A Rough Day

Oh, our poor sick Baby Bear!  We were out at the mall before Gymboree and he slipped into a super fussy mood in a hurry.  I hurried him straight home and kept a close eye on him.  Just a couple of hours later, he had a fever of 103.  Thankfully it was only viral and he was much better the next day.

Products used:  Patterned papers:  Making Memories (glitter dots), Creative Memories (background);  Stickers:  Creative Memories;  Tools:  Cricut Sugar & Spice cartridge (x-ray);  Silhouette with Berlin Sans FB Demi font (title);  Sketch:  Page Maps
