I had been forced to rest by some very nasty abdominal pains, which my GP suspected may have been caused by an ovarian cyst or something similar. I am pleased to report (following a most glamorous scan) that this was not the case, and it appears that a nerve was trapped between the walls of a torn abdominal muscle, causing some particularly uncomfortable spasms when I happened to move the wrong way. For now (touch wood) that seems to have sorted itself out, as I went for my first run/walk on Saturday morning. First bit of exercise in 10 days, and boy did I feel it later on!

Layout 2 - Pitcrew in Training. J decided he had to have a go at the tyre changing competition that The Front Store ran as part of the entertainment during the summer race meeting out at Levels. He had to stand on two drill boxes in order to be tall enough to reach!

Layout 3 - Make and Take Prima Paintables Layout, Me, age 4. For the Make and Take we were given one sheet of Prima Paintables, one sheet of Bazzill of our choice, and some Dusty Attic and other embellishments. The only condition in order to go in the draw for $80 worth of Dusty Attic product was that we had to use the Prima Paintables, in combination with any other papers/embellishments of our choosing. Jo showed us how to make cardstock flowers using a retro flower punch, a brad and some water. Seriously VERY COOL technique. I made ALL of the flowers on this layout myself! Awesome!!! I coloured the paintables paper with Distress Inks using a water pen.
And of course there are the obligatory Camp photos of us gals....

So, that is that, you're all up to date! I'm hoping to get to Zumba tomorrow night, and before I know it, it'll be Wednesday Weigh-in again. Rolls round pretty fast from week to week! For now though, I am going to watch the end of The Mentalist, and head off to bed.
