Well, I'm back in bed again. My knee is in so much pain that I cannot find a position that doesn't hurt! So, I'm in bed with ice on the top and the bottom. I am frustrated more than ever! Since I started some machine physical therapy, above and beyond the pool therapy, both of my knees are not happy campers. That makes me a not-so-happy camper! I can't sit with my knee bent at the scrap table for more than 15 minutes. That's been my scrapping limit for almost two months now. I'm just not making any headway. The doctor doesn't want to replace the knees. I don't want that either, but I'm getting to the point where the pain is eroding my spirits, too. I would be so happy with bearable pain which would allow me to just be able to DO things. I had to vent. It made me feel a bit better - sort of.

I have some LOs to share. I think I'm going to have to go back to scrapping using the bed tray. Bummer!


A Leafy Seadragon

This photo has been hiding on a disk. I finally found it after looking for it for months! This creature looks like seaweed, but has the characteristics of a sea horse. If you look closely, you can see a horse head shape on the left side. That's the critter's head! You can see the ribs in the center as well. It's legs have the "leaves." I wanted to match the PPs with the photo. I chose to place a piece of vellum over the Two Scoops PP to mute the design and not compete with the photo. Then, I tore the vellum away from the photo. I used grungeboard swirls that looked, to me, like a good match with the design on the paper.


Sweet Cheeks

This LO was fun to do. I remember that we went to Spring Mountain Ranch, outside Las Vegas, for a puppet show. DS was so happy to see Elmo and Cookie Monster! LOL The LO isn't crooked. I just took a bad photo. Everything is nice and straight. I added a strip of Prima black bling to the right side. I got to use up some of the rub ons I seem to hoard, LOL.


Cheeky Monkey

This LO has papers that I've been holding until just the right moment. I found this photo of DS taken when he was six and a T-ball "master" - NOT! He'd be digging in the dirt with a found popsicle stick as the ball would roll by just in front of him. Of course, he was oblivious to the fact that he was supposed to actually GET the ball!!! He was a team favorite after pulling stunts like that! *sigh* I also used some rub ons for the borders of a star and arrow. I have a drawer full of rub ons that I just forget to use! It's difficult to see, but I added touches of red, blue, and black glitter to the LO. The monkey in the star has also been glittered.

Thank you for stopping by. I love that you have taken time to stop and visit.

Have a good one,
