Earlier in my scrapbooking career, I would see gorgeous new paper lines and lose my mind purchasing 2-3 sheets of each sheet within a line if the paper was double-sided. If there were tags, quotes or sayings on one side I definitely had to get multiples so that I had “enough” to use the tags, journal cards, etc. and still be able to use the pattern on the back. As you can imagine this was quite expensive.
Fast forward to today. I have a lot of “retired” paper lines, untouched. I have more flowers and embellishments than a small craft store.

So you were just notified that your favorite scrapbook expert is coming and their class costs what?? Have you noticed that the cost to attend workshops taught by some industry leaders is ever increasing. I have never been one to be star struck or awestruck over anyone, however there are certain scrapbook experts that have techniques and styles I enjoy. The inclination to register for the class would have to be within reason regardless. I know the “within reason” is different for everyone.

I immediately thought of this layout when I found the moodboard challenge on Off The Rails.
I love adding a pop of color to a black and white layout. I couldn’t resist the animal print button to play off of the title. I enjoyed remembering this fun day at the zoo!
Dr. Oz 21-Day Weight Loss Breakthrough (my experience)
I absolutely love fried rice, especially shrimp fried rice or chicken fried rice. My mom gave me a wonderful recipe for chicken fried rice that I have made more times than I can remember so when I decided to try the Dr. Oz 21-Day Weight Loss Breakthrough I knew I needed to cut back on white rice, pasta, potatoes and other starchy vegetables. If you are anything like me, in order to be successful at weight loss and overall healthy living, it must be a lifestyle change and not just a fad diet. So I have made the decision to replace some of the animal protein with plant-based protein, limit my carbohydrate intake, and add more fish to my diet.
