When you need specialist stitches...

Some weeks just don't go as planned, and this was one of those weeks for Brent and Soph.  I don't often record memories that aren't happy memories, but this is one of those things that I think we'll all look back on in the (not too distant) future and have a chuckle about.  Basically Brent and Soph collided while mucking about, and Soph had to seek medical treatment.   I love that they phoned me as soon as it happened to get Mum's advice... and the snapchat photo I got a little while later to reassure me that they were doing okay.

The "it's been a long week" journalling card from the May Citrus Twist Pocket Life kit fits this story perfectly.  The May kits include exclusive puffy stickers and I've used one of the teeny tiny stars to select the day of the week on the card.

To create this custom filler card I used one of the Elle's Studio cards from the Add On kit and layered pieces of one of the branding strips of 12x12 patterned papers in the same kit.  I really loved the floral pattern on another of the Elle's Studio cards, and used that to die cut this sweet bow from. Then I just adhered and stitched an ephemera piece to finish the card.

This spread was starting to feel a little busy to me by now so I kept the right page fairly clean.  I used one of the journalling cards from the PL kit, another piece of the branding strip from earlier, and one of the cut-apart pieces to finish this card.

One final little cluster and I called this week done!

Thanks for dropping by today friends, I hope your week is going well!
