Happy Tuesday to you all! I'm not gonna chat it up too much here--I've got lots to do today! I am happy to announce that I've worked back up to running 2.5 miles--hopeful to make it 5 again soon and pulled out my Jillian Michaels DVDs and let her kick my bum around a bit. So that means I'm sore!! LOL! But I have less than 30 days until our beach vacation to Hilton Head Island so I've gotta be hardcore in order to hit the beach in swimwear, hee hee. I got my new Breville Juicer and I'm starting a 4-5 day juice fast tomorrow that I hope will detox me a bit and jumpstart some weightloss. I still will eat a salad and fish each night for dinner but juices for the rest of my meals--not so hard for me cuz' I'm always forgetting to eat and then I starve and shove junk in my mouth, KWIM? Let's see if I can kick this 15 lbs to the curb once and for all---let's at least cross our fingers, kay? LOL!

"Fairy Dust Tilda" from Magnolia-licious (the Fairytale Collection) I know she's supposed to be blowing fairy dust, but all I could think of was blowing dandelions in the wind as a kid! My mom would get mad and say that I was creating more weeds, lol, but I loved doing it (and still do). So my Tilda is blowing dandelions in the wind just like I used to!!
Nestabilities Labels 1. It's hard to see in this pic, but the one above showcases it well--I added scrolls onto my cream cs with a Viva Decor Gloss Pen (in opaque) to create the swirls and pearls (free-handed I might add too, hee hee). I wanted to match the die cut swirls I tucked into the Prima flowers. The yellow trim was done with a newer MS border punch--I love it!
I colored this cutie with Copics (R05,R02,R00/Y15,Y11,Y000/E25,E31,YR20) and then I added stardust Stickles to her socks and lace trims. The "dandelions" were highlighted with pale lemon Flower Soft so they stand out more! I just love this cutie surrounded by happy colors---hope it puts a smile on your face too!
See ya back here tomorrow!
