Motivating Myself

Tonight I have done an inspiration page for myself - of myself!:
The reason its inspirational is because its a picture that was taken a few years ago when I was a bit healthier (and slimmer) than I am now.  I thought it would be useful as a reminder to myself that if I make more effort I could get to be more like how I used to be.  I'm not one for dieting (been there, done that MANY times!), I much prefer the 'live a healthy lifestyle for life' way, which at the moment isn't happening.  I am treating myself just a little too often and could do with making more healthier choices.

I liked this picture because it was taken in the Autumn and I'm even wearing autumny colours myself! (yes, even that waistcoat!! :-)  )   I've stuck the photo on appropriately coloured paper and gone wild with my rubber stamps. I'm thinking that I might add a touch of journalling on the right hand side.

Thanks for looking and for any comments you may leave,
See you tomorrow,

Journal on the back Nikki - honestly this is stunning as is and you should frame it so that it's looking at you. I love it - so inspiring, all that rubber stamping is just gorgeous. I am going to scraplift this one at some point if you don't mind.

Thanks Carmen and K. Yep,Carmen, feel free to scraplift.

The stamp set I used for this was called 'Write On!' and its by BoBunny. (expensive tho!')

I love this, the creative flourishes are fanastic. I need a photo like this for my fridge to keep me on track, except photos of me are rare, and slim photos even more so :)

I've taken note of your suggestions and haven't put any journalling on the front of this.

Thanks for your comments.

Simply discovered your web page through google and I consider this can be a disgrace that you are not ranked more due to the fact that that is a Super post. To switch this I determined to avoid wasting your Blog to my RSS reader and I will try to point out you in one of my posts since you actually deserv extra readers when publishing content material of this high quality.
