Stuck at home.....

That's right...I've been stuck at home....housebound with a sick little boy. Jeromel got a fever on Sunday.....poor little man...very lethargic...snoozing on the futon in the loungeroom...wanting to watch tv...but then he falls asleep before long and wakes grouchy because he missed the end of the show. We had a very restless night on sunday....it was a bit warm in the house....we tried to persist but ended up turning the air conditioner on low, we were worried about how high Jeromel's temperature was, he kept whining and grizzling in his sleep, we had alarms set for every 3 hours to check his temp...then at 5am he crawled into bed with us to sleep...and all went well ...till......he threw up....ewwwwwwwwwwwww....gross!!! DH took a day off on Monday because he was soo sleep deprived. It was good because Monday is when the taxi driver of the family pulls overtime driving the two eldest boys around...so it was really helpful having him home. On top of all this....I'm still not all that well....lurgys in the house!! So yesterday in between playing nurse, mother, comforter, chef and laundromat, I decided to do my first ever Scrapjacked challenge. Here is my jack of Megan Stephenson's layout
And.....highlight of yesterday was my OPAAT kits arriving!! Got the October and November kit! I've already finished one layout with the Nov kit!! I also got another acceptance to Scrapbooking Memories for the Boy gallery....very exciting as it is one of my favourite layouts.

Today has been better....Jeromel is getting better although he now has a slight red rash on his cheeks. I think it might just be from the fever....but just to be on the safe side, I'll keep him home again tomorrow as he's still running a slight fever...and he napped this afternoon....which is very unusual for him.

Leaving you with a few Rasberry love. I made 3 cards and a giftbox for the For Keeps ad. I totally love the little box with the big layered flower on top...and the cards are just too cute with the gorgeous Rasberry chipboards.

Gosh...has it been that long since I blogged last? Can't be....time has just flown by!!
These are the little cake boxes I made during Michelle's online class at Crop for Kids.
A boyish one using Junkitz and a girly one using Rasberry papers.
The next class that is on there is Vita's photoshop class which is fabulous! Make sure you check it out.I went to Paperific on the first day......it was a fabulous day. Firstly because I got to meet Pauline and her adorable son Joel. Pauline is the owner of Fireside crafts and we've been emailing each other for a while now and lately chatting on the phone. So it was great to meet this fabulous lady in person. We had a quick walk around Paperific and then I met up with Carolyn and we did our walk around to promote Crop for Kids. Then I went to the Rasberry stand in the Trade section and hung around for a few hours helping out and made a few pages for a mini album there. I got to catch up with lots of people there......it was soooo much fun!

After that....I got sick....maybe too much talking..maybe the crap changeable weather......maybe hayfever....so last week....I didn't do very much except rest.

Before I forget....wishing all my Muslim friends 'Selamat Hari Raya'!! It's been so long since I've been home in Brunei to celebrate Hari Raya....I miss all the yummy goodies that's available at this time of the year!

Here are a couple of layouts that I haven't shared yet. One bright busy funky and fun!And the other....very simple, linear and......simple. LOL....both done the same day. You can sooo tell I"m a Gemini....hehehe. And it was pure co-incidence that they had urban lily on them.Little plug here......
