The week that was...and some scrap :D

Hi peeps,
Wow what a week we have had in our household this week. Some good and some not so good :( On wenesday, we had a little drama, due to my stupidness. I put Savannah-Rose to sleep on my bed, and thought she'd be safe enough to leave peacefully on my bed. She was in a deep sleep so I thought nope she wont roll over this time, but just to be sure I stacked loads of pillows up beside her anyway. Well I was out of the room for just over 5 minutes when all of a sudden I heard this all mighty scream, ran in to find Savannah had done exactly what I hoped she wouldnt, she was lying on the floor on her stomach, I quickly picked her up and she seemed fine until I walked out of the room to check her over some more, as I was holding her against my forearm, the colour started to dissapear from her face, her eyes began to roll back in her head and she passed out. I quickly blew on her face and called her name and poked her and she came back to me, but again went back into unconsiousness, so again I did the exact same to bring her back to me while running to the phone to ring the ambulance. The whole time I was on the phone she kept going in and out of unconsiousness. The ambos arrived and we were taken to the hopsital where we remained for 4 hours observation, Thanfully she got the all clear, they think it might of just been the initial shock of falling from a deep sleep. So now as the saying goes "you gotta learn the hard way" and yup thats exactly whats happened, I just feel so terrible that something like this had to happen before I learned. So now I will no longer let her sleep on my bed unattended. So I just want to say a huge thanks to everyone that thinks I'm not a terrible mother even though I feel so horrible. Thanks lys for being there and comforting me.
Anyways on anouther note, I did some Scrappin :D I actually did 2 layouts in 1 day, so not like me, my average atm is 1 layout a week LOL. Never seem to find any time to do scrappin now a days. So these layouts are for nothing in particular but for me, my own pleasure. This year I have turned down some DT positions to just focus on my family and myself. I hope you like. The photoshoot layout, I had sooo much fun creating, and as you can probably tell I went sewing crazyyy!! Although I did have some cranky moments at the sewing machine lol.

Now this layout I am just in love with, I am totally in love with this range of paper atm, its the October Afternoon Farm fresh range, its all just so natural, just love it!! I also created my labour layout with this range too. And how cute are these pinwheels?? LOL you wont beleive this but Until last night I never actually knew how to make a pinwheel, how sad is that!! Hope you like :D

Also last week I have had a little bit of luck on my side, In one of my previous posts I mentioned about a blog candy over at scrapfarm, well to my suprise my name was picked out, wahooo :D So can not wait to receive that in the post :D Also over at Born2create this month we participated in a Valentines Swap. So everyone had to make a card and Chris W would pick her favourite, then whoever won would be sent a Valentines ATC from the rest of the particapants. I am just so appreciative, because my ATC was picked, so now everyday I am receiving beautiful ATC's from all the talented ladies from Born2create. Thanks Chris W for picking me, thankyou also to the girls for participating, was seriously alot of fun. Anyhoos I will put a pic Up of the terrific cards when I receive them all :D
Well this post is seriously too long, so I better end it here. Take care awesome people. Much love Belynda AKA lyn xxx

Bel - it wont make you feel any better - but Lachlan also passes out.....its usually a protective response to a shock ......he is 10 now but can still do it....

No your not a bad mother lyn, I think most mothers experienced that sometime in their lives. I remember Hannah 1st fall when she was 7mons old. i thought the same and never thought that will happen after putting several pillows beside her. I went to the restroom for less than 5mins and there she was crying on the floor.

But thank God nothing really bad happened to Savannah.

Love love your layouts and she's growing up so fast

So glad you and Savannah are OK! What a scare. It wasn't as though you deliberately tried to harm her, Lyn. You thought she was safe. Gotta remember that.

What gorgeous layouts you have made! I love all the stitching and pinwheels - must ad a pinwheel or two to something in the near future. I forgot all about them. Love the photos as well :)

Have a good week, hon. XX
