Essential Elements: Ribbons (17 of them!)

So I got time to play around in my Photoshop tonight. I took the night off of making layouts, and these ribbons are what I came up with... (And a little secret fairy tells me that tomorrow there will be some matching BOWS!) So snag these ribbons while ya can. They coordinate with the other Scrapbook Essentials I have offered on the blog.



Here is a closeup of the texture...
Other Updates:
I have lost 22 pounds. I am now officially under 250 lbs. and I am starting to really notice it. My old clothes are starting to fit. My face has some hollow areas. My pants are getting baggy in the (pardon my french) bum. And I feel a lot better.

I went to the gym and worked out for a half hour tonight. I did ten minutes on a cardio elliptical trainer, 10 minutes on a treadmill uphill, and ten minutes on the bike. I didn't have a lot of time because my mom was walking on the indoor track with Maia so I could get some alone time on the machines. My mom is great :) They did over a mile of walking and Maia was still gung-ho. And the gym is at the recreation center where Maia's day care is, so I can go work out before I take her home if I want. It's a great idea.

I am LOVING my CT duties... which are very light. I always like to do extra credit though. I was a teacher's pet in school. Here are some layouts I did with the Birthday Girl Kit from Scraphead.

Wow!!! keep up the good work on the weight loss, girl!! there is nothing that tastes so good as feeling better and look'n great!!! I was 248 at my highest...lost 80lbs a few years ago...and what a difference it makes...life is so much better not carrying that around...just amazing. thanks for you kindness to us...your creations add so much variety to my layouts, I wish I knew how to "upload and stuff" so I could show you how I've used your wonderful items. I've been faithful to your blog since I've found it in March...your generosity is heartening in this cold world...thank you.

Thanks so much for the cool ribbons. Your freebies were some of the 1st things I downloaded when I started digi-scrapping. That has been such a long time ago now, and now I even make freebies of my own - stop by my blog to check them out :) Congrats on the weight loss! I fully know how hard it can be, and how it feels when people treat you like you intentionally got fat. I have lost 75lbs now, and still would need to lose at least 75 more to get to where I was before kids. When I was at my heavyest I remember feeling ashamed to buy treats for the kids if they weren't with me for fear of everyone thinking "No wonder she is so huge", even though I never ate like that. Feel free to leave me a note on my blog if you ever want to talk about diet efforts, etc. Congrats again!

First off, Congratulations on your weight loss! I am always so inspired by people who work hard to get in shape - I know it's so difficult to stay motivated and make those tough lifestyle changes that come with losing.

I have been visiting your site quite a bit lately and I LOVE your work! I also think it's great that all your downloads are free. You make such a huge contribution to the digital scrapbooking community on a *daily basis*. Not too many people can say that!

I wanted to let you know that I linked to you on my website, The Scrapbook Hub. I may not always be able to comment on every download (70 feeds to keep up with and adding!), but please know that I am very appreciative of all the work you are doing. Hopefully I can send more people your way through my website!
