mixer 23 is up!

Good morning!

Yesterday was Quebec's national holiday called “la St-Jean Batiste” we usually don’t celebrate it other than having a day off work! Yesterday was no exception, Dave was away on business (so he had to work) and I had to finish packing up my dad’s apartment.
Just a little side note; my dad is still in the hospital and they (finally) find the reason why he started having huge amounts of pain again; his bowels are leaking on the inside and not everything is coming out in the bag so he has liquid inside his abdomen which is causing him pain. They don’t want to operate right away because they are planning to operate at the end of July for the hernia and will try to fix everything at once. I just hope they don’t do it while we are away on vacation, somebody should be there with him. And let’s hope that this time around there won’t be any complications and that the healing afterwards will be easier than the first time around. So with all that said we decided to let go of his apartment and save 700$ a month.
Since DH was gone and daycare was closed, my parents-in-law came over to stay with the kids while I went to my dad’s. All is packed up, now I just have to get the boxes out, as of last Saturday my storage unit still wasn’t available… I have to call the guy today and see what’s up?
What sucks is that today it feels like its Monday! Ok it’ll be a short week! Next week will be the same since we are off on Wednesday for Canada Day!

With all that said I had some good scrappy mail this week! Finally got my Hanna Stamps (I had loads of fun stamping last night) unfortunately the order was short 1 stamp that is paid for, the packing slip and invoice both say it was shipped but it was not in the envelope. I did write them an email but will have to wait until they return from vacation for an answer. AND I received my June kit from Love is in the Details, it was so gorgeous I just had to get it! Claude is coming over Saturday for a scrap day so guess what I’ll be playing with!!!! I can’t wait, I just love my scrap days with Claude, it’s so much fun even if I don’t get too much done because the kids do keep me busy. I’m kinda hoping for rain so I don’t feel too guilty for not going outside with them (we don’t have a fence, so I can’t just send them out in the yard) usually a scrap day for mommy is a movie day for the kids.

Last but not least yesterday was the reveal for Mixer 23! The girls really outdone themselves, like every week. This week's Mixer is a recipe formula! Your layout must include the following items;
• minimum of 4 pictures
• minimum of 4 different manufacturers
• handwritten journaling
• flowers

Here’s mine, I didn’t follow the sketch although I was planning to but when I started putting my papers down it took on a whole other direction.
I used Fancy Pants (papers and journaling tag), Pebbles Inc (papers), American Craft (buttons), Rose Moka (letters) and then i have Ranger stickles, a Magenta template and my Zig marker. I’m really loving how it turned out.
Don’t forget the deadline for the DT call is tomorrow!

thanks for stopping by!
