A Little Of This, A Lot Of That | A Scrapbook Layout

Hurray! Back to the crafty postings…

When I returned to work last summer, I really started focusing on my health again. More fruits and veggies, less processed foods. I started taking a salad to work every day for lunch and it’s become such a habit that I have a hard time saying yes to eating out when co-workers ask. Sometimes the need to socialize overpowers the need to consume veggies, but more often than not, I eat my salad.

This mandarin orange/cranberry/feta/walnut salad is my current favorite, so I snapped a photo to document this momentous achievement of actually eating veggies every day. I’m also loving Greek yogurt with berries, but only get to fix it for breakfast on the weekends.

This layout was all about the pre-made cards. The “This” and “That” cards came from the Pebbles Seen and Noted pack of 3×4 cards. The smaller square cards come from the Project Life Just Add Water core kit. And it’s older, but I am still loving the colors in these papers from the Carta Bella Hello Again collection. I used the Hello Chevron and the Small Floral papers. These papers have cardstock weight and a cool texture to them. They are so yummy to work with!

So what kind of good habits do you fall into during the summer? Are you documenting them?

Thanks for stopping by today!




  1. Kudos to you for eating veggies everyday! Robbie & I have both been working at making healthier choices this year – eating less, adding more fruits & veggies, exercising more . . . it’s paying off as I’ve finally lost 17 pounds & Robbie’s down 40! This summer we’re even doing our own yardwork again instead of hiring someone to do it!

    • That is awesome Melissa. Congrats to you and Robbie! 🙂 I have dropped some weight too — though not as much as I would like! But right up until my surgery I was feeling really good and that’s the most important thing. I’m pretty sure that once I can really work out again things might start getting better. Just can’t physically do much yet with out it hurting. Ugh. Keep up the good work.

  2. Such a lovely layout.
    I think it is great to document these types of things.
    I love the colours in your page, and the photos of the food just pop out.
    Actually I really want to try this salad now 😉

  3. So I seriously need to try that salad, sounds delish. Love the colours you chose and you’re embellishment clusters

  4. Love this layout, perfect for summer!!! I eat a salad for lunch every day too. Right now I’m on a grilled chicken Cesar kick.

  5. Wonderful layout, very inspiring. It’s fun to use those cards on a regular layout. I love to layer with them too. I have also been documenting the everyday here at my home and those photos are the ones I’m most drawn to when it’s time to start a new layout. Glad to see you back and posting your layouts.

  6. Love the colors
    My new habit is walking more. With my new job their campus is HUGE so it makes it easy to do.

    Glad your back online 🙂

  7. Fun page, Tammy!!
    And yay for healthier eating! It’s hard in the beginning I think. 🙂

  8. great layout! I need to do a “food” page too… the hubbs and I went wheat free 2 months ago and have cut out all processed foods and are switching to grass fed meats and dairy, Its a journey for sure!
