scrapbooking the proces

this is a layout that i have wanted to do since i hit my weight loss goal in april. tonight seemed like the perfect night to get it done. (i wanted to give a copy of it to my weight watchers leader tomorrow at our meeting.) this for me was all about scrapping the process... a little piece of me... ok, a BIG piece of me... 36 pounds of me!

this year one of my big goals has been to have a few more pictures of me in my scrapbook pages. since i am always the one behind the camera, i seem to wriggle my way out of being in most of our family's photos. this was especially evident to me when i was trying to find a "before" picture. it was pitiful!!! the picture i used on this layout was the best i could come up with. so if you're thinking of taking on a challenge in your scrapbooking this year, may i suggest handing the camera over? then using some of the pictures that result in your scrapbook... scrapbook your process... whatever it happens to be at this moment. thanks for looking!

Congrats CKSOY finalist! Your work is beautiful, you deserve it. I'm actually challenging myself as well to take pics of me and since I'll be attending CKU-Nashville and taking the Snapshot of Me class I guess I have no choice but to stick with it.

WOW you have inspired me! Can I ask how long it took you to lose your weight? I have gained 27 lbs over the last two years from medication and well maybe a little over eating!! LOL!! Okay a lot of over eating! I enjoy your post on ckmb. I am still very new there and enjoy posting with all the super sweet ladies there. Keep up the great work with WW and congrats to you on your lose!! You look beautiful!!
