Good News... Bad News...

Well let's start with the bad news. Matteo was up all night last night crying and needing Mommy. He had a fever (101.2) when I put him down... gave him some medicine... but no help! He was up every hour or two. At 5:30 his temperature was up to 102.8... So I called in and took him to the doctor. Of course, we waited for 50 minutes! Yes, 50! Let me tell you this is no fun with a sick baby! Not our normal pediatrician, she doesn't work on Thursdays! But she is absolutely the best... and I mean the BEST! I love her! Anyway... oh yes, he always gets sick on Wednesday Night! Turns out he has a raging ear infection! This is #3 for us... and his temperature is now 103.7! So Grandpa came over to watch him, while I went to go get his medicine. He is finally sleeping, so instead of sleeping myself, I am blogging!
The good news is I finally have pictures of my part of the circle journal that I am doing. I signed on with 7 other very talented girls at Studio Calico. This is my first one ever! (Typically don't do mini's... actually, I have never done one on my own!) I am very excited to send it off and see what will be coming my way. So... here are some pics of mine... if you don't want to see most of it... don't look... Spoiler Alert!
This is the cover... The theme of this journal is IF...

You really can't tell, but I love the way these letters turned out. They are naked chipboard monograms from Basic Grey. I painted them, added black glitter to them, and topped them off with Glossy Accents. They are so shiny and sparkly!
First page with a little introduction...

This would be the "Rules" Really they are just guidelines! Everyone has the power to do whatever they love.
This is where everyone in the circle will "sign in" and show off their beautiful face, so we all know what that "talent" looks like.
And this is my entry...
This is an up close of Daddy's side...
And one of mine!
Hope you like it! Can't wait to see what everyone else sends me! I do have a few other layouts that I have been working on, but I can't show them to you yet! I will keep you posted though.
Thanks for looking... have a great day!

Like seriously, this is the most gorgeous thing ever. I'm jealous. Lucky group. Have fun, have fun with this project. I hope you share the whole book upon completion.

Regarding your Matteo...honey, those ear infections are nasty buggers. Both of mine went through that and my daughter had to get tubes. I hope he gets to feeling 100% better soon.
