The Diet Starts Here

As soon as I saw this Mo Manning digi I thought OMG that's me!! & from reading her Facebook page I'm not on my own. How many of us get on the scales regularly & pray that we've got away with that 'very large' bar of chocolate or that yummy Danish, or both!!

Well this is my year to change all that (I'm sure I said that at the beginning of 2010!! (& 2009!!)) & this time I mean business. As the saying on the calendar goes

& I've certainly tried one more time . . . . . . . time & time again lol!!

This was a total contrast to my last project & I loved making it.

I've followed the sketch at Wild Orchid Crafts.

The papers & cardstock are once again from Stampin Up. The lace & ribbon are from my stash as are the pearls. The flowers are punched using the Marianne Creatables punch & emboss & finished off with more pearls. The mini calendars are from the Anita's range.

I'm entering this in the following challenges

Wild Orchid Challenges - Sketch followed on top part of calendar

Craft Your Passion - Anything goes

One Stop Craft Challenge - New Beginnings (starting a diet :-) )

Papertake Weekly - Anything goes - with lace

Simon Says Challenge - New Beginnings (the diet again!!)

Thanks for looking.
