finally posting pics of me!

Alright, I am finally going to post some pics of me, since I have been maintaining my weight now for 3 months.
So here is my current pic, taken a couple of weeks ago, when I first look at it, I still see my thunder thighs especially, but in reality, I just don't have a perfect body, and I think it's as good as it's going to get. Just to remind, I went from 223 lbs to about 153 ( I go up and down from from 151 to 155), I wore a size 18 jean and now, size 8! This was me in November, I had lost 47 lbs at that point.
And this was me (and Randy) about 1 week before I started WW, which was 13 months ago now. I have to admit, it's quite a change! Just look at those arms! And my arms still look flabby, but so much better!

Well, thanks for looking and following along on my weight loss journey!
I will be back next week hopefully with a post of some pages and cards I've gotten done lately!

I found a few more!

I found a few things I did awhile ago and didn't take pictures of.
Track for Randy, very very simple.
Baseball for Brandon: Christmas for the family book, sorry about the blur:

A baby shower invitation. I had several different patterned papers that I used from my stash. I did them like a postcard.

Thanks for looking, and hey! Two posts in one week!

A couple projects

As usual, I am far behind on posting my projects! I forgot to take pictures of some! But, I have done a couple of unique things in the past weeks!
I cut these from reflective strips that Clinton had, this is the logo for the company he works for, he wanted them for his hard hat as they have to have so many square inches of reflective. Anyways, I used SCAL along with inkscape to accomplish this. He was THRILLED with it, and that takes a lot for him!
This was a card for a cousins 8th grade graduation.
This is a piggy bank I made for my neices baby shower. Down the side I used the new Cindy Loo cartridge.

This is the front of the piggy bank. I used SCAL for this part. Both the lavendar and the brown are cricut vinyl. I really love how this project turned out, so there will be many more of these in the future! I'm thinking Christmas for my daycare kids and probably every baby gift I need for awhile! heehee!

Thanks for looking!
I did get Randy to take some updated pics of me the other day, hopefully I will get them on here in the next few days!
