Hoorray - we're off and running!!!

Wow - I can't believe it has been almost a month since I last updated?! I apologize once again to the masses! LOL! I can see by the lack of smack - ya'll didn't even notice - much less miss - my absence?! I am not sure how I feel about this?!

I will just take solace in believing that you must be just as busy with summer and life as I have been! Life is good... and summer brings with it lack of routine - which if you know me at ALL you know how much I thrive on routines and schedules! So - after our DC trip it took me about a week or so to get back into my normal life! I have struggled this summer in remaining focused and disciplined with my weight loss efforts... last year was hard in the summer but I was still losing at a steady pace and so the motivation was there! This year, however, I have been battling through that dreaded Plateau - leaving my motivation dragging behind... I have lost a bit here and there... (and gained it back and lost it again) and I should remeasure soon - but I know that I haven't been consistent in the Strength Training to really 'blame' it all on muscle! LOL! I am pressing through... I am nearing the 80 pounds gone mark - and hope to press through and lose another 20 or so at a regular pace!

I am working on a Wedding Album - LOVE to do these!!! I get to work with the Basic Grey Wisteria line and I am in LOVE with it - the colors are so yummy! I have done a few Baby Albums as well...

I have also been partnering with in designing digital photo books! This is such an awesome opportunity - and a great site! So far, I have designed about 5 lines - 2 birthday, 2 PuppyLove, and a FriendshipCafe Line! I think they are slowly adding the creations - so check out the website and look for my creations in the Designer Lines section! Right now - they are featuring my PuppyLove line for Girls! I also have one in more masculine male colors... Check back here soon for a little LOVE... hoping to get a freebie or two to share with you all - my faithful followers and sneaky stalkers! I love these photo books because they make GREAT gifts or special occassion books with a scrapbook look but they are fast and easy - just upload your photo's to Hoorray and drag and drop! Nice!!! So - check out the designs and let me know what you think!

Anyway - I will be back to a normal routine soon... I am working on some holiday themes for Hoorray and hope to be back to writing soon too!

So - what have you been doing this summer?! Are you working on any fun layouts or vacation picture projects?! Do tell!!!

Scrap Happy and Stay Cool! (We're in triple digits here!)

OK I too have been undisiplined in my blogging and weightloss efforts, but school starts soon and I hope that will help me get back on track.
