October Kit reveal day!!

Hi everyone, first I need to apologize for not sending out the sneak peak of the kit. Life got busy. But I am here now to show you full photos of the items that I have made using this great kit that you can purchase from Srappn With Flair. I still have some papers and embellishments to use up so hopefully I can get to it really soon and post more photos :)  in the meantime hope you enjoy what you see and feel free to leave a comment :)
first layout
I had used a white pen to highlight some of the pine needles, a bottle of stickles came in my kit so I used it on the berries and the poinsettia. The poinsettia was made from some of the paper from the kit. The cardstock (photo mat) was my own :)
Second layout
everything here is from the kit except for the photo mat :)

 the last item that I made is a doorknob holder I think that is what they are called.
I drew the shape onto cardboard then covered it with paper and embellishments from the kit. The "bakers twine" is homemade :)
Check out the other design team members blog to see what they were able to create

Lose it!

Hi everyone, I was needing to loose a few pounds and wanted to keep track of what I ate. I found this AWESOME program for free :) here on the web and just wanted to share it with you. It's a calorie counter called Lose It!  It's very easy to use. Keeping track of what I eat is something I need to do and this program does this ! The program calculates what my calorie intake should be that day, it calculates the calories that I burn off from my walking/exercise oh and it even lets me know the date of when I will reach my goal!  lol  just wanted to share :)

ps thought I should mention that I get no profit from this site/program. I found it out there while surfing and wanted to share

Here is my take on the October challenge over at Scrapn with flair
The papers that I used is left overs from a page that I had done. It is from the Bo Bunny line. I had to fussy cut the flowers which was a bit time consuming but worth it :) if you look closely to the large flower center I used Crackle accents from ranger and then once dried I inked the cracks with vintage distress ink The corrugated cardboard came from a box lol I just peeled back the paper, inked it and voila! This card was given to my sister who hosted the thanksgiving meal. Between you and me she loved it! hope you get some ideas here.
