I Have a New Blog

I have a new blog that will walk my followers through my weight loss attempt.  My blog is called Melt Away the Pounds and the site is:

I hope you check in and encourage me once in awhile.  I am following a program called Ideal Protein.  Today is my first day and so far so good.  I am so full I have trouble getting all the food in.  I am told that women lose 3-5 lbs. per week.  I have two friends who collectively have lost 160 lbs.

Wedding Card

Here is a wedding card I made for a wedding my husband and I are attending.  The groom's parents are very good friends.  We became friends when Luke, the groom was just a year old.  He is now 26 and getting married.  Where does the time go?


Card Made Using Flora Tones Color Palette

Here is a card I made using Heartfelt dies and the flora tones color palette:
I used the pink for the flowers in the middle and the green for the leaves.


Pages from my Smash Book

Someone requested that I show my pages from my smash book.  Here are a few:

It is very simplistic.  I basically use it to get color combination ideas.

Do You Have a Smash Book

I love my smash book.  I don't use it the way most people do.  In other words, I don't actually use it as a scrapbook.  I have a 12 x 12 book.  I like color palettes.  I use it for different color palettes that I have found.  Then when I get ready to create a card I go to my smash book and look at some of the color combinations to do something different or just get inspired.

 I would print these out on my color printer and then cut them down and put them in my smash book.  Now when I need inspiration or just get bored with the usual color combinations I can go look through my stash.
