Altered diary

Have you made any New Year’s resolutions? Every year I vow to be more organised – and every year I fail. But this time at least I have a diary to help me along! Santa didn’t bring me a diary so I went out to buy one and was surprised how expensive they were. The groovy retro striped one I fancied was a fiver and I couldn’t bring myself to pay it so, cheapskate that I am, I bought a plain silver one from WHSmith.

Once I got home I regretted my “boring” purchase, so set out to alter it. A few Stampin’ Up!® rub-ons later and here is my diary – it’s certainly unique. I doubt very much that the rub-ons will stand up to being bashed around in my bag for 12 months but I can always scrape them off and start again. Plenty more rub-ons where they came from! You get two sheets in a pack; in this case one sheet of white and one of Chocolate Chip.

So here is my diary, ready and waiting to be filled with lots of Stampin’ Up! workshops – why not book yours today?
