Congrats Grandmother :)

Hi everyone :)

Recently my mom asked me to make her a card for a friend of hers that is becoming a Grandma :)

So I made 2 so she'd have a choice on which one she wanted! LOL :)

And yes, I know I need help with my coloring skills ... lol :)





Also -- I wanted to share something that I shared over on Instagram and Facebook last week -- on the 14th, it was our 8th wedding anniversary -- and we went out to a show.  The people running the show took our photo as a memento and when I saw the photo I was like ..... "Whoaaaaaaaaaa .. I look pretty dang good in this photo!!!" *wink*

So ... I wanted to share the photo from the show ... and then a BEFORE and SO FAR AFTER photo :)

I have lost 47 pounds so far!! :)


(And you know I am mentally going through my scrappy stash thinking of what PAPERS I have to match this photo so I can scrap it, right??!!?? LOL!!!!)



And here is BEFORE and SO FAR AFTER photo :)

I didn't start this journey until June 2015, but didn't have a full body picture of myself from that time, so I used the April one as I was the same weight in April as I was in June :)




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