Can you believe it!!

Well, well, well...Baseball is finally over. The end of season was wonderful. I was able to make the coach as COACH book out of one of those cardboard word albums. I looooooved how it turned out. Can you believe that I didn't even take a stinkin' picture!!! I will get a pic and post it once I do. Moving on....
I finished another class last week and got an A!!!!!! I WAS SOOOOO EXCITED AND COULD NOT BELIEVE IT!!!!!
I am getting ready for a vendor fair in July and would love to hear some suggestions if anyone is willing to share. I do have a ton of stuff that I could get rid of. I am going to make some brag books and such.
My weight loss is still going great!!! I am still going to the gym 6 days a week. I had the most horrible news last week. They are closing our location of Bally's next week. They at least gave us 2 weeks notice ( I say that rolling my eyes). If you are a member of Bally's BEWARE! They are starting to shut down many locations. They told me they were not willing to do anything about my 2 year contract because technically there is another location within 10 miles. Yes, true...but driving there after work and trying to juggle the boys would cost me at least another 1 1/2 of my already too short of nights each week. So I paid the $75 cancellation fee and went down the street and joined Lifetime Fitness. Where have they been all of my life?!! I know I was only able to afford and join because of the amazing deal that they are giving us Bally rejects. I am totally loving it!!! The verdict is still out on "My Melissa". We are not sure if she is staying with Ballys or not.....sniff....snifff. Life would such without her!!!! But......drumrolll....
I AM OFFICIALLY UNDER 200!!! WOOOO HOOOOO!!!!!
Granted, it may vary on some days but it is now staying under 200 with a pm/all clothes on weigh in. I AM SOOOO EXCITED!!!! I even took my bathing suit wrap off at the waterpark and have started riding the waterslides again.


So this weekend was our first official weekend off. Nothing planned. It was great! Although I pulled a muscle in my next and move like a robot to look around I actually got some stuff done.


Here goes...
I used Stampin' Up! kraft paper and Trendy Trees stamp set. The white cardstock was embossed using a Cuttlebug embossing folder on my Big Shot. The contrasting green is Bazzil dark green. I should have made this on Earth Day. I am loving the Kraft paper lately.

The next one is made using a stamp that I found at The Great American Scrapbook Convention that was in Arlington, Texas. The stamp is from Heartfelt Creations. I bought quite a few of their stamps and really like how they have turned out so far. Here is a daisy-ish stamp using some scrap paper and nesties. Inside the card says Happy Birthday. I used Copic markers to color the image.
The last card that I made today is from Unity Stamp Company. A few months back when I went on my shopping spree I bought the cutest set called "Cuter than Most". The color didn't come out as bright in the picture as in real life. This stamp company has awesome monthly specials and weekly specials on Monday and Wednesday.
Thanks for listening and allowing me to cram all the weeks I have missed blogging and put them into one enormous one. I hope to be able to stay on track for a while now.
Have a great week!!!
