Life's Rules

Life certainly has not been dull in our household this past week, thus my blogging break! Our 9 year old Yellow Lab went in to have a tumor removed, then back again later in the week, as his stitches were coming out, so they added some staples and he has to wear the "cone" until they are removed. Then on Saturday our oldest was complaining of pains near his appendix. After trips to the doctor and hospital we were sent home only to return on Sunday to the ER, he ended up in surgery and was released late Monday, and is recovering nicely!
Inspired the this weeks Mojo Monday Sketch, I used pattern papers are from the My Minds Eye on the Bright Side Two collection, along with Life's Rules from Verses.  The quote is stamped in Ranger Coffee Archival on a scrap of the MME paper, to embellish I added some Prima Doodle Duex Charm Rose Paper Flowers and Walnut Brown Vintage Seam Binding.

Ink - Ranger Coffee Archival
Card Stock - Bermuda Breeze, Espresso
Other - My Minds Eye On the Bright Side Two, Dimensionals, Glue Dots, Prima Doodle Duex Charm Rose Paper Flowers, Walnut Brown Vintage Seam Binding, Spellbinders Circle Dies, Big Shot
