30, thirty,30,10x3=30,30.5 to be exact.

Hi there,
just in case you didn't get it i have now lost 30.5kg's and must say am pretty proud of myself.

OK here is the mini album-although not that mini that i am making for Caitlins BFF (Brie i hope you are not looking at this). It's a 6" X 12" album. These LO's are already in their plastic sleeves so they have come out a bit shiny-sorry.

On this one below i have made an envelope with my trusty cricut and stuck it on the outside of the plastic sleeve and put some more photos inside it. I love little pockets and hiding places.

All of the paper i have used is Basic Grey -Green at heart with the exception of the one below which uses SU- i had to use it as the colour of Bries eyes is the same as my new SU ink and yes i have done a LO exactly like this before but as this is not my album i felt that i could "copy". Another little file again full of photos for Brie to look at.

Now i have 3 pages left and that will have to be about Brie and her friends. It's her 18Th tomorrow and if i am truthful i will have to say that it wont be done by then. Just as well then that Caitlin has got her some other gifts.
Thank you all for your birthday wishes, i had a lovely day yesterday and got spoilt actually i was pretty spoilt all week. Alas i didn't have any birthday cake, i did how ever buy some jeans with some of my money and alas i couldn't even get my leg in them and no i will not take them back another 5kgs and they will be fine.
Ok i am off to try and finish this album.
xx

You made that for your daughter's friend? That is so sweet! I completely understand that pleasure in using your creativity to make something special for another person. I love to do that too!
Happy Birthday! I hope it was a perfect day! You deserve it!

Happy Belated Birthday Linda, I think losing 30.5kgs is a much better birthday present than eating cake - go girl, you're amazing!

wow, what an awesome gift that Brie will treasure for years to come. Gifts made with time and love are so much more meaningful.
Will I recognise you when I see you next? 30 kilos, that is fantastic. I wish I was so motivated. Good on you!
