A healthlier new me -- featuring Basic Grey :)

Hi everyone!! :) 

We are live on the Frosted Designs blog with our latest challenge -- STAMPING!!!! :) 

I used my Mason Jar stamp that I got in July at Viva Las VegaStamps and I used Basic Grey's Persimmon collection on my page :) 







A co-worker introduced me to making my salads this way .... Brian helps me assemble these on SUNDAY ... and then I grab a salad a day to take to work with me!  Pour all the contents into a bowl at work, add dressing (from a separate tupperware container that I have also pre-packaged for my work week) ... and then POOF! I have a salad a day!! :) 

And just in case you are wondering ..... 

Friday's salad looks just as fresh as Monday's :)   The mason jar seal helps keep them fresh all week long :) 


 



 
Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
