Pastel Gratitude Flowers


While the kids watch a little TV before they go to bed, I thought I would finally get this post up that has been waiting for me for a few days now! Then I have a feeling it is off to bed for me...starting up a workout routine apparently takes it out of you. Unfortunately my kick-butt Jillian Michaels workouts were getting harder and harder to find kid-free time for...my daughter has decided that waking up at a consistent (preferably later) time is just plain silly, so I was getting extremely frustrated with getting up really early to work out to be worried the whole time that I might not get to finish it because she would wake up. So what happens when I get frustrated about working out...I stop. So in an effort to find me some kid-free time, I decided to join a gym where they watch my kids! So here's hoping that this sticks!

Anyway, this is my final Color Challenge card...yup I manage to do them all! This is for the Moxie Fab World Pretty Pastels Color Challenge in honor of the Color Inspiration for Cardmakers special edition. My colors don't match exactly, but I got the "feel" of them with the colors I used. I cut a bunch of big scalloped circles of different sizes and crumpled them up and then tied them together with a white button brad. The big middle one was then attached to a white Lacey Circle as well. The pattern paper is from the retired Banbury collection from Stampin' Up!. The sentiment is from the Beautiful You set from Verve Stamps.

It looks like my next week will be pretty quiet here on the Blog...I will be preparing for a wonderful scrapbooking weekend with my good friends. I am hoping that I am preparing well enough ahead of time so that I can be uber productive that weekend...I feel very behind in scrapbooking since we haven't done it in awhile! But I am sure I will check in at some point! Till then, thanks for checking out my kind of engineering!
