Hello! Happy Thursday!
Hoping your week has been fabulous so far. It's almost the weekend!! Yay!
Today I wanted to share an altered project with you! (long post here...sorry) I don't do these very often, but this one was so much fun, I just might have to try more!
Matthew and I have been trying to adjust our lives to live a more healthy lifestyle. It hasn't been easy, but we are trying. He will be participating in a Tough Mudder at the end of June with our best friends, so once we got back from Christmas vacation, the real work began. We have been trying to run a lot more (our poor treadmill...it's so old, sounds like it's going to fall apart every time we get on it :) ), and we have been doing a lot of cardio/lifting. I have started the BodyRock 30 day challenge, and I love it!
We bought a new set of hand-weights that we both can use. They were pretty pricey, but we got a refund on our home loan, so we were able to purchase them. I love them! They are adjustable from 5 to 50 pounds and perfect for our lifting workouts where our weight tolerance varies from each move.
So with our attempts to better our lives, I decided I needed a workout journal. I received a few for Christmas this year and figured one of them would work perfect!
Here she is in all her glory!
Jamie Workout from Saturated Canary. She's printed out at about 4 inches, which is huge for what I normally put on a card. But I loved that I could really get into the details of the image. Normally when they are so small, the little stuff get's missed. I tried to give her more of a tan coloring, but it didn't turn out quite the way I wanted. Colored pencils can only do so much :)
And she has a leopard print sports bra...um yeah. I wish I had a leopard print sports bra...
The leopard background paper was a purchase I made about 3 years ago. Before we moved to Montreal, I had repainted our bedroom in our Seattle house brown with a leopard spotted border. So I was going to use this paper for the scrapbook. I've been hanging on to it because I absolutely love it, and finally decided that this was a great project to use it on.
This journal cover has all my favorites on it: Leopard Print, Blue, Roses/Flowers, Glitter, Beads, Saturated Canary, Gems in her hair!!
So what's not to love :)
The rest of the papers are from my scraps stash that I have accumulated over the last 2 years. I hang on to everything! I figured, using some of them as little flag strips would work perfect, and they look great! So good choice on my part :)
The last thing I did to the cover once I was done was spray the whole thing with some Pearl Ex glimmer mist.
You know I love glitter and the glimmer mist just completes the whole gorgeousness of the cover!
Anyhow, have a fabulous day!!
