The background paper is K&Co. Mira. The two strips are BG...can't remember which line...and K&Co. Que Sera. I used my MS lace border punch to make the lime strip underneath. The card used real lace, but I didn't have any lace or nice, fancy trim in this color. How can it be that in ALL this stuff that I have, I do NOT have that. That always seems to be the case...Sigh...Anyway...continuing...MM tiny alphas, K&Co. Madeline diecut (LOVE these, I think I need another box;), various Prima flowers...I cut the bird cage out of a sheet of BG. Once again...not sure of the name of the line as this is the only sheet I got from that particular line. Well two of this same sheet actually cause I just love the whole birdie/bird cage thingie.
I did another LO today. I tried to lift this one that Lal did last night of Mikey and improvise on the papers, but I just wasn't feeling it. I'm seriously not even going to upload it cause I REALLY don't like it. It's pretty simple and straight lined so I should have no problem removing the pic from it cause I love the pic and still want to use on that on a LO.
I think I just have a bit of cabin fever or something. I haven't gone anywhere all week other than to do my grocery shopping on Monday and back and forth to take and drop off the kids at school. Saturday I'm planning to go to my mom's; God willing, and Lal and I are going to do some shopping;) In a way it's a good thing. I'm really trying to limit my shopping trips and my spending and this once a week thing is working out pretty good. It's too easy to do the shopping thing when you are bored.
This week has been a nice weather week for working out in the yard. Monday I put out the potting soil and planted the wildflower seeds in that one area in my courtyard, but that's been the lot of my yardwork. The next two days I woke up with a bad allergy headache; all sniffly too. Boo!!! Hopefully next week I'll feel better and the weather will cooperate so I can do a little more work in the yard cause we all know once the summer heat hits...that's it!!!
Well, I'm off to peruse some galleries and message boards in search of some inspiration. I've got a load in the laundry right now, but right after I get it in the dryer, I'm hitting the sack. Oh...today I completed day 4 of my semi-Atkins. So far so good. Seriously. I don't know why I couldn't do it before...and the reason I say semi-Atkins is because I am not following it precisely.
During induction it's strictly protein with little else, but I have not elminated fruits and veggies nor my diet sodas although I have cut my consumption of them in a day by like half. I haven't weighed myself either so I'm not really sure what my exact starting weight was, but I have a fairly good idea. I will weigh in on Monday cause that will mark my one week. We shall see how that goes.
Oh...Lal is IMing me so I must go and "talk" to her cause it's been like a whole hour!!! SO much to catch up on;) Goodnight all.
