WW – 1 Year Lifetime Anniversary

WW - 1 Year Lifetime Anniversary

This week I am celebrating my 1 Year Anniversary of being a Weight Watchers Lifetime Member! I find that there isn’t much difference between Maintaining and Losing. I still pre-track my meals, I still weigh and measure my food, I still get out and walk. I just have a few more points to use – which usually gets put towards chocolate. My main meals haven’t changed much. I still go to the weekly meetings. I find this gives me accountability. As well, if I did eat a lot one week, I know on Thursday the slate is wiped clean and I can continue on! If I didn’t continue to go to Weight Watchers, I know I would have definitely gained back some of the weight! Weight Watchers teaches you that this is a Lifestyle, not a Diet. Since it took me 19 months to lose my 80lbs, it gave me the time to learn new Lifestyle Habits.

I still think Weight Watchers is a wonderful program! If you were thinking about joining I highly recommend it! If you are in the program and are questioning it – Keep going!! You are doing yourself a favour of taking the time to make yourself healthier, and in doing so you will feel proud and in control!! Anyone can do it, but you need to want to do it!!

Ep. 989 – Hazel and Ruby Chalk Art Kit

Scrap Time - Ep. 989 - Hazel and Ruby Chalk Art Kit

Today I am showing you the Hazel and Ruby Chalk Art Kit. In the Kit you get: a chalk slate, chalkboard cleaner, muslin bag with 4 pieces of chalk, chalk pencil, chalk marker and a chalk cloth, all packaged in a cute white with gold dot box! I have used the Patisserie Stencil/Masks with the Chalk Art Kit! You want to start by seasoning your chalkboard. Simply take your chalk on the side and cover the whole board! Then use the cloth the remove the chalk. Next I placed my letters on the chalk slate and then traced around them using the chalk pencil. I then removed the letters and coloured them in using the chalk. I added a few dots in the corners and I was done!

WDW – Fastpass+ – Magic Kingdom

WDW March 2013

Fastpass+ is the new Fastpass System at Walt Disney World. It allows you to book 3 Fastpasses for each day of your vacation, 2 months in advance. So it takes a bit of planning on your part. I decide in advance which parks we will be going to each day. My decision is usually based on which resort we are staying at. This also helps me plan out which restaurant to have lunch and/or dinner at. So, knowing which Park I will be visiting, I can now decide which attractions I would like a Fastpass+ for!

WDW - March 2014

Magic Kingdom has the biggest selection of choices! As I mentioned, you can book 3 Fastpass+/day in advance. You will receive a 1 hour window to go to the ride and not have to wait in the Stand-by line. However, once you use up those 3 Fastpass+, you can then stop by a Fastpass+ kiosk to book another Fastpass+ for that day. This allows you to get more Fastpasses as well as to get a Fastpass+ at another park, if you are park hopping! You can no longer get a Fastpass from a machine by the ride. It is all done online!

WDW - March 2014

So what are the best choices to get a Fastpass+ for? Definitely the Rollercoasters! Space Mountain always has a pretty long stand by line!

Big Thunder Mountain

As well as Big Thunder Mountain Railroad!

WDW - March 2014

The Seven Dwarves Mine Train just opened earlier this year, so you will want a Fastpass+ for that one!

WDW - March 2014

Enchanted Tales With Belle is a slow moving line, so I would recommend a Fastpass+ for that attraction.

WDW - March 2014

Peter Pan’s Flight is one of my favourite attractions, and always has a 45 minute stand-by line! So I always get a Fastpass+ so I can go on it.

WDW - March 2014

The latest attraction to get a Fastpass+ is the Elsa and Anna Meet and Greet! If meeting Elsa and Anna is on your list definitely get a Fastpass+ for that!! Otherwise you may have to wait hours, or they may close the line and you may not get to meet them.

Splash Mountain

Finally, the last one I would recommend is Splash Mountain. I don’t ride this attraction, but there is usually a really long stand-by line.

WDW - March 2014

As well, if you want to have lunch at Be Our Guest, I would highly recommend the Fastpass+ for that. Recently, they were testing only allowing guest with Fastpasses to actually eat there at lunch! This is a separate Fastpass+ and you can access it at: https://beourguestlunch.disney.go.com

WDW March 2013

Attractions that you don’t need a Fastpass+ for are: Ariel’s Grotto, the Branstormer, Buzz Lightyear, Dumbo, Haunted Mansion, It’s a Small World, Jungle Cruise, Mad Tea Party, Magic Carpets of Aladdin, Many Adventures of Winnie The Pooh, Mickey’s PhilharMagic, Monster’s Ink, Pirates of the Caribbean, Tomorrowland Speedway, Mickey’s Meet and Greet and Under the Sea.

WDW - March 2014

You can also get Fastpass+ for the Parades and for Wishes. That isn’t something I would spend my 1 of 3 Fastpass+ on, but that is a decision you would have to make. If I would choose 1 parade it would be the Festival of Fantasy.

Disney World

Now, if you have small children and the Roller coasters aren’t your thing, then maybe get a Fastpass+ for Winnie the Pooh and Under the Sea, along with Peter Pan!

WDW - March 2014

If you aren’t travelling with little children then my tip for you is to get to the Magic Kingdom around 7pm and you can walk onto many of the rides! Gemma and I go to the Magic Kingdom from around 7pm to close and do every ride that we wish to!

What are your favourite attractions at the Magic Kingdom?

Ep. 988 – Tim Holtz Sizzix Honeycomb Frameworks Die

Scrap Time

Today I am using the Tim Holtz Sizzix Honeycomb Frameworks Die! I started by adhering a collage sheet to the Grungepaper using Multi-Medium. Once the medium was dry, I cut out a pile of hexagons from the Honeycomb Frameworks Die. I also cut out some hexagons from the paper that wasn’t adhered to the Grungepaper. Originally I was going to use the pieces, as is, on my art journal page. But as my page progressed, I decided to paint over all of the hexagons and use them as texture. Some of them had raised texture that you could still see after they were painted. With the combination of the Grungepaper, flat paper and texture, it made for an interesting background. I then took a texture stamp and Black Archival Ink and stamped on the raised hexagons, just to add another layer of interest.

Scrap Time - Ep. 988 - Tim Holtz Sizzix Honeycomb Frameworks Die

This technique can be used on many projects including Art Journal Pages, Cards, Scrapbook Layouts and 3D projects! I like the Frameworks dies since you can cut multiple shapes at once, as well as they cut through many different materials!
