Flu Update!

Hi and thanks for stopping by the RES-Q-Challenge! Our resident Internist is here with some news about the H1N1 Virus...

I know everyone has been going batty following all the news regarding the H1Ni virus this winter. We actually had quite a few kids come down with it at my daughter's elementary school already! Some easy helpful tips for staying healthy this year are:


2. Cover your mouth and nose when you sneeze or cough, and throw the tissue away

3. Take a Multi-Vitamin

4. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth to avoid getting infected by germs

5. Avoid close contact with sick people

6. If you do get sick consider staying home form work or school if possible

7. Did I mention washing your hands with SOAP AND WATER OFTEN?

I hope you all stay healthy for the rest of this season!

For today's challenge...let's break it down to a limited supplies challenge!

A) Use acetate somehow, somewhere on your card or project

B) Try out a NEW (to you) technique or revive an old favorite (one you loved and used all the time and haven't tried in a while)

C) and because it is nicknamed the "Swine" flu you must use pink somewhere on your card to represent the piggy!

Here is my sample:

I used a "new to me" technique....Acetate and Tissue Paper. OMG I am in love with this one! I made about 4 others using this technique so don't be surprised if you see them everyone in my gallery! You can find the instructions and awesome video by Beate HERE on SCS's resources page.

Here is a close up so you can see al the glittery awesome-ness!

Thanks so much for stopping in today! I am leaving for vacation this Thursday but there will be a fun new challenge up on Monday January 25th!
