This layout was done for the Cooking Up Creations scrapbook site as part of being the "Next Crop Chef" winner. I had to design a layout for "Inspirational Sunday" and decided the theme would be about a "game changing" or life altering event. In my example, I used my weight loss surgery experience from three years ago.
The flowers were fun to make. I used Co-ordinations cardstock and ran it through the Wizard with a Cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder, distressing it with sandpaper. Then I cut a spiral out of the paper and wound it around, securing it to the base with a dab of hot glue.
If anyone would like to ask me questions about bariatric surgery or my experience, I would be happy to talk about it. There is a lot to know before that kind of surgery is undertaken, but it certainly has changed my life in a fantastic way.
