Wednesday Weigh In: Fitness Motivation Album

The weigh in unfortunately is the same as it's been all month. 158 lbs and not budging.

So I thought I would share with you a little something I made to keep myself motivated.

Awhile ago I won a My Memories Digital Scrapbooking Pack over at the Silly Pearl.  I downloaded the Suite and then my computer broke.  It took a couple of weeks to get it back and then I decided to give this software a try.  It couldn't be half as bad as actually cutting out all of those elements and gluing them onto a scrapbook page by hand right?  I hate paper crafts!

I decided to start with something easy.  Dump a bunch of pictures on a page with some text and throw on whatever page elements the software came with and voila!  I'd have something!

Here we go:

I made the pages small in order to fit inside this CD wallet.

I think I was at a university event about 12 years ago and the organizers were throwing these CD wallets out into the crowd.  I grabbed one, but don't actually use CDs anymore.  And I don't drink Bud!  Might as well do something healthy with it.  I glued the first page onto the front.  Then I inserted the middle pages into the CD pockets inside the book.  I glued the Stay On Target page onto the back cover.

Not too bad for my first foray into digital scrapbooking.  I'll definitely try to make it look more pro and less slapped together when I try scrapbooking something really important, like Logan's first year at pre-school or kindergarten.  And Lane's first couple of years on this planet.  And our family holidays, etc.

But for now, this scrapbook stays with me in the spare room where I exercise and hopefully it will give me the encouragement I need to lose this final 8 lbs :D
