Reasons to be Cheerful Part 4

My fourth layout created using Wearcrafts

tells the story of the the child when she had Chicken Pox.
She was only about 4 weeks into starting nursery when she developed the spots 
and was more upset that she couldn't go for two weeks 
than she was about having itchy and annoying pimples!

The current challenge over at
is to scrap lift one of the Design Team layouts.
It was such a difficult choice but in the end I chose Anna's starry layout
which had previously been scrap lifted from Cari.

Anna had changed Cari's triangles into stars which I then turned into spots to fit in with my layout.

So, it's not the fact that the child had Chicken Pox that cheers me 
BUT the fact that we are very lucky on this island of ours 
to avoid the world's more debilitating illnesses.
Yes, we may struggle at the time to contend with Chicken Pox or Influenza 
however imagine having to cope with ebola where there is no medical help.

Don't forget that Jen and Virginia have been playing with this kit too
so make sure you stop by their blogs to see hoe they've been using Cheer.
