Words You Never Want to Hear

As a Mom there are some phrases we never want to hear, 
"Mom, guess what I flushed down the toilet?"
"Is the dog supposed to be eating that"
"How come your arm is bent like that"
you know,,,,, those little phrases that strike terror in your heart. 
As your kids get older, the potential for trouble grows let me tell you. 
Nothing can stop a mother's heart like the words 
"Mom,,,,, I've had a wreck,,,,
the ambulance is on the way"
That is the phone call I got last week from my DD. 
She is fine, just a little beat up from the airbag.
But I don't think I will ever be the same.
I have used Bazzill cardstock, Prima, Offray, Recollections, Faber-Castrell, 
Jenny Bowlin paint, stickles, some random bling from my stash and
pearlescent inks that I dripped randomly. 
I used my Cricut to cut the large grid and the swirly mat behind the photos.

I am linking this up over at Once Upon A Sketch where the challenge was to journal
two events that had happened to you in the last week. 
I only got the one on here, this really consumed the whole week! 
Mom was a wreck too.

  9. OMG, I can so relate! I received that same phone call a few years ago, our youngest ds was 17, he wrecked his truck, totalled it, but thankfully wasn't hurt. I couldn't function for days, worried that something was wrong that I didn't know about, or they couldn't find! I slept beside him in the floor!! LOL! I did the same thing, I scrapped a page about it too! Glad your dd is okay too! Love the pretty accents you chose for this! Great page for the challenge, and thank you for joining us at OUAS!
