Today should be the day Maddie comes home. Hurrah!😀 When the surgeon saw her Tuesday there was still a small hole in her bladder, although everything else looked healthy. The decision was made to give her 2 more healing days since she was just about, but not 100%, completely healed, so hopefully today everything will check out and she comes home. I will know more later this morning when they call.
Today I have another page to share for Elle's challenge at Art Journal Journey. This month you can work with any combinations of Books, Cats and Tea. This time my page is about Book Week at school.
I had a collection of vintage book images in an old scrapbooking kit. It was time to use them, and these images worked perfectly for Elle’s challenge. I know the Train Your Dog image isn't quite cohesive with cats, but I had to add it. smile
I tried to stencil some old writing onto the background, but I chose the wrong paint by mistake so it ended up more globby. I still like it, and so I added my images once it had dried. To finish off the page I took some chipboard dots that were actually the waste of some different chipboard images. I glued them down and then painted them in.
In other news, as usual, garden produce is all coming in at the same time. The other day I picked the following:
And my new batch of spinach and kale are growing great. The lettuce is a bit slow, but it's coming along. I'm sure this week's heat isn't doing it any good.
And here's a guy who will be as excited as we are to welcome Maddie home.
That's all for me today. I hope you're week is going well.
