This is the second page to the LO I started yesterday. I really like this sketch. I was able to finish it while my club members were putting together their Tickled Pink kits. It was a fun night! I only wish I wasn’t so exhausted. My cats kept waking me up all night and morning; now it is slightly after 10pm and I can’t function. I’m posting this and going to bed!
I’m back to the Unforgettable kit…I really am determined to use all of the paper this month! I can’t believe how much I still have left over. Anyone who says they can’t afford to scrapbook hasn’t purchased a CTMH paper pack! I decided to use the exact same sketch from the Tickled Pink kit; it’s fun to see how different a LO can look based on paper and the placement of embellishments.
After working on the 2nd 1/2 of my LO, I decided that I didn’t like how the title turned out, so I went back and made some changes to the first page. I’m much happier with it now. It says, “I am…45 pound lighter!” This page is a celebration of my accomplishment in losing weight and gaining a healtier lifestyle. The journaling is in white gel pen, so it may be difficult to read. The journaling strips say, “I am…fit!” “I am…healthy!” “I am…so happy!”
Now I’m off to spend the rest of my day doing chores, exercising, and grading essays…fun times!
I’m playing with my before and after photos and the new Tickled Pink set. I’ll finish the 2nd page with journaling strips tomorrow.
I’m so exhausted today, so I’m really glad I only had to find and trim photos plus add my journaling. Once again, I didn’t have a plan for my journaling, I simply started writing. What I discovered is that I’m thankful that the Schaub’s still own the ranch as it is the last family home from my childhood that I can still visit.
So, why am I so exhausted, you ask? I was up until nearly 1am cleaning the 3 Ps from my cats. Kit also woke us up at 3am. Apparantly, she didn’t get the memo that this is high on my list of why I DIDN’T have kids! I’m cranky when I don’t get enough sleep. Argh!
Oh, my goodness, it is so late! Neal and I went to Heaven Can Wait at OLT tonight and didn’t get home until after 11pm. Luckily, I had an old make-n-take that just needed photos. I really need to organize my photos this summer to make them easier to find. Okay…must sleep!
The irony of this LO is that the prompt dealt with finishing this project, avoiding procrastination, finishing what you start…um…it’s been almost three years since I started this project! Oh well, better late than never.
This would look a lot better had I printed the picture on photo paper, but I didn’t have time to bother with that tonight. I’m going to upload this LO and go exercise for an hour and a half while I watch the Biggest Loser finale! I hope Tara wins!
I used a photo from my day on Enterprise because September 2006 began and ended with amazing Star Trek experiences. I’ll write more about that on my final reflection LO. It feels good to finally be finishing this album!
I saw Star Trek again today at the IMAX theatre, so it is only fitting that I do another Star Trek LO from my Learn Something New Every Day project. September 2006 was a major month for me as a Star Trek fan!
I’m off to a Shakespeare workshop in Seattle so don’t have time to write much. Good news is that I’m back on track with exercising! The prompt for this LO perfectly fit my needs for today! It’s amazing how something that should have been done three years ago spoke to me so clearly today…wow!
