What a week! Busy! :) Good Busy, though :) Oh and I am super pumped...lost 11 lbs. and exceeded my goal (wanted to lose 10 by 11/19) so I just added another 10. What heck. I did plateau this week though so I am going to need to switch it up a bit. I am thinking maybe going back to some P90X videos. I just love running though. I just think and think and it clears my head. Lately I feel like I can just run and run and keep going.

Thanks for letting me share. It feels so good to be back on the horse AND down a pants size!

So on with the scrappy stuff, ellen!

i created this gift box and mini for a co-worker who is having a baby. not sure if you remember this post with the MME Alphabet Soup flash cards....but it goes with know ...a set. He has been a good friend to me and one of the reasons I stayed with the company for the last year or so. It was hard for me to give notice there so i am going to keep one or two clients at least for the next few weeks and see if i can manage.

Supplies are MME Alphabet soup papers and 12x12 die cuts (you know how I love me some die cuts), tons of Glimmer Mists and Shimmerz, some Pink Paislee Trim and jewel, a myStampBOX stamp for the tag, and a Punky Sprouts flower (LOVE THESE!!!!)

The bingo card is vintage from my stash. I actually added binder clips to this instead of the hemp.

I stamped on the flower with Stazon and the my favorite things stamps from FTLOA...

Have a GREAT weekend!!!
