Summer of My Success
Every day I anxiously await the Garden Girl videos on Two Peas in a Bucket. There is so much inspiration to be found on these videos and I'm blown away by the talent of these ladies. Yesterday I watched Corrie Jone's video and it really resonated with me. She does a layout once a month about herself - I think it's a wonderful concept. Not only is it therapeutic but it's also a wonderful gift to yourself - a journal without trying. Her challenge had several prompts: 1)Start with your favorite colors (Thank you, I think I will!) 2)Use arrows as an element on the layout. 3)Use fun paperclips. 4)The layout needs to be about you (that would be me.)
Since the layout had to be about me, I decided I would document my recent success in getting fit. In April, I jump-started my program with Advocare's 24 Day Challenge, joined a new, amazing workout class, and started clean eating. I truly can't believe the results! I'm sure I will do a full blog post about it soon. Gray is the consistent color in the photos I selected, so I decided to add aqua and orange (two of my favorite colors!) I pulled out a variety of arrows: stamps, wood veneer, stickers and got busy creating. The Prima Wishes and Dreams stickers from the June Cocoa Daisy kit were perfect for this layout. I just happened to have arrow paperclips in my stash - this layout was meant to be.
Today we are having a chilly, wet Fourth of July - I may make chili instead of burgers. However you're celebrating today, make it a good one!
