Somerset Memories Toot X 3....

when ever I need that scrap boost....Somerset seems to send me out that email to make my day!! they requested 4 layouts...but one of them was already picked up by another magazine....but I am thrilled to send out the other 3!!! and that inspired me to scrap a little.....did one page....trying to get back into the scrappin' mood...I think I need it!!! did a little shoppin' at Scrappy Chic yesterday...I am in love with these new stickers from heidi swapp..you get a pink sheet and a black sheet...with the cutest sayings on them, and then I had to have these alphas from prima...they're like a cream with a black outline!! yum.....I think I may be in love with these.....
the reason I was at scrappy chic besides, the fact that it feels like I haven't been there in forever, last night was the VIP dinner....which I was excited to be a part of..there were about 12 of us...and they had a craft for us to do...when we got there..these adorable basic grey christmas ornaments...which I finished up today and hung on the tree...then we had a delicious candle lit dinner...which erin cooked...and it was delicious...and yes I ate it...but kinda cut my pita bread in half...and just skimmed the rice, but I ate the vegies...and peppers and chicken...then came the dessert tray full of creme puffs....but I grabbed one...and just kinda picked at it...left about half of it on the plate, made me feel like I was eating like a "normal" person...but still didnt' over do it!! and then to top it off we got a goodie bag...and a discount for shopping!! it was a great time...
knowing this mood I've been stuck in......I knew I needed a bff fix...so stopped over jenieces...and look what she got me!! I love old cameras...and this old polaroid is so stinkin' cute!!! I'm gonna put it on my shelf in my scrap room....but it was a much needed visit...and I am feeling better...I know that I always do feel better...just start to lose it....once in awhile..think I just get tired of being strong...I'm just not the strong type..but sometimes life makes you be what you never planned on being.....and I am so looking forward to my grief group...this week!!! it is always a big...vent...session...and I feel this huge strength come over me...after meeting with these strong woman each month who have made it through this nightmare....
and then today is weigh in day......been hitting the gym almost everyday..and now Tonee' has joined too...so it's kinda cool to have her hanging out with me....and even ran into Mel from my weight loss group.....there this morning...well wish me luck tonight talk to you all tomorrow!!
