I did a page!!

Yes, I's shocking, but I actually scrapbooked - for me!  I joined the Crowned Contest at Scrapdango to get me moving on something that wasn't for work.  The challenge for this week was to have at least one woman in the layout (me), have it be mostly B&W as well as having some bling and something that went all the way across the page.  This came together quite quickly with some of the "Be Mine" Echo Park papers and a few extras.  Had fun playing with some stamping and ribbon pleating (on the left) as well.  You probably can't tell, but the edges of the whole page are distressed with black ink as well!

This layout is just a documentation of the weight loss journey I've been on.  I started in July last year and have lost 58lbs since.  I'm not done, but I'm "learning to love" (the title of the layout) myself and am feeling sooooo much better!  Just need to work on getting to that 60lb mark now!

Thanks for popping in and I love to hear from you when you do!

You look great, I haven't seen you in so long I won't recognize you when I do finally get back in to shop.

Good job on the weight loss. I did it a few years back and I know it's not easy.
