You Go Girls!!

Hiya Friends & Happy Thursday!! One more day till the holiday weekend--yay!! It has been such beautiful weather here in VA the past few days--mid 70's & no humidity! I've had the windows open everyday--it's fabulous!! I hope it continues thru the weekend! I'm not sure of what we're doing yet, but Alexa is going on a weekend boat trip with her friend's family. I think hubby wants to go camping, but we'll see--I'm more for doing some fun day trips :o)!!

**I finished my Copic Colorless Blender Tips/Tricks Video for you yesterday & it's now up on my sidebar under Video #13!! It was hard to squeeze lots of info in 10 mins--darn YouTube, hee hee!**

So, I was inspired by my weightloss & gettin' fit struggle when I made my projects for today! I have some friends who are feeling my pain & going thru the same struggle right now & I thought it would be fun to make them all some "You Go Girl" packages!! Everyone needs a boost now & then ya' know! I pulled out my never-been-used(gasp) "Weightwatchabella" from Stamping Bella and went to town! Each set includes a fun card, a weightloss/diet notebook and a popcorn box full of diet goodies (yummy Fiber One bars & Crystal Lite packets). The dp is DCWV "Citrus" and I just used some fun ribbon & buttons for embellies!

Those popcorn boxes were bought in a pack at Michaels (in the candy section for like $3)--really fun to decorate & fill with all sorts of goodies! The notebook's sentiment says "Mama said there'll be days like this", LOL and its from Verve Stamps--pretty appropriate as we all feel the burn!!

Close-up of my card--I used this week's SCS sketch #229 for my layout! The image was colored with Copics and the sentiment is from Stamping Bella too! If you lovee this set, I have an extra one up for sale in my Etsy shop(link over on my sidebar)!!

**Also wanted to let you know of a fabulous event that will be happening next week (May 25th thru the 31st) for Alzheimers. It's called Stampin' Out Alzheimers and will be a huge challenge and contest site all next week to raise money for research & funding for Alzheimers. This is particularly close to my heart because my grandfather died many years ago from this disease before my children really got the chance to know him, sadly. The cost to enter, play & win is $5 a person (good for the entire week) and we'd love to have you join us. Susana's store is hosting a sketch challenge & the prizes include an entire set of Victoria Case for SCACD stamps (9 stamps), a pack of Dovecraft paper & some fun embellies! You can check out the site & join up by clicking on the link/widget on my sidebar!! And tell your friends too!! **

Hope you all have a fabulous day!!
