~ you are appreciated~

Happy Saturday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Well today was another weigh-in day for the weight loss challenge I am involved in at my gym.
I was shocked this week that I lost 6 lbs. So overall I am at a 13% weight loss. I was in first place last week.  I will see how that unfolds for this week. There is one more week to go. Focus is my buzzword this week.
Now onto my card for today. This one I made for the inspiration challenge #433 on Splitcoaststampers. Audrie was our hostess and she chose the Flickr gallery of Ruth Bleakley for our inspiration.
I chose the Eagle Creek Topographic map and the blue marbled journals as my inspiration pieces. I knew I had some Stampin-Up designer paper that resembled the design of both these books and in the same colors.

The designer paper is from Stampin-Up's "venetian romance" collection. I used the island indigo pattern for my background and the calypso coral pattern for my flags.

The "thanks" word is a die from Taylored Expressions. I received it as a thanks for a recent order.

The "you are appreciated" words are from the Verve "teachers count" set. My layout is the March Week 1 Viva la Verve sketch.
Well, its late and time to dim the lights in Charmed Life Land for another day. So until next time.......God bless.
