5 Designer Layout-"Swine Flew"

My 19 year old son was a camp counselor this summer in Branson, MO when he contracted swine flu. I flew from Chicago to Springfield, MO to be with him after he was discharged from the ER, and we got to spend the next 5 days together in isolation in a hotel room until he was well enough for us to drive home. It was a little scary for a while, but I'll admit I liked nursing him back to health and having him all to myself for 5 days! (How 'bout that? I even used this weeks theme!)

 

I finally used my Wacom tablet for the first time on this LO. It's kind of hard! :) I'll need some practice!

 

My designers were:

Mandy Steward- Bursting

Erica Hite- Dear Diary, Enchanted

Angie Briggs- JustBU, JustBMessy

Marnie Adams- NearManger_BrushSet

Thao Cosgrove- Art Journal, HavingHope

Fonts: Jump Start,Trash Hand,Shirley

Great layout! I'm sure he would have rather been camping. Karen in Missouri where some camps were closed down this summer because of swine flu.

OMG Sue, this is an excellent LO!! Love everything about it, and that title speaks volumes! As tough as it was to go through this you can look back at what was precious to you and laugh at the swine! I've always wondered about using the tablet. Now I know it will be another challenge. LOL Love your LO and the fact that your son is well!

I love this layout! It is always nice to make something nice out of an icky situation. Good job with the tablet. I have been trying to use mine more, but find it difficult to get my handwriting to look nice. How did you manage it?

Clever layout, Susie, although your son may not appreciate your posting that less than flattering photo of him. ;) I'm so glad he's better now. Great job with the title and arrangement. Fun layout!
