Happy Memorial Day everyone! Mine hasn’t been so very happy. I brought Alexis to her therapy appointment and it’s official… the therapist says that she has severe Reactive Attachment Disorder. This isn’t something that can be treated with medication and it won’t ever go away. I’ve requested a bunch of RAD parenting books from the library to see if learning anything new will help. I’m always looking for new solutions and information. The diagnosis really explains a lot of her behavior.
I shouldn’t spend much time blogging today because everyone is off. I think we may head to the park, but before I go I have a few layouts to share!
I used the last scraps of my Classic Girl kit from Scraptastic Club to create this page. I added tons of stuff from my stash as well. The flowers are from my stash. One is cut on my Cricut. The black star pin is from a past Scraptastic Club kit. I added the Dymo Labels and the Jillibean Sprouts. I printed the vintage camera on some Red River textured paper and cut it out. It's from a digital brush set called "Vintage Cameras". I also used random letters from my stash and some Twinery twine that my friend Nancy got me. I was going for a simple look here but I think it ended up rather busy in the end. Oh well!
I created this page about my son's love of water with the June Scraptastic Club kit called "Surf's Up". I also used the add-on pack. The colors in the Fancy Pants papers really worked well with my son's bathing suit. I used Tim Holtz Distress stain on parts of the kraft cardstock.
Everything is from the kit and add on except for the kraft background and the few iRock stones I added. I used sketch 119 by Liz Chidester as the inspiration for this page.
Journaling: This was your first time on a slip 'n slide. You never did slide on your belly. You walked on it and suffered in the heat! 6/2009
This page is based on a sketch I created. It'll be available on the Ideas For Scrapbookers blog later in June. I used my “Surf’s Up” Scraptastic Club kit and add on again. I added iRock gems from my stash. I used the blue ink in the kit to ink some of the edges of my papers.
