Page Maps Card Sketch Contest

Over at the Page Maps Blog, Becky is having a card sketch contest.... so I thought I would give it a try.. I used my New SEI stamp for the ribbon-like border then inked it up. I painted the Kaiser Craft flower with shimmery ink and used SEI paper :D

THe doctor was pleased:D

I on the other hand HATE HATE HATE their scales :( based on my home scale I have lost 30 lbs. according to his about 23 :( that is a huge difference! but oh well.... and the other thing my blood pressure was HIGH! no way it has been running low until that day.. no clue what is up with that. maybe something I ate! but the bestest news was the cholesterol!!!!!!!!! I went from 275 (way high) to 208 almost in normal range!!!! all the other "cholesterol" numbers adjusted accordingly too!!! so another 6 months of eating good and then another blood test!!!!! Once again I am so thankful that I got another chance to eat healthy.!!!!

in the scrappy news.... don't forget to take a look at Thankful Harvest Card Kit at KNK and Creativity Boutique... I think there are still a few left.... They are not thanksgiving cards (but could be used for that) but rather Thank You cards made with the Beautiful Loverly Collection from GCD Studios!!!!

AND Watch for Some of my Sketches to be featured in the December Scrapbook Sussies KIT!

Well Today is the Day

I go back to the doctor today. It has been 4 months since I was diagnosed with high blood pressure. Today is My followup appointment. They are also checking my cholestrol which was HIGH 3 months ago..
I have made a lot of lifestyle changes since this all started!
I AM STILL CAFFIENE FREE!!!!!! an amazing feat for all who know me!!!!!!!
I have lost 30 pounds according to my scale!!!!! 30 pounds!!!! unbelieveable!!!!!
I eat much more healthier foods!!! at all meals!!!!!
I should be very proud... but mostly I am very thankful! Thankful that God gave me a chance to undo the years of my bad diet. I am completely aware that many don't get that chance. Thankful that he has helped me when I had no will power. Thankful that I have many friends (in real life and in cyber space) that have walked beside me along the way!!!!!
I hope the doctor agrres with me and that he is willing to take me off the blood pressures medications... hopeful that I am not trading it for cholestrol drugs.. but high cholestrol runs in the family so who knows. cross your fingers!

High School!

HIGH SCHOOL?????!!!!!!?????!!!!!
My baby girl is going to High School!! Amazing!! we had the meet and greet at the high school last night. Yep its only October and already its meet and greet!!! Besides that fact she swears she is gonna get lost..I think she will do fine! She was very mesmerized by the art room! She could have stayed in their all night. But then again she comes from a long line of artists on my side and her dad is an artist too!!!

On a scrappy note, I am so happy that my card kits are selling well! there are still one or two left of each so if you want one you might want to get one. Each comes with very detailed instructions so that even a beginner could do them, while veteran scrappers will still have fun! There are instructions for 6-7 cards in each kit, and plenty of suppliesw to make extra cards!!!! Don't miss out :D

Kit N Kaboodle members can purchase them at KNK while non members can purcahse them at out sister site Creativity Boutique
