Hi! Come on in and look around!

I took some pics of myself because I know I have lost weight since the summer. I can tell by the way my clothes fit. This one came out the best, but it is still blurry. I have yet to figure out how my dd has managed to take all those great pics of herself!
I do work hard, at the very least, maintaining my weight. The goal is to lose a few more inches, but I do it slowly so that I am sure it stays off!
Do I look thinner? I think so!

What does that have to do with cards. Nothing. But I do have some great pics to scrap from that day!
I made the masculine card for my brother's 40th birthday. Hard to believe the little man is going to be 40 years old. I still picture this little butch haircut kid with a big little round belly at 5 years old! Cute little freckles on his nose. Fun to play with. Now he is kind of an ornery ole cuss, but what do ya do? Gotta love him anyway!
The rest of the cards were from the road trip I am on. Had to use flowers. I have these great flowers and this fabulous paper and all these cards from Self-Addressed card kit I got for a while as something different. So I went crazy. Gave them as my bunko gift last night...which I won most bunkos...5! woohoo! I was on a roll, and that was fun!

I scrapped my cats, Kibbles & Bits, looking at who knows what, but it definitely had their attention.
And I did some Christmas memorabilia from when dd and ds were around 5 and 6. I'm on a roll!

For a while, I was a member of a card kit monthly club. We got lots of cute papers, cards in all shapes and sizes and embellies. I made some cards along the way, but the other night I was compelled to just make cards until I exhausted just about every card base I had left! That was the 12. Now I do have a few more cards left to make, but they are from another kit and another company. I'm sure I'll whip them out too somewhere along the line.
These cards will be used for my Bunko gift coming up next week. Our theme is something soft. A fabric flower is soft, and so that is what I am giving in the form of these delicious cards.
I will also save some to bundle together for Christmas gifts, to whom I'm not sure yet, but I'll worry about that later. A nice ribbon and a pretty tag, and they will be good to go!

I have been playing at a scrapbook website again. They are having a little "Road Trip" for two weeks full of challenges. It has actually been very practical as far as card making goes! I made all my Thanksgiving cards and about 11 Christmas cards so far! That aside from all the layouts I have gotten done.
I have been a scrapping fool lately. I guess I am just in the mood. I made 5 layouts Friday night, 4 on Saturday, 3 yesterday and 2 today. Go, girl, go! I can't complain. I'm using current pictures AND pictures I have had matched with paper that I've been carting around to weekend crops for eons! I'm nearly done scrapping my family vacation from this summer, which is a small miracle.
I think this website has been good for me as far as giving me different ideas to get things done. It is sparking my creativity. I don't think I will win this road trip contest. And honestly, for $30 worth of scrapping supplies, it's not worth all the work it would take to win. There are 10 stops with about 4-5 challenges at each stop. I'm on stop 5 right now.
Now, do I go crop or collapse? I'm tired. I did housework all day. My kitchen is very clean, and I have dishpan hands!!!
