Not a good first, but a first.
We went to McDonald's today with Tracy and her kids. We decided to eat outside in the playland area for a change. Well, that was a mistake!! Bees just started coming out of nowhere and before you know it, Macy says, very calmly, "Mommy, I think something hurts". Darn bee flew up her shorts leg and stung her right on the thigh. She handled it so well though, very brave girl I have!! No screaming or yelling. I held my drink cup on it while Tracy went to get some ice. So, we moved back inside and just went to the playground afterwards.
I think she got it before it really stung her deep. It didn't swell at all and now she doesn't even realize it's there. The first bee sting!
Nothing much more exciting today. I've been sorting through piles of magazines and just posted them on Freecycle, so hopefully someone will want a bunch of scrap mags and home/family mags! I was going to chuck them but then realized I could try Freecycling them first.
A bit tired today, I was up last night creating. I didn't go to bed until 2am and boy did I not want to get up this morning!
I found out that my Cricut Expression will cut through the new SEI velvet like buttah!! YES!!!! I bought the velvet with that intention and I am so glad that it worked!! So, the title here is cut out using Plantin Schoolbook and some SEI velvet. I also added in some new American Crafts, Dream Street and Prima paper. It's a layout about Macy's outgoing personality and how she makes friends in an instant! It's a very cute story!! There is actually about a 1/2 inch of the cream cardstock at the top of the layout too, the scanner didn't want to detect that, I guess!
Thanks for looking!! Have a great day!
