Welcome to a very cold day in Ohio!! This is our very first cold Sunday of the year. The first taste of fall. I even had to turn my furnace on for the first time this year. I did have a very interesting week though. My son woke up on Tuesday morning with real bad pains in his side of his stomach. So I take him to the ER and they immediately put him into a room which never happens when you go to our ER. The doctor come right in and says they think it's appendix but there is also a bad stomach flu going around or he may have some infection. They did blood work first and in about fifteen minutes they came back with his results and a surgeon. He had to have his appendix taken out. They said they would get him in in about two to three hours. Next thing I know they came in and took him straight to the operating room. They did a laparoscopic surgery and he was out of the operating room in about an hour. He went to recovery and then to another recovery room where we could finally see him. We left at six in the morning and was home by two in the afternoon. Talk about quick. I had to stay with him for 24 hours and I thought my 21 year old son turn 10. He still hurts today and they put him off work until November 1st since he is in construction and they want to make sure he healed before he goes back. I was really shocked that I finished my project this week. Two late nights helped me finish.
Fall. What a great them to have at this time of year. Melonheadz Illustrations is our sponsor this week for our Fall challenge. We were lucky and was given a set to work with this week. The set is called Fall and there are 11 images that came with this set. We were suppose to use as many images from this set as possible. I ended up using five of the images to make a Scrapbooking Layout this week. We are able to choose from a card or any other project. As I already said, I made a layout for this project. I used pictures of my grandson also on this layout. The pictures were to cute not to use. Before I show you the layout, let me tell you what Melonheadz Illustrations is giving to the winner this week.

Here is the layout that I called "Happy Fall" with my cute little grandson Hayden.
I hope you like it. See how the pictures fit right in. Last year the neighbors raked all their leaves in a pile on the road and my grandson just had to go over and see the  pile. He got there and just jumped in. It was so cute. Oh, I made the hay bails that the pumpkins are sitting on. Took a little bit of time but was well worth it. Here are the products that I used to make this.
Cardstock -- Close To My Heart
Paper -- DCWV & Colorbok
Pictures --Grandson Hayden
Colored Pencils
Colored Markers

Your grandson is adorable! He is perfect for this layout and you did such a great job on this, too. Love the papers you used and those bales of hay, too. Great work! Thank you!

You have had a tough week! I am so glad that your son is recovering nicely now. Thank goodness they gave him off until Nov. 1! He really needs to be healed well because of his job. I wish him a great and complete recovery.
