New Year...New Outlook

With the new year I decided I wanted to be a healthier me...I am not doing this for nothing else but for me.  It's not a resolution because let's face it those are meant to be broken, it's more of an agreement I'm having with myself.

I plan to eat better and exercise more.  I am doing a mile a day no matter what...I do plan to do other exercises and workouts but at least a mile a day on my treadmill is a must.  No more sodas...and if you know me then you know I love soda.  I am really working hard and I am soda free as of one week so far. Go me!

So to celebrate my first week I completed this layout.  I actually plan to post it up in my craft area as my inspiration, my focus for motivation. lol

I designed the cut file using my cameo and I would love to share it if any of you want it.  I cut it first with cardstock and then I did the same cut with velum just for that extra added something. You can get the cut file HERE.

I mainly used my January Studio Calico kit for this layout.  But added the orange washi from Michaels and the small wooden letters are from Studio Calico as well.
