card.
If you zoom in, you'll be able to see the rhinestones.

Oh, and I love this cute monkey stamp. I saw the set at Island Scrapbooking about a month or so ago. I knew I should've bought it then but didn't. A week later I decided to get it but it was gone. I was so happy when Michele called to let me know they came in. It was well worth the wait. As the saying goes, "You snooze, you lose." Silly me. LOL. :-)
Sorry, the picture looks a bit lopsided, probably because I wanted to show the sides of this box as well. Or maybe I'm just too tired. It's late and I think it's time to hit the sack.
Here's the view with the top lifted. You may not be able to see the clear plastic in the "window" but it's there. :-)
