Specialized Hosting Sites

A lot of crafters use specialized hosting sites that not all of us have access to. We just wanted to let you know that if we don't comment, it's because we don't have access - but we see your work here at LM and appreciate your taking the time to link up and show off your style!!

    A little story behind this cute layout. My nephew's 7th birthday is on the 18th, but because they'll be away on holidays, they had his b-day party with his friends yesterday and then family today. Well, my sister called last night and told me Hayden had broke his arm during his party. Apparently he was quite upset about messing up his birthday party and didn't even get to open presents. My brother in law took him to the hospital where they had to put him under just a little to reset the arm and put a temp cast on there. He goes tmw for a proper cast. They left the house about 3:30 and didn't get back till about 9:30. Poor little guy! He fell off the slide and landed on his arm. So, I got to work on a little something for him and came up with this layout. My sister can add the pic and the journalling. I'll give it to him today when we see him.

    Don't forget, you only have one more week to enter our current challenge and have a chance to win some awesome candy! Come on out and play!
