Arty Girlz Challenge #27 - Chocolate

My lovely friend Sam is the Guest Designer on the Arty Girlz challenge blog this week so if you've not seen it yet, I urge you to take a look, and if you've not tried it yet, dive in because this week's theme is chocolate! Funnily enough I'm not a great fan of chocolate in the munchy bar sense, but I love chocolate products like ice-cream, sauces, cake....Yum. Which reminds me, anyone been following Willie's Wonky Chocolate Factory? OMG! Divine! I gained 3lbs a week just watching it!! LOL!!

Right then, here's my offering and it's a bit personal. I've just embarked on my latest healthy lifestyle regime - I shan't call it a diet because that conjures up images of counting points and buying branded products that cost twice as much and offer to speed up weight loss - tried it a dozen times, didn't work, so it's back to basics for me and I shall be following a sensible balanced eating plan which means I go back to weighing and measuring and writing it all down, just like in the good old days - Hey, it worked that time!!! So, here's my chocolate tag - chocolate is not part of my new regime so I went for the next yummiest thing which is obviously Jon Bon Jovi - this is one of my own stamps which I made a couple of weeks ago and haven't yet used - till now! The text is to remind me to "Keep the Faith" when the kids come in scoffing bags of crisps and cheese on toast!!!
I had the weirdest dream the other night - I dreamt that I was delivering a baby - it was so creepy because this baby came into the world smiling and I remember telling the mother that it was a little boy and he was smiling, even though only the head was visible at this stage???? I told a friend of mine who said "Ooh, how interesting - it means that you are about to embark on a new project...." which I thought was really spooky because she couldn't have been more spot on!!! All will be revealed shortly - watch this space......!
Thanks for popping in!
