A New Hip = A New Life

I've had these pictures for awhile from when my husband had his hip replaced.  I knew I wanted to document it as his life was pretty miserable for many years.  His hip was bone on bone.  I can't imagine how he survived the pain.  I didn't share all of the pages with you because most folks don't want to see the incision and staples.  It was pretty ugly.

I'd like to enter this at Frosted Designs.  The challenge was to use vellum, acrylic or transparency.  I've used several smaller transparencies.  On the cover of the album is a butterfly, around the hospital bed is a green vine frame and in the last pic is a transparency with brackets.  Had lots of fun on the blog hop.  I only wish Blogger had been more cooperative as I couldn't leave comments on everyone's pics.  Everyone had fab creations!

Time to wind down and get ready to start another week at work.  Have a great one everybody!

What a great idea to document this part of his life. Hope he's much better ... my friend had her hip replaced for much the same problem and she's been like a new woman since she got it done. Mind you, we did tease her relentlessly about being the youngest OAP in town LOL!

What a great book, It may not be a fun memory but I believe we need to scrap the good the bad and the ugly, and this turned out beautiful.

btw...Congratulations you are the winner of my RAK. When you have a minute send me an email with your mailing information pleas.

Great mini album, and I like your use of several smaller trasparent pieces! I hope you'll join us again at Frosted Designs!

Oh honey I love this!
A great thing to have kept (like a diary) and in years to come you can look through it and remember!

Hi Carrie, what a lovely keepsake you have made for your hubby, even though the subject wasn't a happy one. I hope and pray that he is totally recovered and not in any more pain. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris
