I got to spend time creating in my scrap room yesterday, which was definitely a stress reliever. I finished a handful of projects, but I can’t share the majority of them until later. I do, however, have a couple of layouts that I get to post today. Yeehaw! Are you ready to see them!?
First up, I got my hands on some of the latest from Prima! I cut out the pocket, and I placed some notes and photos inside. I thought it would be a great way to store extra photos and journaling onto a page.
What do ya think? Cute, right?!
My second layout was all about using my Cricut. I cut up all of the flowers and the “Make a Wish” title with the Sweet Treats cartridge. Doesn’t it all come together with Imaginisce‘s Birthday Bash line?! …and I even used my irock to add some bling.
On another note, I’m such a dork because I still get excited to see my work in printed publications, hehe. Here are a couple that I wanted to share:
In the September 2010 issue, Scrapbook Trends shared two of my layouts. …so if you get your hands on this copy, make sure to take a peek at my work.
I also have a layout published in the current issue of Scrapbooking and Beyond Magazine. In case you’re wondering, it’s the Fall 2010 issue. There are a ton of other awesome projects in there, so make sure to pick up your copy!
In regards to my personal challenge, the first couple of days trying to adjust to this new lifestyle was tough, but I’m still alive, haha! Besides, in the long run, it’ll be good for my overall health. I’ve been working out everyday and eating healthier, so I’m still on track. *pat on my back for being good* With all of your wonderful support and encouragement, I honestly think I’ll be able to hit my goal on schedule. I’ll keep everyone up to date on my progress or regression.
Are any of you currently challenging yourself? If so, I want to hear all about it.
