Rolling in the Deep...

LOVE that song!!!! Love Adele! Love her amazing and powerful! Listening to this song as I am typing this, figured it would make for a perfect title.

I always say I am going to get better about blogging. Then, time manages to get the best of me and I never sit down to catch up. Anyone have any advice/suggestions on how to discipline yourself to sit down once a week and do it? I'm open to just about anything! Help me!!!

Let's see...OH! I have been going to the gym religiously for the past 7 weeks. I've been doing Zumba 7 days a week and Body Pump 5 days. Have also started working with a trainer on weight training. The good news....I am 22 pounds less of a woman than when I started! I have dropped a jean size already! Whoop! I am loving it. I seem to feel so much better...have more energy, not as tired, not as depressed, etc! I still have a ways to go to be where I want to be, but it is a good start!

On to the scrappy stuff!!!! The first layout is Nicholas being his silly self. He was 5 in this picture. He put his underwear on his head and said he was an astronaut.

Again...sorry it is sideways. Still have NO idea why it does this or how to fix it! Anyway...I used Bo Bunny's "Blast Off" line for this one (thanks Jill). Almost seems like these papers were made just for my picture!

This next layout is for "FAVE THINGS" DT. Our prompt was to scrap one of our favorite thing about Spring. I chose dyeing Easter eggs.

Nich is showing off his favorite egg that he painted. Love how his hands are all dyed, too! Used Echo Park's "Springtime" papers on this one. Lots of glimmer mist and chalk. I tried to use crackle paint on the corrugated letters to look like cracked eggs, but it didn't work out so well :(
Please come over and join our challenge at "FAVE THINGS"...we'd love to have you!!! .

Guess that's about all for now...have cleaning to do today. Blech! Until next time...
