Preserving our memories and moments one page at a time....among the crazy chaos of three children

Okay back in the groove..I was getting nervous, thought life was going to get too busy to allow creativity. Ahh I managed though. This week I'm playing over at The Color Room. I am really digging that there's a sketch already included in the challenge and since I enjoy combining sketches w/ colors challenges, well who could ask for more? This weeks colors are shown below.
I had a tough time with the putty color and ended using a very light tan. I hoped that the pink tones would distort the color just enough to fool the eye. I used papers from Echo Park, Crate Paper and Bazzil. I used my Tim Holtz stamps and my Spellbinder dies to create the diamonds.
This layout is about my youngest DD and her experience with her first broken arm. Now many already know she has ASD (Autistic Spectrum Disorder) and that she's already had a ride on Life Flight and a trip in an ambulance when she was suffering from grand maul seizures back in the first grade. I get a little jumpy when the school nurse calls me, if you know what I mean? When the school nurse called me that day, she was distressed and apologetic.. so imagine her surprise when I was like "ONLY a broken arm? Great, I'll be right there to pick her up!"
And since I had a simalur experience when I was four.. I totally could empathize with what she had to endure. She was a brave trooper and I'm very proud of her. Anyhow, I hope you enjoyed the layout. I know I had fun working on this.
