Hello and greetings! So...my biopsy was a no go last Friday as it was more of a meet and greet. She did say my uterine wall was slightly thicker than norm but nothing to talk about which is good. She agrees with my family doctor to have the biopsy done. I have to take some meds the night before since I never had kids. I know... TMI, but I do runneth the mouth over often so, who cares:) Do you know I texted a friend about my dilemma with dizziness etc.. and she offered to take me to my appointment and persisted even when I told her it was in Burlington (40 min away and have to take the dreaded QEW freeway). When I told her the date and time, she texted that she couldn't make it because that is when she takes her dog to the old folks home! I just couldn't believe it but should have known. She has backed out at the last minute to babysit our dog plus there have been other times where she backed out at the last minute. In each case, she volunteers but then rescinds. The one time I did ask her to bring her dog to visit my mom, she agreed happily and sounded so excited to test her dog out amidst the older people but she excused herself saying she didn't feel well.but she would love to try another time...I asked 5 times and each time there was an excuse. Writing this, I feel like a complete dolt! I have been there for her on more than one occasion but this last time hurt. OK, I bitched enough and I will say a friend at work listened to my tears and took me to my appointment. I was so deeply touched and know how blessed I am to have so many good friends.
OK now I am done my bitching and am showcasing some of my scrapbook pages for you to look at and, I hope, enjoy seeing. If you could see my craft room, you would run in the other direction...a tornado has hit it which I am now trying to clean up.
Quotes by James Stewart. Jimmy Stewart loved Africa and was very fond of the elephant.
My friend dreams of having a wrap around porch. Too bad you can't see the window quotes but check out that one window...what is wrong with that it??
Jimmy's childhood home. We walked around July 4th which was fun to do hence the scrapbook paper page but I added Canada is the land of the free too.
The Church on the left was closed...bummer. This was the church Jimmy attended any time he went home.
My favourite/top 20 Jimmy Stewart films
I am proud of the left page as I drew the Santa free hand from an image off the intro cards of the film "It's A Wonderful Life" that I looked up on the internet. Now on to Lucy!
Yup, we tried that famous commercial and I had to go all sparkly for that. My friend is on the left and I am the drunk on the right:)
The home, top left, is Lucy's birth home while the other is one she grew up in. I added all the sparkle around the flowers..my hand cramped up! It was tough squeezing out that sparkle...er..never mind.
Yup, I can be all ham. The people who own Lucy's childhood home painted the garage like her blue dress and built the BBQ just like Lucy & Ethel did.
Sorry about the glare but wanted to showcase Lucy's films...top 10
I took these 2 pictures while sitting at a restaurant in Indian, PA. I enjoyed creating the border but my fingers were blue for days.
I didn't realize (brain fart) until halfway through making this scrapbook that Lucille Ball's initials stood for our first names..cool or what!
This was fun to make but took me away from making cards which I have to get doing! By the way, my dear friend Loretta loved it and that made me happy.
