H2H Challenge: Change

Hi Everyone!

Welcome to my blog! This week's Heart2Heart Challenges theme is "Change".  My project is a single page layout featuring Close To My Heart's Adventure Fundamentals Paper.  The layout was inspired by Jeanette R. Lynton's Half & Half Simple Frames pattern found in her Reflections Scrapbook Program.  The layout I created is the story of my change to a healthy life.  I decided a year ago that I had to change.. I had to lose weight and be healthy not only for me but for my family.  I changed my eating habits, exercised and became more active.  All these changes helped me lose 50 lbs in a year and I feel so much better now that I'm healthy.  I hope that my story will inspire others to make the "Change" they need in their lives.




Here's a list of the tools and products used to create this card:
  • Adventure Fundamentals Paper
  • Teal Shimmer Trim
  • Blessed Beyond Measure SOTM Stamp
  • White Daisy Cardstock
  • Black Cardstock
  • Black Ink Pad
  • Adhesive
  • 3D Foam Tape
  • Cricut Cartridge (Page Title)
