Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: make a plan.
At first I thought I can't take part in this week's challenge, I don't have a planner, just a calendar on the wall, and I don't really plan much, my life is very boring ;-) lol
But I do host a dinner club every Friday, they pay the groceries, I cook them, but at 6 euro per person for a 3 course meal it takes quite a lot of planning.
Looking through the ads to see what is on offer, then make a meal out of that, a soup and a dessert.
I wish we had coupons here like on extreme couponing...but alas.
Anyway to plan all this I make a grocery list, I calculate costs and try to squeeze it in budget.
I decided I could use a prettier notebook wherein I plan my shopping trips.
I've pimped it as best as I could, by covering it with cardstock and applying gesso, then coloring it with Distress ink diluted with Winsor & Newton iridescerent medium, then splattered it with spray stains in the same colors and with brushed pewter and picket fence.
Rummaged through my trinket box full of die cuts extra and diecut a bunchmore out of vellum, cardstock and glitter paper. I've a mix of snowflakes, hearts and stars in silver, gold, blue, lilac, purple and a pale blue almost white .
Stuck them down with glue or gluedots and trimmed the edges.
