This is my piece for the Color Room this week. I've always loved lilac and green so this was an especially enjoyable palette to play with. I took this picture of my old man kitty PJ or Mr. Handsome as I call him most of the time. He is retired now and when I saw him on the porch curled around the herb plants it reminded me how good it is to relax sometimes. Still on my weight loss journey but I really wanted to do his picture this week. Back to the journal next week and hopefully some mixed media. Time, where art thou? :)

Well I usually love a vintage shabby look. A pretty look. And sometimes I love a bright sunny look but this was not a pretty sunny week. I'ts still a struggle to regulate my medicine after having my thyroid removed and sometimes it really effects my best efforts at weight loss. Not to mention my energy and creativity! In retrospect I wish I would have tried harder to lose weight before all my surgery but that's the old hindsight's 20/20, right? So I really had to work hard to overcome some serious obstacles on the weight loss plan that I chose and this reflects that.
Also couldn't quite decide how to handle the color scheme on this week's palette at the Color Room. I was sitting in a waiting room and decided to find all my elements in a magazine if I could so this is more of a collage I guess. But it was fun and all's well that ends well, eh? Now I'm going to work on my sunny "reward" piece because I'm feel better and think I may have this under control for a bit. Thanks for the kind comments and encouraging emails as I keep moving forward on this path and I wish you all the best on each of your endeavors as well.... :) See you soon!

This is my second page for my weight loss scrapbook. I really am enjoying recording this journey. I have lost 11 pounds which is amazing but I want it to be faster! Ah, impatience. This being one of the finer traits I possess. One that has contributed to my weight gain, I'm sure. Anyway I did this for the Color Room using their beautiful color palette as inspiration. Blues, greens and all the lovely shades in between are my favorites so this was a lot of fun for me.

I'm starting a new weight loss program for the first time in years and I'm going to journal and scrap the journey. This is my glimpse of my slimmer self in the future...the younger looking me is just a bit of wishful thinking :) I did this for the Color Room challenge this week.
I have been thinking about starting a separate blog just about scrapping and journaling weight loss. I haven't really seen one that focuses on both. Hmmm? Any thoughts?
