LEO is done - Bring on Construction Challenge!

I am sad that LEO is done - I had so much fun with the challenges and participants. It was so rewarding to get motivated to create - but the real gift was getting to know some wonderful ladies a little better as we created together. I am often amazed at this hobby as all of the participants are so genuine of heart!
Good bye July - hello August and Carmen's Construction challenge - that's right - I am still on an every other day creating binge!! Come join us here! Construction Season Challenge
Here is the layout I posted for August 5-6:
I used the goodies from the August Work in Progress kit and add-ons - of course if you know me - you know I added other little bits that were hanging around!

Back update: Still hurting - Insurance denied the MRI so I went to urgent care yeaterday - Dr prescribed - you got it - an MRi so we are trying again - It is scheduled for Monday - waiting to see what the Ins says. Still hurting, but the Dr. prescribed a pain pill. He needs the MRI to see if I have a floating bone in my disk - no idea what that is but it sounds scary! They did x-rays - I have 2 degenerated disks, a bone spur and a boatload of arthritis surrounding the bad disks and pelvic bone. Yikes! I am too youg for arthritis!! Think good thoughts for me. Jamie - I am trying to teach Roxy to get the ice pack from teh freezer, but she is not cooperating! Silly pug!

Wow. Your LO is incredible. I love how there are so many wonderful things for my eye to settle on and that little camera is so cute.

Sorry to hear about your back. I suffer a degenerative bone disease in my spine and it makes life pretty miserable at times. I hope the docs get things worked out for you soon.

I have just been working with those same papers and I love what you did here!!! Love all the details!!! Hope you feel better soon!

That is GORGEOUS, Lisa!

And have you tried physical therapy for your back? I had a disk apparently out of whack and PT got it worked back in. Still aches (especially after lifting the puppy!) but it's soooo much better. GOOD LUCK!
