21 Day Challenge

So after getting sick, I took Friday, Saturday, & Sunday off. Got back into the swing of things yesterday with a 35 minute workout at the gym in the morning, and then an hour (+ warmup) of volleyball last night (and it was much more intense then Beach Volleyball was!). Got up again this morning, and squeezed in a half hour at the gym. So this brings me up to Day 7 (if you jump over my sick days)!

Sicker then a dog (well not really, but sick) so the 21 day challenge is on hold (and I was doing so good!!!), the backup plan is a little difficult when you are so stuffed up its difficult to breathe, so just taking it easy until I'm feeling a little bit better (and trying to avoid another lung infection!).

Did this layout using Angel's Duo kit (see previous post for links) with Project B. So sorry that summer is over, and winter is on its way :( This layout is for my family reunion album that I am madly trying to finish today (whether it will happen or not, I don't know).
Have a great day!

Designs By Angel

I realized today that I hadn't posted much about Designs By Angel's two new kits, "Let's Pretend" and her first Duo with Scrapable Designer, Project B titled "In A Boys Pockets". Hopefully you enjoy these layouts. Pick either kit up at Pretty Scrappy
To see layouts for these two kits (unfortunately, I've already sent mine to be printed and backed up my hard drive) go to Angel's blog here and here.

Day 5

I made it! 40 minutes this morning. I can't believe its Day 5 already!
On to Day 6!

Day 4

Managed to squeeze in my 30 minutes at the gym this morning. Starting to get the violent cold/flu thingy that is going around the office, but made it there. Hopefully, I'll still feel well enough in the morning to go. Unless I get the actual flu, I do have a backup plan. I'll do 10 minutes of exercies (min.) 3 times if the cold thingy gets worse. Hopefully the backup plan won't be necessary!

Day 2

Day 2, and I made it to the gym this morning, despite being tired after being awaken repeatedly by a clingy cat and a cranky other half that share the bed with me. But I got a full 40 minutes in!!! :) Now on to Day 3....

2 more layouts today. Both use Designs by Angel's new kit In A Boys Pocket. Brushes by KPertit for Designer Digitals & MWise for Designer Digitals.
Just for the record, the kit by Angel is so versatile that I am still using it even though my assignment is over! Pick up the kit at Pretty Scrappy asap!

21 Day Challenge

Over at Rhonna Farrer's blog she is hosting the 21 day challenge. The idea is that it takes 21 days to form a new habit. This is something I need desparately. I used to be pretty good at working out all the time, but I hit a rut last year, and its been increasingly more difficult to get with it (and I have way less energy!). It is really important that I work out, not only because of weight, but for other health reasons, in particular my back. I can always tell when I haven't been working out because I am in pain! So, this is day 1 of my 21 day challenge. I want to do some physical activity every day for at least 1/2 an hour. This morning I went to the gym for an hour (finally getting some use out of that membership again!). Not something I can normally do, but 1/2 an hour is attainable! And I figure if I make myself post my activity on my blog, then I'm also held responsible by all that read this blog. So here marks Day 1!

A few layouts from this afternoon.....

I've been on a roll!!! And surprisingly, I would have more done, but I've had computer issues (too small a hard drive, and getting old!). All papers by Tia Bennet for 2Peas, and templates from Manda Girl.
All the football pics are done, now on to the rest (but probably not today)!

Just a few layouts from this morning....

Football layout supplies: Template by me (based on a layout I saw on Scrapbooks Etc. by Amy Light), all papers by Tia Bennet for 2Peas.
Lunch layout supplies: Template by Manda Girl; Paper by MTerasawa for Designer Digitals; Frame on big photo by House of 3

Cover Page

OK, so I haven't quite finished my family reunion album, but with the Beautiful Evidence course (which I've changed up the topic from me to my Family Reunion) at its completion, our last topic was the album covers. This time I decided to forgo the templates Jessica provided (which were beautiful) all because I wanted to fill in the word FAMILY with our group shots. I really like the outcome, and I'm glad I decided to step out of the box.
Supplies: Apple Blossom Dots Paper by Tia Bennett for 2Peas; Brushes by House of 3 (for Jessica's frameups course)
Now I only have about 20 more pages to complete -- Shutterfly's going to be making big bucks off me when I get this one printed!

New Layouts (again!)

Sorry I can't do a two page spread side by side. My computer seems to be running out of memory and now squeaks like a mouse (its about 5 years old, so I guess I understand that its probably just about toast!). Papers by MTerasawa for Designer Digitals, Rhonna Farrar for 2 Peas, & KPertit for Designer Digitals.
I should also mention that all the layouts recently use templates from Jessica Sprague's Beautiful Evidence Class (I keep forgetting that as I've just been cutting and pasting my supply list in from the class gallery when I post!).
Love the class, getting a TON done for my family reunion album (I've been modifying the templates for it slightly). It's been a great motivator to get the album done. I'm thinking my parents will end up with a copy for Christmas!

Labour Day Weekend

Got back from camping yesterday (great weather & company!), and from celebrating our (very excited) god daughters birthday. I'm now getting caught up on my Jessica Sprague Course (Beautiful Evidence). Here's a layout I started the other day and finished up today. Only have layouts 9-15 to get caught up on now!!! Haha! This one has papers from Designs by Angel Kindred Creations May 09 Collab (Burgundy, Flower, & Stripe) & Ballroom Blitz (Beige); Sage paper made by recolouring Ballroom Blitz paper.
Edited to include the additional 2 pages for the Grange using the same kits. Sorry for the reverse order, but too busy to change them!
