Anyhoo, here are the last few layouts I have completed, not very many lately, I had Emma on my own all last weekend and most of my free evening time was spent in creating a mini 'Thank You' book to give to nursery. Now I have done it I want to keep it! I'll post it later when I have taken all the photos.
Last week we did a LO at Craft Den using some lovely floral and butterfly papers. I didn't see who they were by which is not like me. Most likely they are Bo Bunny or Prima, I'll have to check tomorrow. You can see that I have smothered the flowers with stickles. Here is Emma chasing bubbles in the cottage garden during our holiday to Scotland in May.
The next LO I did a while back and it's taken me ages to photograph it. I used Prima papers and cut out a frame which is raised on foam pads
The butterflies are cut from a coordinating paper and the flowers are from the Tim Holtz tattered florals die. I've added stickles n ribbon.
I joined Slimming World two weeks ago - I have been before a couple of years ago and was doing OK, but kind of went off track when my friend Caroline died, and just never bothered with it again. Of course, I have piled on even more since, and although I have been told it doesn't show by a few people (they are being extremely kind), I was quickly reaching the stage that my full term pregnancy weight was over the horizon , minus the baby!! I used to be the skinny one in size 8 dresses, how things have changed! I didn't have a great week this week, but I have lost 3lb so far over two weeks so I am on my way! A few of my Craft Den friends joined a while back and are making the 1.5-2 stone marker at the moment, which is fantastic and they look great. I think I need a photo of the thin me on the kitchen cupboard door to spur me on! Anyway as part of my motivation I have added a weight loss ticker to my blog. It might help me anyway!
