Gosh, darn it!

I think I need a lock on my mouth or something. Here's the run down for the week:
  • I worked out 4 out of 7 days.
  • I wrote down everything I ate (yes, even the candy I ate during the last-minute Friday afternoon meeting).
  • I totally pigged out at dinner last night and paid for it this morning.
If I compare last week to the week before that one, I actually did better. I WENT to the gym. BUT... there's the but... I wasn't so great with the eating part. Here's to trying a little harder this week.

Moving on...

My first layout of the year! My word for 2011:



A canvas I did for the Studio Calico 1/3/11 challenge:


A close up:
Supplies: (for the layout and the canvas) Studio Calico Metropolitan, Park Bench, Busy Sidewalks and Mass Transit, SC stamps: weekday, months, butterflies, and coffee stain, Ultra Thick Emobssing Enamel (UTEE), JBS inks in cough syrup and spiced tin, punches: EK Success large circle border, real estate sign and star chain edger; Martha Stewart: double loops and classic butterfly and Claudine Helmuth Sable Brown paint.

The embossing ink was tinted PINK and it didn't vanish. OY! I could have done one more layer of UTEE, but I was tired.

Last, but definitely not least, a layout of our girls' plus one boy night out:

If you find a place that sells those locks, let me know :)
Love your pages, especially how you used the calendar grid page with the 'enjoy today' sticker. I'm so far behind on using my kits - thanks for the inspo!

wow!! Your layouts are amazing!! LOVE them! I don't do so good on the eating either. That is my struggle. I work out all the time, but need to do better in the eating area!
