Two November Challenges: PCC & DCWV

     PaperCrafter's Corner's Magazine Monday and DCWV Stack-a-holic challenges are my favorites.  Both have wonderful inspiration.  I saw the long thin photo mats on DCWV's sketch and long thin ladies on the Harper's Bazaar magazine cover.  I have just the photos I've been waiting to scrap that fits "long thin!"  But not the cute kids or party themes this time. . . before and after x-rays!
     Let me explain my title.  I do believe in angels, but doubt they are tiny little things that can inhabit our bodies.  Still, when I saw the before x-ray, it sure looked like a little angel holding my deformed spine together, right where I have had (They took it completely out!) the triangular shaped vertebra.  Apparently it was very unstable.  I know the Lord was looking out for me and kept it from slipping all these years, and He gave me a grin when I saw the picture, a probable artifact, I'm sure.
    There was so much story I wanted to record, I decided to put it on paper strips rather than using designer paper.  The words were cut on the Cricut.  The paper is from DCWV's Confetti and Metallic stacks.  I thought those stars were the perfect celestial backdrop for my "angel."  Can you see it?  :o)  
     As much as I'm still hurting 8 months out, I am very thankful to God and for modern medicine that was able to fix this before it gave way and paralyzed me!  I "think" I'd do it again.
