Sistahs of the Traveling Tee and Scrapbook Layout

Hi Everyone! Before I discuss my layout, I wanted to tell you a little bit about a new blog site that me, Jen (Pieces of Me), and Ellie (Scrabookmama) decided to set up to help us on our weight loss journey called "Sistahs of the Traveling Tee". Stop by and check out the site!! Click on the title above or the button to the right ---------------------->

What is it about and why the title "Sistahs of the Traveling Tee"? Okay, the blog site is a team site in which those who want to participate post their weight loss journey. . .basically, we support one another and post our progress, our goals, and our tribulations! It's really difficult to lose weight when you don't have the support from others sorting of pushing you along.

Well. . .why the title? Well, did anyone watch the movie "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants"? If you did, it's a similar concept but rather than passing a pair of jeans around, we decided to pass along a T-shirt because well, we all can't fit the same jeans! LOL! If you didn't see the movie, well it's about a group of friends who lived different lives in different parts of the world and they passed to one another a secondhand jeans. As the movie progress, it tells the story of each girls journey through life while they had possession of the jeans.

Right now, I have the T-shirt! Actually, I still need to buy it. We're still working on the logistics of the T-shirt but we plan to pass the T-shirt to one another and sign it with our name, the date, and our location as we go through our weight loss journey. Eventually, we would like to pass the t-shirt around to more than the 3 of us. . .so, if you are interested in walking this journey with us, let me, Jen, or Ellie know and we'll hook you up!! LOL!

Now to my scrapbook layout! You're asking, "Whoa. . .what's going on with your hair, Maria"? LOL! Well, this picture was taken when I was 21 years old. Holy! That was a long time ago. Spiral perms were the jazz back then! I naturally have straight hair but when you have straight hair, you want have curly hair. Luckily, the trend right now is straight hair so I don't really have to do much to my hair! LOL! Back then it was all about applying gel to your hair to keep the spiral curls intact. I actually loved my hair back then! Now, I look at the photo . . . and I laugh!

The picture was taken while me and a few friends were at a bar! We were "party" girls back then! LOL! Not no more. I don't remember the last time I drank alcohol . ..I think several years. We had so much fun back then! My friend Charmayne (the girl on the left) went out every weekend. We were good girls but we knew how to have fun!!

I used the CTMH Whoops-A-Daisy Level 2 Paper Packet to create this layout! Nothing much else to the layout!

Anyway, be sure to check out our weight loss blog site "Sistahs of the Traveling Tee"! We would love to hear from all of you!!

I like when you do layouts Maria, came on not even wine, you live in the wine land :)

Oh my, you were victim to the spiral perms too?! Late 80's early 90's styles? My hair used to stick up at least 1 1/2 inches and I'd use hella hairspray to keep it there. What were we thinking? Good luck to all of you on your weight loss journey. I'm right there with you! I'm on a constant battle losing the 5 pounds that keep finding me. I lose it, I gain it back, I lose it, I gain it back. Argh!
