Painkiller induced creativity

I have a nasty habit of grinding my teeth. Wait, maybe it's not a habit exactly, since I do it at night and don't realize it. I have a small, comfortable bite guard that I don't wear as often as I should. What does this have to do with scrapbooking, you ask? Well, last week I split a tooth in half (for the THIRD time) and this morning, had to have it removed (when you split a tooth all the way down to the root, there's really nothing else they can do). Fortunately, my (terrific) oral surgeon was able to place an immediate implant, so at least I don't have a big old gap. Conscious sedation is truly a wonderful thing. So are prescription painkillers. While high today, I did the following two layouts - I think they turned out pretty darn good, considering! Credits under each!
