Broken Bones...........

I have a little boy who thinks he can fly! :-)
Keanu figured out how to climb the half walls in the house. On Tues he slipped of the top and fell on his head with a big "Crack". Whilst crying vomiting and in a lot of pain the Doc said to take him home, he's fine, just a bit of shock. Unhappy with the answer because I heard something crack and he was inconsolable I took him for a 2nd opinion to the hospital. They X-rayed his head, shoulders and CT Scanned him. Broken collarbone and concusion!!! He lapsed in and out of sleep so he was kept in and doped up on pain killers. Our other son Broke his collarbone at school 4 mths earlier and the reaction baby was giving was similiar, so Im glad I trusted my instincts, ignored the original doc and took him to the hospital. His arm is taped with a wide tape to his body, but despite the discomfort and alot of yellow bruising He's still quite chirpy. I just have to be more gentle giving him big squishy cuddles for a while, and did I mention the difficulty gently manouvering him in and out of the car seat for the school run every morning. Thank goodness its now the weekend. LOL
 I received my new Tim Holtz Leaf cutting dies in the mail and and was so excited to try them out on this page. I think they look cool. The dies cut through Fabric so I am going to try cutting some velvet leaves next. The Birdbath is Handrawn, cut and inked by me on thick Card. The gorgeous buttons are by PURPLE PUMPKIN. The butterflies were punched with a MARTHA STEWART Punch.
I had a collection of beautiful Boy papers and Die cuts from the BASIC GREY Mellow Series and I love how they all came together. I think the tree is gorgeous. It gave the Page a more Wintery Autumn look..... and its certainly that here. Blustery, cold and raining. Im surprised I managed to take such good photos on my poxy point and click on an overcast day...See! Miracles do happen LOL
Thank you for looking and I hope you find something that inspires you :-)
