Half bad & half good!

That about summed up my day! The half bad bit, was the horrid migraine that I had this morning, it was the worst one I have had in a LONG time. I was so ill I couldn't go to my dear friend Kelly's Baby Shower (which broke my heart!), I couldn't see properly and I had to take more pain killers than I usually do for migraines. And so this afternoon I was a bit of a space cadet. I am feeling better though, I just have a headache now.

The good bit was that by the afternoon, when hubby had to take his Mum up to the hospital for her daily visit, I sat at my computer (well I rationalised that it helped the nausea to focus on the screen LOL) and popped over to Scrap Artist to see how the Fiesta was going. I downloaded the fantastic Fiesta Kit giveaway and the colours are just brilliant! While I haven't ever been to Mexico, so I won't be able to scrap it but those fresh, bold colours can be used for any type of LO. While I was there, I checked out the challenges and decided to take part in the Pinata Contest. You had to complete four tasks to be eligible to get all four pieces of the Pinata prize and I thought "why not".

Here are the two LO's that I did for the Pinata pieces -

Hot Tamale!

Admittedly they aren't my best work (what can I say, I had a migraine LOL) but they were fun and they helped take my mind of my throbbing head. The other two tasks were a Festive avatar & a Mexican recipe card - they are a bit too small to show to advantage here sorry, but if you are dying of curiosity here is my scrap artist gallery.

Anyway, I must go to bed because the old head is beginning to pound again *sigh!* - ta ta for now, my friends and family.

Amanda, you poor chicken with the migraine, I hope all is well now. I think your layouts are terrific. The fireman one, woah! That is hot.
