A New "Just For Me" Layout...

It feels like it's been awhile since I scrapped a layout that wasn't for an assignment, design team, class, studio sample or call and I have to say that it felt good and a tad bit strange. I always feel that when I'm scrapping for myself is when I am most true to my style as well as to myself. Zoey saw this one and asked me why I don't smile when I'm all hot and sweaty after working out. =) Speaking of which, this summer has been a good one for me in regards to slowly getting back into shape and figuring out a healthy way to relieve my stress through both exercise and healthier eating. Hoping I continue on this track (literally and figuratively!). And for whatever reason (my friends from way back that are reading this may get a kick out of this) I've been on a major Kenny Chesney kick this summer. He is all that I listen to on the iPod and I've found lots of his songs are good for getting me pumped up for my workouts which is always a good thing.

For a different twist on my journaling for this layout I used my ZIG Signature Photo pen and wrote directly on to my photo overlay and used them as my journaling blocks.

Supplies: American Crafts pp, Basic Grey pp, Collage Press die-cut circles, 7gypsies stickers, American Crafts alphabet stickers, Adorn-It mini-alpha stickers, My Minds Eye photo overlay, ZIG Signature Photo pen, art stamp (clock), masking tape, sewing machine stitching

And one of my favorites...

good for you for improving your health and lifestyle. that is MAJORLY on my mind. this summer has messed me up, too many pizza rolls for lunch and other easy stuff, 'cause it's easy. i need to get walking again and watching what i eat. thanks for the motivation!
