Back to School!

So I finally have an update on Kaylee!  She was basically not able to wake up for more than a few minutes at a time until today, when she was awake for a while.  She is still on a ventilator and feeding tube, and they are going to start weaning her off tomorrow.  She is angry, they said, upset.  She obviously can't speak, but she can nod and shake her head and blink and squeeze hands.  They are worried about blood clots in her legs, so they put some things on her feet and she keeps kicking them off.  To me, that's good - you keep fighting, princess.  She has 150 staples from her pelvis to her breastbone.  She has a cut/scar on her forehead and "the worst concussion you can have without having brain damage" was how it was put to Cass. I had sent her a message through the hospital's web site and her boyfriend thanked Cass and said we could send things for her to put on her walls, so we're going to send her cards tomorrow.  Thank you all for keeping her in your thoughts and prayers - she's got a long road ahead, 3 months before she can even try to stand... but she'll get there.  She's young and healthy and strong and she's got a lot of support.  All the same, please do continue to keep her in your thoughts & prayers.  Thanks!

I have lots of "Back to School" stuff to share today!  First up is my reminder post for:

I used Voodoo Woman from Delicious Doodles - hee hee - I thought this was cute and I just couldn't resist pairing it with this quote to fit the "back to school" theme.  LOL

Next up - we have a new challenge for you at:

Our sponsor this week is The Doodle Garden, head on over to see the rest of the DT's fabulous creations and to link up!

We also have a new challenge for you at:

We are being sponsored by Softpencil Studios for our final challenge.  Sadly, Jenn is closing the challenge blog down for now - but I know she'll (we'll!) be back!  ;)  I colored my images with Prismacolor markers, pencils, and mineral spirits.  DP is from Authentique and some from my scraps.  I also used some text stickers and ribbon from my scraps.

And just so you can see the comparison in size between my card and ATC (both using images from The Doodle Garden):

And last for today is our reminder post at:

I used Back 2 School Bird - Book Bag from Just Some Lines, colored with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits.  I used a combination of DP's - buttons & ribbon are from SU!

PHEW - that's a LOT of school-related stuff.  I think I need a nap now.  ;)  Hope you're having a nice weekend.  Peace.


  1. Love all of your school themed ATC's could make a mini-accordian album with all of these (you know how I like to multi-purpose!) How cool, all of them.

    It's good news to hear about Cass' friend and even though the road ahead is long, she'll get there!
