New storage for CC

I have 122 Cartridges  mostly for my Expression and 19 of those are for my Imagine.  Also i have some that was pre loaded for my Gypsy.  So I have a storage problem.  I will have extra room when i get done with these photo boxes I bought at Hobby Lobby.  My husband had some things he needed shredded from work so when i saw all the folders i thought awww haaaa.  So i cut my folders in half making 2 smaller folders for my boxes  Each folder holds 2 so i can get 24 Cricut Cart books in one.  I used Stampin Up tab punch to make my tabs.  I cut one side 7 1/4"  and the other side 8 1/4"  and on the longer side i score at 3 3/4" turn it around and score at 3 3/4" .  Then i place my tab.  I went on Notepad and made 2 of each number  cut them out with a heart punch and label the book and the cart.  Then i printed up 3 copies of the list of how they were in the box.    I have done 2 boxes already and cleared out 48 boxes of cartridges.  Well and i put my empty cart boxes in a huge carton and stuffed in the closet.  I can decorate them boxes at xmas time and use as gift boxes.   So i have done my recylce job for the day.

This is my second entry.  I thought she turned out really well.  She is a digi I ordered on line and I can't remember who.  MY memory is so bad.  Maybe some one will recognize where it came from and i can give due credit.  I need a way to figure out who's is who.  Any suggestions?  For the coloring i used my colored pencils with Sansodor.  The Stamp is from MYCreativeTime Emma's stamp set Just a Little Note to Say.... The ink is Cherry Cobbler from STAMPIN UP.  I stamped the image with black  StazOn.
I used a Martha Stewart border punch on the side.

I cut these stars from my George Cartridge. I scored these by starting at each point and going straight down to the v section right below  do each pt this way and when done fold them all.  I saw this some where about a year ago and i can't remember where i saw it at so this is by no means my idea just the coloring of them.  I just thought they turned out pretty. . . I used Emma's My Creative Time stamp set Encouraging Quotes  for the little stars stamped.

Update on My Dieting.

I am now at 28.5 pounds  that I have lost.  I started my dieting back in Feb.  I started losing fast, and I worked at it really hard and the first 16 pounds went fast.  But I have slowed down.  But I am still losing.
Every now and then I cheat on my diet which is why the slow down but  it also helps about getting discouraged so that I don't quit.  I would like to lose another 12 pounds which is gonna take
a little bit more effort on my part.  I got a family gathering at the end of the month and thats my goal to lose at least 10 to 12 pounds. All for now. 

"MAKE A SPLASH" Challenge #99 House Mouse

This is my entry for  Make a Splash any thing with water and use one of House Mouse and friends, Happy Hoppers or Gruffies images.  Link back to their site.  I made my sentiment thru my note pad.  Used a stampin up window punch cut it back.  Used green brads from Hobby Lobby.  The flower i cut with my small I-top punch. sprayed them with water and crunched them up.  I learned this technique from Angelica over at Peach Keen she has a video.  Although i did mine a tad different..I also added something to the stamp I added the 3 little bubbles by the bunnies behind., to go with the sentiment i put on it.  I used colored pencils to color with.  The ink around the edges is black by colorbox
and the other ink is Stazon (royal purple)
