Love this Quote..

2/20/2011 ETA:  Someone asked how I did my flowers.  I was inspired by this blue flower and the tutorials on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog.
   I cut six layers from a Spellbinders scalloped circle die, wet them, crinkled them and then layered them.  For the centers I placed a glue dot and covered it in micro beads.

 that was shared with us at my Weight Watchers meeting (another story) a couple of weeks ago:
                                     There are only two choices; make progress or make excuses.
                                                                                                                Ellen Mikesell 

It is obviously very appropriate for weight loss, but I think it could be used for life in general.  Now, I am not a big quote person, but this one really spoke to me.  When I make excuses for not losing weight or not exercising, I am fooling no one but myself.  I may not always make progress but I am determined to quit making excuses.

Anyway, I made another project for the Counterfeit Kit Challenge using this quote.  I made a wall hanging:
I am thrilled with how it turned out.  Except for the red paper, poster board and some dies, everything was from my kit.
My favorite part are the flowers I made.  Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog provided these tutorials and they inspired me to try my hand at it.

 I love the way they came out.  I added black and gold micro beads for the centers.  I think I will hang it right on my fridge.  Maybe that will help?
Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog has a blog hop coming up later in the month that I am going to get ready for next.

Thanks for visiting.
See you soon,
