hi dee hoo!

not much going on here...been playing out back with the boys a lot this week...so not a lot of inside or computer time.

We got the results back from Hayden's tests...and he has Epstein-Barr virus, which is named after the scientists who first identified it in the mid-1960s. The virus enters the lymph nodes and attacks the lymphocytes (the white blood cells manufactured there). As the white blood cells come into contact with the virus, they change shape and multiply. At first, there are no symptoms because it takes several weeks before enough of the altered cells can accumulate to generate infection. Causes Mono and in the United States, as many as 95 percent of adults between 35 and 40 years of age have been infected. Infants become susceptible to EBV as soon as maternal protection present at birth disappears.

You get it my sharing drinks and utensils and etc...all of which I am terrible about doing with the kiddos. we share popsicles, water bottles etc. So...that is that. They said it is very common and you just let it run it's course.

No wonder we have been exhausted this last two-three weeks.

A lot of ppl have been asking me where I got the scalloped border I used in the Carousel layout (see layouts below). I made it.

If you want it...help yourself. Just remember the dos and don'ts.

I included a purple png format and one as a psd..where you can change the color of the inside...or group with a paper of your choice.

To change color...just use your magic wand...click on the grey...now go to edit>fill> and fill with color of your choice.

To group with paper...open new 12x12 page (I do this so as not to mess up the original). Drag grey border on. Now drag paper of your choice on. Click cntrl + g. Now drag black top of border on your new page. You can change that too or just merge layers.

click here to download...say hi if you do

hugs and happy scrapping!
