Happy Canada Day! Plus and update, new kits, layouts and the GS Buffet!

Happy Canada Day to all of my friends and family in Canada today!

I can't believe that it's already July! Emma has been finished Kindergarten now for over a week and we're enjoying our Summer vacation. :) We had a few days of fog and rain but it looks like it's clearing up now so I think we're going to pack a picnic and take the kids to the playground so they can go nuts for a while. Gotta keep'em active so they sleep all night. lol. The first thing they wanted to do today was make Canada flags. We used some red and white construction paper, glue, and some straws. The kids cut out their shapes and glued them together to make the flags. Then I used some straws as "flag poles" and tapes them to the back. It was so much fun for them and kept them busy for a while. :) Here's a little pic of their creations.

I know that I've been a very neglectful blogger and I'm going to try and post more often. :) I have some cool freebies planned for giveaways this summer and I hope that you're going to love them!

Since my last post, I've started a new healthy living/weight loss program and I've got to say, I'm really pleased with the results so far. I'm cutting back on all the junky foods I eat and I'm exercising too! I started talking short walks and now I've trippled the distance in just a few short weeks. I've lost quite a bit of weight but I don't how how much in pounds though. I didn't weigh myself when I started but I have gone down in my pants size from a 22-24 to a 20! I am sooooo proud of myself. Each day has been a struggle and I've splurged a few times too many, but I'm trying to do my best and it's working for me! Yay!

I just knew that if I was serious about changing my life like this, I would need a cool kit to scrap some layouts with. I searched through digi-land but couldn't find anything that I really liked.... so.... I created my own! Yay! A WORK IN PROGRESS is packed full of weight loss/healthy living elements that I'm using to document my weight loss journey. Here's a little preview of the kit. It's on sale at my GS store for only $3.75 this week.

I also thought that it would be a great motivator for me to post some pictures of me as I go through this process. If you're a fan of Inspired Designs on Facebook, you've probably already seen these. I have an album on my fan page that I'll be updating with my layouts. Here they are!

Each month I'll be updating my layout with current pictures and journaling about what I did that month. I'll be posting another update in about 2 weeks. :) I also plan on offering an add-on to the kit each month with new elements and papers to match the kit. That way I'll have fresh layouts each month! So, if any of you are thinking about getting healthy and need something to help scrap and preserve your journey, A WORK IN PROGRESS is the right kit for you!

Seeing that it's summer and lots of people are taking vacations and traveling, the designers at GingerScraps have gotten together and created the most amazing Buffet ever! AWAY WE GO is a travel/vacation themed collection that packed full of amazing travel elements, papers, journal cards, tag, labels, alphas, fasteners, etc... Everything you'll need to scrap those special vacation memories!

Have a lookie at what I've got on sale for only $1 each this week! 

So.. I'll be back tomorrow with some details on your new summer freebies!
