HBF Run for a Reason

Yesterday I did my first full training walk for the HBF Run for a Reason. I walked for 2hrs 10mins. I am feeling it today but not where I expected :)

On the 22nd May I will walk 14km and all monies raised will go to the Cancer Council of WA. I am walking in memory of my friends and relatives that have lost their brave battle with cancer.

Here is the link to my fundraising page http://hbfrunfundraising.com.au/brigitte_harris

I thank you in advance for taking the time to check out my page xxx

Scrapping Share

A few more layouts to share, I have scrapped so much this month I am amazing myself!

This one is from Chook Scraps Amazing Race - round 2, see if you can guess the criteria or head on over to the forum and check it out!

Another Blind Scrap page from Scrapbooking from Scratch I am loving these classes as I am getting all my travel photos from last year scrapped! I changed this one after as I journalled on the kraft cardstock and then hated my journalling, so I painted it out, journalled again and added some stamps to match the doors!
This page was about my obsession with taking photos of doors over in Europe!

Yesterday I spent all day up at Just Scrapbooking in Perth and did 2 great classes. The first class was taught by Jordie. Two beautiful layouts designed to be a double if you wish. I made them two singles as the one titled Ellie is now framed and will be given as a gift to my friend! The paper range is Theresa Collins Posh and I loved it so much I just had to buy more :)

The second class was taught by Sandie and was a beautiful boxed gift set of cards. We used the cricut in this class. Love the way this project turned out.

The pretty box including 4 matching cards.

One of the cards inside the box.

I am very happy with all these creations, they are so different and all so much fun to do :)

Michelle Bridges - Mini Milestone

As part of the Michell Bridges 12WBT program we have to complete a mini milestone every 4 weeks. This weeks challenge was to complete a mini triathlon (please insert shocked expression here) This was to consist of a 5km walk/run, a 10km bike ride and an 800m swim! We could also choose to do this at home using our own equipment or at a gym (substituting the swim for rowing) I decided to complete it at home using my own equipment. Unfortunately I do not have a rowing machine so I walked my dogs for 25 mins, then completed a 5km walk uphill on the treadmill and a 10km cycle on my exercise bike! Total time 1:29:34! Even though technically I did not complete a triathlon I am very proud of myself and what I achieved today :)

4 weeks to go for this round and then I am signing up for round 2. Bring it on :)

Feel my temp I have scrapped again :)

Another challenge found at the challenge blog Chat with Charm for the April Artastic Challenge, this months inspiration came from a painting titled 'Autumn Wonder' by Debbie Adams Why don't you go on over and have a look at all the gorgeous DT samples and all the fabulous entries so far!
This challenge was right up my creative alley and it helps that Autumn is my favourite time of year and my favourite colour combo!

Another Challenge today :)

This one is for the April 123 Challenge which you can find here The criteria is to use the colour lime green, the word Really and fabric. I must admit I have not used much fabric, just a smidgeon to cover my punched out butterfly!

The colours are so washed out in this photo, my skills at taking photos of my layouts is sadly lacking! The background behind the photo is watercolour crayon in lime green and is quite bright on the actual layout.
Oh well I know how it really looks :) TFL xx

Weight Loss Journey

For the past 7 weeks I have been following the Michelle Bridges 12 week body challenge, this is me at week 1:

I weighed in at 82.2kg, I now weigh 74.6kg. I will post my after photo when the 12 weeks is finished.
This has been an amazing journey and one I will be on for life :)
