MCT Scrapping The Little Things

Good morning! I know I have been a little MIA lately but with good reason. We all have been under the weather with cold/allergies. I am usually a night owl, but I have been in bed  before 10( if not earlier than that) for the past 2 weeks! Just when I thought we had a handle on things, my son caught a little bug, that he can't seem to shake! Hoping today is the day we say good-bye to all this ~ it's Spring and we haven't really enjoyed it yet!

Anyway today it "Scrapping The Little Things" with Emma, over at My Creative Time, and the design team! Today is "Nurse's Day" ( HUGE shout out to ALL those wonderful people out there who REALLY do care about their patients) so we will be incorporating anything wellness/health related ~ a doctor visit, recovery, get well, working out into our PL, Smash book or scrapbook layouts. I LOVE Emma's stamps and dies for layouts!
I decided to scrap my son's first "boo boo"! He was not even 2 yet and had a mishap with my dad's outside wheelchair! Poor hubs was in a little panic when he called me to tell me this! He also was feeling a tad guilty ~ not like he let him do this on purpose or anything ~ accidents happen! Lets just say this day is something I never want to repeat but grateful it wasn't anything too serious!
I will list all my materials below the picture. I also would like to reminding everyone that Miss Glora is hosting the Designer Challenge this time around! Click here for all the details. I hope to actually play along too! Fingers crossed we get back to normal real soon!
