My Creative endevours have moved

MY NEW ART BLOG HERE I would love your company.

A New Year and a New beginning... I have created a new blog filled with old and new art. It is time for me to focus on something new. I will be leaving this blog open for inspiration and so I can look back at what I have achieved in the future but I will be adding no further content here.

Digital layout - Batwoman

Well am I good or what this week.... 3 posts in as many days hee hee. Hoping to get some challenge creations done tonight... planning a get down and get sticky session :D Would rather have a sticky bun right now but it's amazing how when you get absorbed in crafting you forget the thoughts of chocolate and all things sweet... great diet booster... well for me anyway.

I bought a new set of scales (having left my others with my pal Chriss for our weigh in sessions) couldn't resist them a bargain at just under £3 quid from Asda. Bargains should be banned I reckon cos I am just a sucker for them even if it's for something I don't really need (crafty bits being the exception though... they are a necessity aren't they?) Anyway as I haven't been able to pay Chriss my usual visit and feeling like I had been extra good this week on the NOT MUNCHING front I hopped on the scales to discover with glee that I have finally got below the next half stone goal and in total have now lost a whole 1st 8lb since January whoooohooooo
go me ... go me... go me eee eeee rofl

Don't really quite know where the fat has gone but hey who cares.... it's gone..whooohoooo. Not that I'm excited you understand ;-D

So on to today's crafty offering.... I find digi scrapping totally engrossing some days especially when I decide to make my own papers and embellies... which I did for this layout of DD dressed up for a girly night out recently (she's gonna kill me for showing it so if you know her keep I did have a little help from some actions I got from Atomic Cupcake to make the flowers and knotted ribbons however and if you are into digi it's a fab place to visit!!

This layout is what REALLY prompted my jump onto the cos I soooooooo remember being as thin as DD and enjoying getting dressed up instead of dressing down to hide the rolls!! If I keep going though... as I intend to do... I will be able to wear something lush by the summer when the warm weather arrives.
Bring on summer!!
Have a great evening all
Chris xx

I saw you on inspirational...Way TO Go!!!
I thought this was you, and then realized it was your DD!
What an awesome photo, I bet she had a fun night with this get up.


I am hovering at 15 pounds lost, but still working on it. Not gaining at least.
