Take a Hike!

I like to be different, but sometimes I’m different because I just didn’t listen or read things all the way through! Story of my life! DRS Designs is our sponsor at Cupcake Inspirations this week and has generously allowed us to use some of their stamp and digital images. Well, I just glanced at the inspiration photo and saw the colors red, white and pink.

I leisurely scrolled through the images on the DRS Designs website (some cute stuff there by the way!) and found these that I wanted to use…

I received my images and THEN I noticed the challenge theme, LOVE. A moment of panic, then pfffftttt…I got this!

I guess I need to take a new profile pic. I’ve lost about 20 pounds since then! Maybe I’ll wait until April 1, my one year mark. I feel a blog post coming on! My best friend Sheri and I decided it was time to whip ourselves into shape. We started out walking, then hiking, biking and yoga. It’s always a work in progress, but I LOVE every minute of it. I can’t wait til the weather is nice enough to get out there and start hiking and biking again!

I won’t bore you with all the technical details of my digital page, but I will say that Linda Sattgast at Digital Scrapper has THE best tutorials (she is Adobe’s endorsed scrapbooking expert) . Her Learn Digital Scrapbooking class taught me everything I needed to know about Photoshop Elements. I’m not a pro, but sometimes I feel like one! *No, I am not affiliated with Digital Scapper, the classes are just seriously good!*

So, I didn’t stop there, I made a digital card too!

I used Club Scrap® ‘s 02/18 Card Sketch for the background.

  1. Wendy, gee I’ve never had the problem with misreading instructions…LOL! Happens to me often. Mostly because I get impatient and don’t want to read all the way through, or every word. I’ve gotten myself in trouble a time or two, or three… I love the graphic of the boot tread. How clever is that. Congratulations on the exercise/weight loss journey. I used to run with one of my daughters for exercise. We also followed some of those exercise programs on disc. Sadly I moved farther away from her and now it’s not practical for us to participate. Besides she has small children and exercise and those two things don’t go together too well. I think about going outside to walk, often, but I don’t have a walking partner so I find too many excuses. Perhaps!! Please do share your story. I would love to read it. Besides the human aspect of our lives makes a blog seem more interesting; more relational. Regards, 🙂

    1. So true! I’m sorry it’s taken me almost 50 years to decide to get with the program, but now it’s a habit! It’s funny what you start discovering about yourself and the world around you when you hit midlife! Keep walking so you’ll be in shape for those grandkids AND having nice legs and a tight booty is always a plus!🤪
