Crazy Few weeks ~ BBTB Challenge

Sorry I've been MIA~ my entire family came down with a mystery "flu type bug" that has lingered in my house over the past few weeks. We are just now starting to get totally back to normal and as I type my husband just told me he is starting to feel sick again - I am praying it's just something he ate...ugh I am so over having to take care of sickies :(

Anyway, so much has happened over the past few weeks beyond just being sick...Halloween (I need to share some photos), getting yet more snow (so soon in the year - the kids have already missed a day due to snow! CRAZY) I turned the big 34 last week! It really wasn't that bad - I think next year at 35 it might hit me harder....I remember when it was fun to turn a year older, I wonder why that changes?

Yes ~ it's true...I did go see Wicked for my birthday! I was spoiled and was able to attend the show last Sunday night (the "eve" of my birthday) with my husband! If you haven't seen this show - it's true it's a must see! It's an amazing show mixed with sadness, humor, and a total spin that has you leaving thinking...hmmm she really did get a bad rap. I think I am almost convinced now that the wicked witch of the west was really just misunderstood ;)

Anyway, this week over at BBTB we were challenged to use the *upper case D cut* which is a sweet little bird from the storybook cartridge. I really do love this cartridge - it has so many awesome cuts and I need to use it more often! So.... Here's what I came up with this week (it felt good to craft something!):

I hope you all have a super week! Be sure to stop by my blog on Wednesday for my free SCAL cutting file!
