A Meljen's Sketch Challenge

Good morning everyone! It has been a week so far! Thank goodness it is Thursday! Let's see... so all the bosses are gone and that is a good thing, because work has been pretty quiet. Monday the van driver's side window got stuck about a quarter of the way down. It wouldn't budge up or down... just stuck! AND! the next day it was suppose to rain. How lucky could that be! LOL I called up the other girls and told them I was taking Tuesday to see if I could get it fixed. It is now rolled up, but I don't want to spend the $200+ to get it fixed!

Monday night Bailey came downstairs to ask me if she felt hot. She didn't, but I told her take her temp and it was 87.2. Tuesday morning she came down and she did feel hot. We took her temp again and now it was 102. So, Bailey stayed home sick, I stayed home to run errands and see about the van. I did get a lot done. We managed to get to the bank, mail off the paperwork for Kevin's Adjustment of Status and get down to the bike shop to cancel the warranty thing that we had on it. At least it was a pretty productive day. I took Bailey's temp in the evening and it was back up to 102, which means that she stayed home on Wednesday too. Kevin was having major mouth pain from an extraction last week on top of everything else.

Wednesday was another stay home day for Bailey. When she woke up her temp was 100.5 and when I got home from work she looked better. Her voice is a bit hoarse, but she is definitely on the mend. Kevin went to the dentist in the morning so they could fix up his mouth... which only made him hurt more. He ended up with dry socket in the extraction site and some bone working out of his gum that they ground down... YUCK! All he wanted was milkshakes LOL I was so tired when I got home from work!!

So, here we are on Thursday... I love Thursday! It is my week to share in the new challenge over at Meljen's and this week we have a wonderful sketch!
And here is what I came up with using this sketch for reference:

I love this image from Meljen's .. It is Remember Always Cross. The cross on the inside is a rubber stamp from . I also added a scripture on the inside. My other supplies were: Club Scrap papers, Copic, Frosted Lace - Stickles, Gold - Liquid Pearls, cork corners and ribbon buckle, American Crafts Glitter Ribbon - White and a charm from my stash.
