Birthday Bling Page for Becca Sketchy Thursdays Layout
Please see end of this post for an update & more photos!
Sometimes I need a swift kick. Friday night found me in the after hours clinic looking for some antibiotics. The good news is that I already feel better. And, another plus is that what I'm taking is also used to prevent or slow anthrax. I don't HAVE anthrax....but....
Note to self, next time you feel crummy for a month, seek medical attention.
To my defense it isn't easy here. Docs don't work Fridays. It was Friday. I tried calling old doctors, new doctors, doctors from where we came from and finally resorted to the friend network and phoned a nurse who said in that no nonsense tone only a nurse has to get myself to after hours. Take a good book, play Angry Birds, and don't hurt anyone. It was good advice. Two people were not using their indoor voices when they were talking on their cell phones in a very small waiting room. If my friend Kristy was local, she totally would have stopped over and told them to mind their manners.
I did mind my manners earlier in the day when the new doc's receptionist was like, YOU ARE NOT A PATIENT OF THE DOCTOR, THEREFORE NO ONE CAN HELP YOU. (add super witchy tone here for the proper affect) I explained AGAIN that I had an appointment scheduled, but it was three weeks out and I'd probably die by then with tears in my voice. Yeah, it didn't work. She repeated the same thing again like I was really slow. I then thanked her in my nicest possible voice for being extremely helpful.
Sketchy Thursdays to jump off from.
I also tried to limit the colors I was using because I like pages like that these days. They just seem very cohesive. I tried to stick with hot pink, turquoise, white and black. I find throwing in white and black with two other colors seems to make me pretty happy these days.
I will upload more photos tomorrow showing the flowers up close and the journaling. I had made the white flower using Polyester ribbon cut into circles and wrinkled with a heat gun. I used a wider sharpie as I really wanted that black outline.
Have a great night and more tomorrow when I have some good day light for photography.

Here are some more photos. I think I also didn't mention that this pedicure was a gift to my niece for her birthday when she visited us in NY this summer. She had never gone before and her gift certificate also was enough so her Mom got to have a pedicure with her. Look at my niece queening on the chair!
