New CM Total!

Some may know I spent all my younger days being too thin and all my 30'S+ being too fat so I decided to do something about it!
I have been seeing a personal trainer for 7 weeks, its been hard because he tells you what to eat and what not to eat as well.
My current CM loss have been:
This is off the essential areas, bum , waist, legs and arm!
not bad eh?
i even keep it up for MOST of the convention!
I have to go for another run today which is hard with 2 dogs in tow!
My goal for the next measure (he does not believe in weight loss) is to reach 100cm!!

wish me luck!

Convention Swaps

The day after tomorrow I will be in Germany for the first European Stampin Up Conference, I am REALLY looking forward to it!!!... It been hard organizing the kids but worth it.
I was not sure how to tackle the swaps I had not done this before and the thought of making 180 swaps when I didn't feel confident was really difficult. I have made about 150 and decided if some people don't like them then its better to do less so I don't come home with any!
I have also made some bag tags for 'THE PINK LADIES' we are all part of the lovely Michelle's downline team and this is out name, they are not very Stampin up but I thought that would be better so it definitely will not be duplicated!hope you lik the pics
