Butterfly cards

I know it is starting to feel like fall outside, but I had some left over paper from another project and I decided to make some cards. They have a SPRING feeling to them, so maybe I was wishing it was closer to the beginning of summer, rather than the end. Anyway, I am starting to look forward to cooler days and having some time to scrapbook while Joe and Hope watch football together. Yeah!
Anway, here are the cards I mentioned in my earlier post. I used some Stampin' Up rub-ons and punches, and the paper was all from Crate Paper. The Butterfly punch was Martha Stewart, and I think this is my new favorite punch.





Enjoy! Have a good night!

Technical Difficulties...

I am the September Featured Designer at The Scrappy Gourmet this month, but they are having technical problems with their website. They should have it up and running within the next few days. I already shared a few photos of the project, "Cherished Moments" in a previous post.

I also have some cards I worked on last week. I will post those as soon as I have the chance to get them photographed.

I also went to visit my sister Dee this weekend, and went shopping at The Scrappy Gourmet. I got lots of great stuff to work with, and can't wait to get started on several different projects.

Keith Urban Video!

Here is a link to the Keith Urban video for, "Only You Can Love Me This Way". He shot the live concert footage in Des Moines, Iowa. I was at the concert, and it was awesome! He had to play the song twice to make sure they got enough footage for the video. That boy can play a guitar! Taylor Swift opened for him, and was awesome too! If you ever get a chance to see either of them, I HIGHLY recommend it. http://www.kjjy.com/goout.asp?u=http://www.keithurban.net/kutube.html?ma_id=&mc_id=316

Here are some pictures from concert! Enjoy!

The results are in!

I successfully completed the Farrell's Extreme Body Shaping 10 week class! I am please to say I improved in every area we were required to keep track of. I have a long ways to go to my ultimate goal, but I am well on my way to a healthier lifestyle.

My most impressive improvement was in the number of push-ups completed in one minute. On the initial testing, I only did 26. At the end of the 10 weeks, I completed 55! WOW! I also lost 3.25 inches in my waist.

I loved the class so much (after I got past the initial soreness), that I signed up for another year of classes.

I hope in the future I have more great results to share. Maybe now I can get back to scrapbooking again!
