Don't Go Breakin' My......Elbow and Iowa Hawkeyes Barn Star

What a day!  Yesterday Nathan (my 13 year old) had his first junior high basketball game.  He was really excited about it!  He is also playing on a rec team, but this was his first junior high school sponsored game.  Anyway.....I couldn't go because his game time is still while I'm in school.  So...during his game he decides to go up for a block from behind, misses it and the keeps running with his arm extended in front of him.....and goes full force into the wall behind the basket.  Ouch!  He calls me after the game to tell me that he's hurt and then proceeds to put his coach on the phone.  After a long night of Nathan being in a lot of pain, elevating the arm and icing it, we decided this morning to go to the doctor to have it checked out.  We spent the entire morning at the doctor getting x-rays......to find out that he has fractured his elbow.  Ouch!!!!  From the doctor's office, we were sent to see an orthopedic specialist for a treatment plan.  They decided just to sling it for the next 6 weeks (thank God there is no surgery involved), and to start physical therapy right away.  Happy Valentine's Day to us!  :-)  I am so very thankful that it isn't as bad as it could have been. 

Today I'm posting a project that I actually made this fall before football season started.  I made yet another barn star with an Iowa Hawkeye theme.  I actually LOVE how it turned out.  I did ink the edges of the paper to give it a different look and added ribbon to the top for something different.

I think I had to Google search Iowa Hawkeye Scrapbook paper to find this particular pattern.  I know that Reminisce has a line of Iowa Hawkeye paper, as they are based out of Iowa.  I have used a lot of their papers and love them.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day.....the hubby and I are going to snuggle up on the couch and watch some GLEE.....LOVE that show!
