Happy Thursday! Whew... it's been a long week! It's almost over and time for some much needed rest! That Halloween Party really took it out of me!
Today we have a little inspiration from yours truly and Grandma. I don't often have time to make projects, that is why I have a design team, but I really do miss it after a while! I just need to get in there and make something - it's therapy for me! I played with the new Glitz Hoopla collection and made some fun home decor projects in the never-ending pursuit of getting my house decorated! LOL! Take a look:

The canvas is Kaisercraft. I painted the edges black and let dry before I started. I used Glitz Hoopla: Cake and Floral as well as some Paper Layers, Whatnots and Cardstock Stickers. I added in some Prima Bling and Flowers and a Queen & Co. Felt Border. I love the way this one turned out! Here is the other one:
The canvas again is Kaisercraft. I used Glitz Hoopla: Frames, Pipework and Polka as well as Paper Layers and Whatnots. I also added in some Prima Flowers and a Queen & Co. Felt Border. I like this one, too and can't wait to hang them up in my house somewhere!
Now for a little inspiration from Grandma. Do you remember a while back when I told you Grandma Lori was losing weight? Well, she did it! She lost 65 pounds and made an album of her weight loss journey! I snapped a few pictures of her album because I thought it was so inspiring - in lots of ways! Take a look:
Up, Up and a Weigh - My Diet Journey by Grandma Lori
I just love all of her clever little phrases!
I love this page! She did it and is jumping for joy! I had to skip a few pages, because Grandma didn't want me to show you all pictures of her in her heavier days, but... I found a nice little before and after picture that I'm putting on here and she can't stop me! LOL!
