This is a scrapbook page that I entered for On Assignment Nov 09 for Scrapbook Etc magazine. I think it turned out great !!! I hope they think so. I made each sunflower by hand with punches and Slice machine. Each sunflower was punched with the 1 inch scollop punch and cut between each pedal, stems were crimmped and cut and the long stems were cut with Slice machine. I added layers, ribbon and page corners. The corners were punched with Making Memories punch.

Yesterday was my Birthday and I wanted to tell what Derrick done for me. I picked him up at his grandmother's house last night and he had me a card a note in the card. The note was telling me how much he loved me and I was the best Mama. He also wrote me a poem that was so pretty. This little boy is so sweet and it made me cry.

YAY.....the weekend is here. It has been a very long and hard week. I am still in so much pain with my foot and not walking very well. I am so ready for the pain to go away. I guess if it does not go away I will have to go and get a shot :( I really do not want to do that. I don't know how long I can take this pain and walking on my tip toes.
I am going to try to relax and enjoy the weekend....but I am sure that there will be something to always !!!!

Last night I woke up with foot pain and it was PAIN !!!! I tried to get up but I could not even stand up. I was hurting very bad !!! This morning I found out that I have a heel spur. I am suppose to put ice on it in the morning and heat at night. I am still in lots of pain tonight. I have to hop on my other foot or walk on my toes.
It has been a hard day :( I am hoping that it gets better soon.
