Fantasy, Fairies and Food (or rather lack of it)...

Good morning! Did you all have a lovely Easter?
We have a new challenge over at Passion For Promarkers today, FANTASY... so get out those fairies, monsters etc... we wanna see them ALL! We're generously sponsored by Letraset, so pop by the challenge blog to see all the info about the prize and take a peek at the rest of the DT creations! 

Now, I am partial to the odd fairy, and this little sweetie was one I bought last year from Pollycraft, isn't she a darling? I've coloured her with Flexmarkers. She was crying out for a bit of doodling, which I added, but I didn't know what else to add... you can't put flowers in the sky, right? So I drew a sun and a little bird to keep her company, I find myself doing this more and more as I just get stuck and don't know what embellies to add. Anyway I think she turned out ok, and I just love the sentiment... speaking of which brings me to my next topic... FOOD!

Ok, I'm on a diet... yeah I know not great timing what with Easter but well, needs must! It's going ok (ish) but I am struggling from time to time (I've been on it 2 weeks). To be honest, I didn't think I was eating much in the way of calories but I couldn't shift any weight... yeah well do you know how many calories are in a packet of Fox's Crunch Creams?!! Yeah... I know! So anyway, I am counting calories... the weather will (eventually) get nicer and I need to fit into my summer clothes so...

If you want the rainbow, you've gotta put up with the rain!
