The Color Room 91

I am always very excited when I get the colors almost spot on with a palette. I feel that I have done it with this layout for the Color Room 91.  I also used products from many manufacturers for this layout which really reminded me why I love these color challenges: it forces me outside of the "collection" box. 

Speaking of collections, I splurged right before Christmas and bought a bunch of stuff.  I dove in shortly after the package arrived and made a couple of new projects!  It sure is nice to have time off from work! 
During my break, I have already tried three different fitness classes at my local YMCA.   My most favorite new class is BodyStep. That class kicks serious butt! Too bad it is not offered at any time that I could normally attend!  I am absolutely loving working out every day. It feels absolutely wonderful and completely luxurious. It's like a mini taste of retirement!  Oh bliss!

I applaud your dedication to the gym but looking forward to that in retirement...insane! I look forward to eating Bonbons on my couch while watching the travel channel during retirement! I welcome my days of happy, fat, and ugly! :)
