8.6 Pounds Down and a Few layouts

February's getting away from me, and I haven't posted since January. It's been a busy past few weeks for me. Doing Weight Watchers has been a little time consuming, cooking and cutting up vegetables. No more carry-out dinners and ordering lunches at work. But it's paying off. I've lost 8.6 pounds in three weeks. I was hoping it would come off a little faster because I have so much to lose, but I'll take it!

I got the most exciting phone call a couple of nights ago. Leah Fung called me and said Scrapbooks etc. wants to publish one of my pages in thier June issue! I just can't believe it--and won't believe it until I see it actually in print.

Here are a few pages I've done in the past couple of weeks. These three, for Color Combos Galore. Janet is doing a Design Team search right now, so check out the site for details. This is such a fun challenge. Some of my favorite layouts have made using colors from this challenge.










Here's one I made for How Much Is Too Much?. Paula challenged us to use products from 19 different manufacturers:






And here's one for my book of silly family photos that I made for Sketch This!

Hey Debbi, congrats on your loss - AWESOME!!!! For some reason it has never occured to me to take a peek at all the DT's blog's from CCG. Where have I been all this time? Should have done it long ago, am getting heaps of inspirational ideas. Be back to visit again soon, Tiff :o)

Hi Deb, I just got the email and have had a big cry, I honestly can't believe that it has affected me so much, I must have wanted it soooo bad. It must have been such a great feeling to have gotten the acceptance last year. Hopefully one day I will be good enough to experience the elation, Tiff :o)
