Anyone need a diet buddy? Yes, that is my question. I need to lose about 12 pounds, which doesn't sound like much, but it is difficult for me! I have tried every diet and the only one that works for me is Weight Watchers. I joined online for a while and just do it on my own now. I have heart disease and diabetes in my family, so I try to keep it under control to avoid all of that. Write me an email if you are at about the same point and want to share some recipes etc. is a freebie for today. It has room for a lot of little photos. I hope you like it!

Love the blocked style of this template. This definitely is another star in your crown. By using the various sizes, you show that us rectangular scrappers can have the designs for the larger sizes. So beautiful. I know it will be fun to use this in the future. Again, thanks for sharing.

I can so relate! I need to lose 9 lbs and am trying once again to do WW on my own. I have every diet book known to man and just waiting for something to "click".

DigiScrappin helps me to keep my mind off eating, but the kids arguing, homework rushes, etc. cause me to eat when I'm not hungry.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I tend to use lots of photos on a page & there aren't a lot of this type of templates out there.

Thank you Andrea!

So cute! I love templates that help me place lots of photos! I'm down 27.5 lbs, but I've got 33 more to go! Bleh! I'm doing WW too and it has worked pretty well so far. This is the first time I've done it and I'm pleased with the results. I lost about 50 lbs 6 years ago and swore I'd never gain it back! Ha! Then, I got married, started teaching school, and had a baby and BAM! There is was again. So here I go again! And no matter how much you have to lose, it still stinks when you can't get anything to work!

Thank you for the template - I take too many pictures and need lots of spaces for photos.
I too need to loose weight, more like 40 or 50 lbs instead of 12. I have lost about 20 over the last year. Truly it isn't easy.

First let me say a HUGE thank you for the templates you have no idea of how much they help hillbillies like me to create....

Secondly..I too need to lose health isnt the greatest..I have a bad heart,am diabetic with a slew of others they have attached to me in the last few years....I myself need a partner for if you are ready and really serious....I am right here....and would be honored to help you help me....diets for me are a joke mainly because of my diabetes...but I do have lots of recipes,ideas and do alot of mediatation. Yell at me when you get a chance its hectic at my house at the moment...Have a new grandbaby...1 month old today..his mommy had to have her gallbladder taken out so right now I do it all...but thats ok.
Again thanks for all you share with is greatly appreciated..huggies...Sheri

I came here for the eggs-template (too late) but found the "so many pictures... so little time" one which seems great too. Thank you!

My Little Ironies

  • I just had to tell my daughter that there was little probability that she could do eighty chores in two hours and 10 minutes to earn a giant lot of pet shops on Ebay that she wants to earn before the auction closes. That's at two chores per dollar. :)
  • We are helping my father sell an old vehicle and what do we find in the glove unused 12 guage shotgun shell...that's my Dad!!
  • How does a three year old end up at church with no underwear on, especially when you dressed him and you know he had underwear on at one point during the morning?
  • The root of all toilet clogging evil is apparently a ball point pen and it's nearly impossible to dislodge one of those from the inside of a toilet.
  • You know you have to do some serious laundry when you actually consider wearing your 11 year old daughter's Hannah Montana shirt.
  • My 6 year old daughter got a comb stuck in her hair and we had to cut the comb into little bits to get it out of her hair.
  • My kids keep breaking the toilet seats! I guess I need a bulk package of those too!
  • Chocolate chips are not a food group.
  • My toilet seat says "Hailee" on it!
  • If there's work to be done, all of the kids need to use the bathroom or get a drink.

  • My sand pile is full of socks!
  • The key to my treadmill is missing again...can I just purchase a bulk package of them???
  • I fixed my daughter's glasses with JB Weld!
  • I have a pile of sand on my leather couch.
  • My daughter lost her glasses in the snow on the way home from school in January. Someone found them in March and turned them into the school office! Amazingly enough, the school remembered we lost them in January. Wow!
  • Just when I think he knows better, my 10 year old son plugs the bathroom sink and the emergency drain in the sink basin to soak his grow creature, turns on the water, and forgets about it until we notice water flooding out from under the bathroom door! And yes, he locked the door so no one would bother the grow creature!!
  • It's time for another worn out pair of the hubby's pants to disappear! Aren't kids suppose to be the only ones who are attached to clothing?
  • My 4 year old says she needs "peace and quite"!!!!!
  • My Husband says there's a perfectly good reason for the leatherman being in my dish drainer.
  • I have a leatherman (fancy pocket knife) in my dish drainer. I don't know why.
  • My kids are storing a tumble weed in my garage for the winter!
  • My 10 year old son informed me that people have only discovered about half of the world's caves (thank you BBC and planet earth!)
  • My baby's car seat is full of finely crushed graham crackers (?? Little babies don't eat graham crackers)!
  • My husband's shoes are filled with Mr. Potato Head parts!
  • My two year old thinks the new baby swing is for him! He can even climb in by himself and work all the controls. Boy, does he have a rude awakening coming!!
  • I have a giant mud hole in my back yard.
  • My vacuum is fully of plastic easter grass.
  • My kids are too full to finish their dinner, but they have plenty of room left for cake!
  • I have a giant laundry basket full of socks, and we can't find a single match!
  • Miscellaneous items found while cleaning out my kids' toy box include a flashlight, rocks (no suprise), a sea shell (we don't live by the sea), a drill bit, a stapler, and some tree bark!
  • My daughter's medical bills added up to about $18,000, but we got a free sippy cup and a ball signed by the Utah JAZZ Dancers!
  • I put safety locks on the tops of my outside doors to keep my three year old from escaping and she figured out how to open them with a broom in approximately five minutes.
  • I bought the EXPENSIVE vacuum this time only to find that my 3-year-old took it apart with a screwdriver!
  • I haven't showered for 3 days, but my house is clean!
  • I have 38 winter gloves of various sizes in my coat closet and none of them match.
  • We're out of peanut butter because my husband used the rest to catch a mouse in our garage!
  • Yes, my son won 1st place in the science fair at school, but he didn't turn in half of his assignments this term?
