A template

Happy Wednesday everyone!!! I have been getting my posts done later and later in the day. I might end up being an evening poster by time I figure out how to schedule my time more wisely. I hope you are all having a wonderful week. Mine, so far not bad. I had another migraine yesterday. Surprising though, it wasn't bad but it still kept me pretty useless all day. I had a hard time keeping anything solid down. It seemed the only things I could eat were grapes (which we are now out of), pickles (which we are also out of) and m&m's combined with a wild cherry Pepsi. The caffeine in the soda and the m&m's (there were dark chocolate) help my head ease off on the pain. Today I feel a ton better minus the chest pain. I developed that yesterday morning after my 2nd trip to the bathroom. I am not sure what it is yet. Maybe indigestion/heartburn or my mom even mentioned gall bladder. Thank goodness I have an appointment with my OB next week so I can question them about it. Right now Tums is helping to ease the pain. I tell you what, I don't know if it is my older age (I will be the oldest mom in my family, mom and sisters) or it is a girl but this pregnancy and I are just not agreeing with each other. When I was pregnant with my boys it was so nice. I loved being pregnant. This one, this one is kicking my butt. Hopefully this is the only time this baby and I but heads :)

I did want to get something created today. I am so far behind on things for the month of July that I knew I needed to get started. I was just going to send my niece a card with a check in it but then I felt bad since I sent her sister something cute to put the check in. That is when I remembered some of the templates I have from PTI. I had actually planned on making the bigger version of this picnic basket for a friend who had a baby but it never happened.

This is the smaller version of the picnic basket made almost completely out of PTI supplies. I will tell you though. When making this basket make sure you have some thin two-sided tape with a backing. Like scor-pal tape or something. I tried to used glue dots and smooth them out but it was still bulky and made my edges stand out more than I would have liked but I hope my niece doesn't notice it like I do.

Thanks for stopping by!!!

This basket is adorable!! I am sure Haley will like it. I talked to her last night.
I so need to get myself busy and make one of these.
