Beautiful You

Hi there! I'm switching gears to a stamped card today.


This beautiful stamp is from Unity's March 2015 Kit of the Month. I water-colored the image using my Aqua Brush and Ink Pads. Sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches, and color scheme from Colour Me.

Thanks for stopping by to see what I'm up to in my craft room today.

Scrapbook Pages from Week 20

Hi, everyone! I have a couple of scrapbook pages to show you from Week 20. I used some Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby) filler cards that Kati gave me for Mother's Day. I love, love, love these cards. I like the colors and the overall look & feel of them. (I gotta get me some more!)

For this first page, I let the photos do most of the talking. I did print out a status that Tom posted to Facebook one day that week. (I had to highlight the part about me in red because I love to hear / read / see how much he loves me.)

I was very excited to get a large American Flag to proudly wave on our dock, and we've been wanting some lights for the dock too, so Tom hung those up. It's so pretty at night.


Yes, our doggies were frog hunting in that one picture. There are so many new creatures here at the lake house that they didn't get to play with where we lived before. It's rather hard to get them to come inside sometimes. They have too much to explore and get into. LOL


That's it! Thanks for stopping by. I'll see you next time!

Weight Watchers Wednesday


It's that time of the week where we talk WEIGHT WATCHERS.


How 'bout that Before and Current photo? Interesting, huh? I've been on Weight Watchers for 16 weeks now. As of last week I had lost 23 pounds.  As of this week, make that -24.6 pounds. What has made me successful? (I do believe I am a success story in the making.) It's no big secret.

From the beginning I've asked God to help me. I have allowed myself to enjoy my favorite foods, but have limited the portion size, not made snacking on chocolate the norm, and have counted everything staying within my daily and weekly points. The week's I don't use a lot of the extra weekly points are the weeks I lose the most weight. The weeks I gain exercise points, but don't cash them in on extra food, are the weeks I lose the most weight. The more active I am during the week, the more I smile on my weigh-in day.

I am NOT an exercise enthusiast. So by active I just mean more moving around like running errands, parking further away, doing housework, walking up and down the stairs more in the house.... just normal stuff - but more of it. I also stand to eat most of the time. That's not a big deal, but standing does take more effort than sitting, and it all adds up.

Want to join me in Weight Watchers? Just click this link (Weight Watchers), and find out more.


See you next week!

Scrapbook Pages from Week 19

I had a LOT of photos and scrapbook pages for Week 19, but I'm just going to show you two of them today.


  • Cricut Design Space using Indie Days Font for "Week 19" cut
  • Filler cards and background papers all from my Mother's Day bag of Project Life goodies from Kati
  • First two photos on the top row are from that Friday night. We stayed out until 4am on the dock. Wayne and Gene were smoking the pork for the graduation party the next day. There were 10 of us all hanging out laughing and telling stories and some of the men were also getting some fishing in. It was a GREAT night! I can't believe we all stayed up that long. Wayne & Gene didn't go to bed until after 8am. And I'm not sure Wayne actually ever went to bed. I think he tried to cat nap a little, but nothing more than that.
  • Bonnie on the second row is giving the thumbs up at the doctor's office.
  • Bottom row shows the babies enjoying Bonnie's bed. So spoiled. LOL  And the flowers are from Wayne's parents to us girls (Kati, Bonnie, & I). Keri also gave me some flowers too. (It was Mother's Day weekend as well as graduation weekend.)



I have 3 pages of graduation photos. Here's one of them. So proud of Kati. The outfit laid out is what I wore that day. I had some fun shopping for new clothes. It was very nice to be able to buy a smaller size. (Yay Weight Watchers!)  Love Kati's thumbs up photo!


Thanks for stopping by today! See you tomorrow.

I Miss You Card & Winner!

Before I show you my card for today, the WINNER of the Cricut Scoring Tool is....

Marilyn of Who 'Dat Scrapper

Congratulations! Please email me (66cricketatgmaildotcom) or Private Message me on Facebook with your USA mailing address by the end of the week. Enjoy!

Do you enjoy Clean & Simple cards? Because that's what I have to show you today.


  • Make-It-Now Cricut Design Space card
  • All papers from scrap box
I wish Cricut Design Space would always list where the cuts and fonts are from. I love this font. It says I've purchased it, but I have no idea what cart it's on. I was going to change the message to something else, but couldn't figure out how to edit their text, so I thought I'd just add text, but couldn't figure out what font this was. Okay, that was a long sentence. LOL

Enjoy your day!
:) Janis
