Tell us a little about yourself: I'm Patti McCarthy and my family and I live in the province of Alberta, Canada. I have two handsome, energetic boys. I am married to Glenn, who puts up with my endless amounts of scrapbook 'shop talk'. I have pushed myself into working outside my comfort zone and must say I love it! I am addicted to PSE and all the templates, kits and digital elements that go with it!! In my opinion, a girl can never have too much:)
What's your go-to scrapping technique? White space, clusters with lotsa layers! Paint, circles, stitches and fasteners thrown in for good measure make me happy:)
What is your favorite Litabells product?
What's on your wishlist out of Lita's products that you don't already have?
What are your favorite layouts with Lita's stuff (linked for full credits):
My Happy Place Full Kit By Captivated Visions and Litabells Designs
Favorite beverage? Coke/Root Beer - ice cold!What's your favorite non-scrappy activity? Reading of course! Love mystery suspense and good Vampire/Fantasy reads.Where was your last holiday to? A trip to Ontario to see my parents.

Hi, Athena here. It's that time of year when we all vow to take off a couple pounds.I have been at it a few months and I can tell you salad has been my friend since vegetables are not one of my favorites. Salads can be a nutritious and low calorie food choice as long as you don’t overdo it on the dressing! Finding salad dressings that aren't loaded with oil, salt and sugar can be challenging.
Here is a simple little vinaigrette that packs a lot of flavor but very few calories and fat grams to help you lose that fat.
Makes 3 servings (2 Tablespoons each serving)
1/4 teaspon garlic powder
2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 Tablespoon water
Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl and whisk them together well. Keep refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
Per Serving: 11 Calories; trace Fat (29.1% calories from fat); trace Saturated Fat; 1g Protein; 2g Carbohydrate; trace Dietary Fiber; 0mg Cholesterol; 125mg Sodium. Exchanges: 0 Grain(Starch); 0 Lean Meat; 0 Fruit; 0 Fat; 0 Other Carbohydrates.

Pinterest...one of the best internet sites ever! Also one of the biggest time suckers ever....
I like browsing for craft ideas and seriously this place is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!! Type what you're looking for in the search box, sit back and let your eyes revel in the goodness that unfolds!
I searched 'paper" and this is a small selection of what I found that I've repinned for a rainy day:
This gorgeously simple heart garland made out of a dictionary. You can find the tutorial here.
