FCCB Challenge #120: Sunny Days

Hello everyone,

Its another Monday so there is a new challenge up at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog. We are challenging you to make a project with a yellow sun. Although its my week off from the DT this week I wanted to join in with the ladies for two reasons.

1) The theme Sunny Days. I still can't get over the weather in the Cali Bay Area it hasn't rained in months. It always Sunny Days here but we could use some rain.
2) I am celebrating a huge milestone in my weight loss journey. I have been on Weight Watchers for one year. I have lost 52 lbs and I have just reached the top end of my health weight range. I still have 9 lbs to go so my journey is not over just yet!

So I made this card to celebrate me! I have been enjoying the sunny days hiking in the Bay Area hills (with girlfriends).

 I also made the card interactive by making the sun a slider moving up over the hills.

I also used one of My Pink Stamper's sentiments from her Never Give Up set. When I saw this set I just had to have it because this particular sentiment has been my mantra throughout my journey. 

Here are some before and after photos of me. In the first photo I cutting from a Gypsy for the first time. The second was taken in December 2011 and the last photo shows me with one of my hiking girlfriends about a three weeks ago.

What was used:
Cricut Pink Journey (walker)
Don Juan (sun)
Everyday Paperdolls (grass, hills and path)
Stand and Salute (clouds)
My Pink Stamper Never Give Up Stamp set
Studio G $1 punches (for the flowers)
Inks and Stickles
Recollections Basics Light Blue Distressed Paper
Cardstock: Recollections and We R Memory Keepers

I hope you will join in with us this week. I can't wait to see what you will come up with.
Happy Scrapping!
