Anything Goes at Papertake Weekly

Good afternoon my lovely crafty friends.

Hope you had a better weekend than I did :o(

I spent 4 hours in A&E on Sunday having my ankle examined and X-rayed.
It had been healing well since I went over on it last Monday playing rounders - the swelling had gone right down and wasn't too painful.
Then on Sunday I had a bath and must have twisted my foot funny and when I got out of the bath it cracked and came up like a balloon and so painful - I couldn't even weight bear on it - so off we went to A&E.
The good news is it isn't broken - just badly sprained and ligament damage!!! 
Very bizarrely it was almost back to normal by yesterday - the swelling has almost gone completely again and I can walk on it again - thank goodness!!!

Anyway there is some good news to report - the third dress that arrived for Aaron's surprise party was perfect and I even found the perfect shoes to match as well - let's just hope I can get into them on the night!!!!

Anyway I'm really here to share my DT make for the new challenge over at
