Sapporo, Part 6: Polar Bears

Hey, y'all!  Long time no see!  My moving-induced blog hiatus ended up being much longer than anticipated.  Long story short, two days after we got to North Carolina, the hubs and the babe both got the flu, and my gallbladder viciously attacked me and I spent two days in the hospital waiting to have it surgically removed.  Then I got the flu too.  I strongly recommend everyone avoid the contraction of any malady which causes coughing directly after having abdominal surgery.  Pro tip, that.  After the surgery, we had the grandparents here for a long time because I wasn't allowed to lift more than 15 pounds, and Ryan weighs 23...and he just put my shoe in the trash can.  But anyway, my dad left on Saturday and now it's just me and Ryan and the doggos and maybe things will start getting back to normal.

To that end, Scrappy Monday!  I thought I'd finish with the Sapporo pictures in February but hey, better late than never.

I have no idea how I ended up with only FOUR pictures on this layout.  Lots more pics here.  The Old Olive patterned paper has itty bitty snowflakes on it, and I paired that with Baja Breeze and Blackberry Bliss and I love how this color combo turned out.

There it is:  Baja, Blackberry, Olive, and a bit of So Saffron and Whisper White thrown in there (I think the polar bears are actually more yellowy in person than white).  .31021 111100.31


Ryan just typed you a message.  Apparently baby talk is best written in number form.  Anyway, I've got my new craft room all set up and ready to go...I actually made a couple of China pages in there already, so hopefully this week we can start to settle into a routine and I'll get back to card making and more scrapping.  When I'm not trying to keep Ryan from chasing Sadie, our grumpy old girl dog.  Ryan is fascinated by her and she is not feeling it.

Cheers, y'all!

Oh, those colors are PERFECT for this layout. I really like it. And it's good the polar bears are more yellow because if they were WHITE, you couldn't see them against that white background. Very nice laout!

And glad to see you are adding to the conversation, Ryan!
