Blog Candy Winner and My News

Sorry I didn't get to this sooner. My doctors have been using a low grade form of Chemo (Remicaid) to try and kill off my immune system to get the Behcet's under control. It is basically a trial and error experimental treatment. And it has been fought with problems. The latest is that on Tuesday while driving my shoulders suddenly froze in position and made it impossible for me to use my arms and hands. Within an hour my hips froze and an hour later my knees.  Extremely painful. When we got home my shoulders were bright red and warm. Long story short is that I am in terrible pain and can not lift my hands above my waist. The keyboard is sitting on my lap. They think the Remicaid dose was not high enough and it was too far between infusions. So I have another infusion on Monday but in the meantime life is painful. Holding  a pair of scissors is excruciating.

So I haven't been able to do a whole on the computer. But here is the winner of  last week's hop:)
True Random Number GeneratorMin:1 Max 88  Result 7 and the winner is Rhonda Emery who said "Cute Layout" Congratulations! Rhonda would you please contact me at with address and I will get this right out?

And my exciting news:) My Trash Your Layout  "Grandpa and Me" won top 3 at Shopping Our Stash

I made Top 3 at SOS - badge

I am indeed honored! I love this challenge because the emphasis is use what you have. And believe me I need to.

Tomorrow Digital Darla and Lasting Memories are co-sponsoring a Hop on Digital Scrapbooking. Be sure to stop by! This is new for me, but is one of my goals for this year, so I am excited. And I will be giving away some Copics, which are perfect for digital scrapbooking:)

Have a wonderful day!

  4. Oh Elizabeth! My sister gets Remicaid infusions as well. I hope your pain gets better soon. You're in my thoughts.

    I've been meaning to ask you - I want to dabble in copics, is there a set of colors that you would suggest starting with?


Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and leave a comment! I appreciate all of my wonderful readers! Elizabeth
