Hello Dear Friend

Hello again! I'm here with another great sketch from Sketch~N~Scrap.  As soon as I saw this layout I knew exactly what stamp set I wanted to use.  I just recently "found" it again lol.  Hiding in my stash.  Crazy right?!

Here is the fabulous sketch...




 And this is what I came up with.  All the products are things I've had for quite some time and just never got around to using.

Supplies: cardstock, ribbon and dsp~Stampin' Up!, stamps and dies~My Favorite Things, ink~The Stamps of Life

Believe Shine

Good morning! Here is another great layout challenge for the design team over at Sketch~N~Scrap.  I was originally just going to create the layout and come up with pictures later but then I remembered I had these selfies that I've been taking during my life style change. 

I have been up and down a roller coaster with my weight over the years.  The worst being I topped out at 248 lbs.  A friend thought I was pregnant and that was the beginning of me losing the weight. I got to a comfortable weight of 155 and was happy but still having issues with bouncing back and forth to 200 and back down. 

Back in October I found a great company called 310 and have never looked back. I've not only learned that I don't need so many of the things I was putting into my body and that I LOVE to cook!! Who knew?!  I'm down now to a weight and size I never thought I'd be at, EVER and am very happy with my body, mind and spirit. 

The page I created is only half the story, I still have pictures I haven't printed that are the ending.  I'll create that at a later time and share it. 

Here is the sketch


And here is my layout
I used a lot of patterns and colors to share how good I've felt as I took these pictures.  I've never been one to want my picture taken, now I want my husband to take the camera and include me in on everything!!

Supplies: chalkboard paper pack~We Are Memory Keepers, rings, lacy trims and adventure sten
