Real Life | Chic Tags

The month of April was a hard one for my girlie with 3 trips to the Emergency Room in 3 weeks. I kept all the bracelets they give you when you check in, and of course being a scrapbooker, I had to use them on a layout. My own custom (very expensive ha ha!) embellishments.
 
The papers  and real embellishments are all part of the new Cloud 9 and Let's Go collections from Chic Tags. The "proof we were here" die cut was so perfect to use to point to her arm in a sling!
 
I added in a few sequins from my stash and a little hand stitching along with the cute die cuts, and then listed each "ailment" she was treated for ;)
 
All in all, Gracie has come through this like a trooper. She's hardly complained at all about wearing a cast, and even when the medicine for the earache gave her horrible hives, she took it all in stride. We go back to the doctor on Monday to see if she can have her cast removed. She loves that the cast is hot pink, but she will be happy to see it go!
 
Supplies Used: paper and embellishments - Chic Tags, cardstock, sequins, thread

Just found your website via the scrap gals podcast. LOVE your work. I have a question about the white circles on your layout. Are those a silhouette cut file? And if so could you possibly tell me which one? Thanks so much!
