All About Eve - New Beginnings.

The first AAE challenge for 2008, is New Beginnings & the title of my layout is New Me.
Papers are all Basic grey, Lily Kate. My title is made from MM Cheeky Shimmer Stickers & Scenic Route alphabet stencils, Redmond white. I used the monogram piece of the M so that I could stamp it using my Honeysuckle stamp by Crafty Individuals (see posts below for details & other things made using this stamp) in my fav colours Versamagic chalk Tealeaves & Eggplant. I also stamped the Design Objective floral scroll in the top corner with the same colours. Pink ribbon is Papermania & the ribbon slide is MM. I also used a small portion of a green scroll & one word from the craft Indivduals stamp, Words. This was used on the Arty Girlz card several posts down. I had fun making this layout as its the first I've done since Christmas.
The text reads, This year I need to focus on a few changes. I want to be happy & to achieve this I need to lose weight & craft more...

The BG lily Kate works very well for you grrrl !

Well I hope you will scrap as you feel up to it ! I haven't decided if I am going on the CT/ DT trial yet again . I have been out of that loop for quite a while now & missing nothing too much I dont think . LOL .

Good to hear you will break out , break away & try out new techniques for this year ! Way to go ! Seems like a few others a doing just that too ! Yes I certainly missed that posting where you mentioned that ! I didnt think of that - cutting down on some challenges to do others & new styles . I haven't done much altered art or mini books for a while now .

Looking forward to seeing more new creations from you come what may !

hugs, Pearl

Are those chipboard alpha's scenic route, if so I have just ordered some! They look like them!
I am guessing that I will be doing this layout in 9 months time....I cannot stop scoffing it is the only thing that makes me feel better!!! Oh well if I cannot enjoy food and not worry when I am preg, then when can I.

Hey, Paula! Sooo sorry it's been ages, I know. Or does it just feel that way?

Been super busy creating stuff like a madman. I figure one of the easiest ways to fulfill my DT requirements is to submit to actual calls and contests. Easy? Ha! This coming from a publishing virgin.

Anyhoo, how are you?? I miss you so much. Miss visiting your blog too. Sometimes, I feel so obsessed with scrapbooking and cardmaking and visiting your blog is always a breath of fresh air of new ideas.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog and thanks for the note. Hope to catch you again sometime soon.

*hugs*
Nina <--- buried under layouts and cards *hehe*

Good to see your new creation, Paula, and it's great to have some goals for 2008. I need to have a weight shedding goal too. Maybe I'll get round to that! LoL!

Take care and have a great day.

You know that even with blood sugar issues you could do slimming world as it is not classed as a diet but as healthy eating for life. If you inform the consultant she would be able to guide you thru.
take care ...
