Scrapping Everyday Life

Hello everyone.  I have to say that yesterday was not my favorite day ever... However, it did have some redeeming moments.  Yesterday was ... dun, dun, duhhhhhh... Root Canal day for me!  In the photo above I am driving home from the dentist office so truly things went as well as one could possibly wish.  

Now, let me digress for a moment... Yesterday's LOAD 513 Clue prompt was the Lead Pipe.  Really?  A Lead Pipe in my scrapping?  No, this prompt was NOT working for me!  Until... I was in the dentist chair.  I suddenly realized that I was wearing a LEAD VEST for the x-ray!!  Lead Pipe - Lead Vest... I see a common word!!!  So I whipped out my iPhone and asked the staff to document my dental experience!

Clearly this is NOT my most glamorous photo ever!  But this WAS a real life moment!  And what did I do with this real life moment? I scrapbooked it!  If nothing else, when I die my descendants will know I believed in proper dental care!

I put together a two page, three photo layout - using the LEAD prompt of the day all while documenting a real life experience!!  Not too shabby!

  So while yesterday was not my best day ever, a well timed dental appointment DID save my day as far as LOAD 513 went.  And today is the final day of LOAD 513.  I have truly enjoyed the experience!  Even yesterday's LO!! LOL.

  1. Talk about making lemonade out of lemons. This is so funny. I think I would have a difficult time coming up with a photo op for "lead" too but you pulled it ogg.

  2. Great nightmare come true...a root canal.

  3. OMGosh Susan what a great layout! I think you look beautiful even with having dental work done! You have a great smile, something I wish I had!! I love that this lead apron worked out so well for the LOAD 513 challenges! You always do a great job at thinking out of the box!! Hugs
