Wow, where did December go? Oh yes, all the busyness of Christmas made December whizz by in a flash, but we wouldn't want it any other way.
Now that not only a new year but a new month is well and truly started I have the second challenge to share with you for Challenge Yourself. How many of you have promised to look after yourself more, to take more photo's, to try a new hobby or just to focus on the here and now? Some of you may have made a New Years Resolution and some, like the ladies at Challenge YOUrself, have found a One Little Word that we hope will go along way to helping us focus on what is important to us in 2014.

Motivation is my One Little Word for 2014 and it's to help me to try harder at those things in my life that I not so keen on doing like losing those extra pounds that seem to have crept on without too much trouble, getting more organised and those jobs that although need to be done I find myself putting them off until the last possible moment!
I'm loving gold glitter at the moment so I made sure there was at least a sprinkling on this page with my title and it's quite a pastel/ feminine layout (I must have been having a girly moment when I chose the papers!).
I found some gold glitter glue in a box hidden in a draw and danced a little happy dance as I was thinking of buying some, so my butterflies and the little leaves at the bottom got glittered up too!

Now normally I have a few little close-up's to show you but today Blogger must have decided that I could only have one photo on this post because it refused to load any more no matter what I tried. So if you would like to see close-up you will need to click on the one and only pic!

We girls at Challenge YOUrself  were so pleased that we had so many wonderful participants in our first ever challenge and would love to see your take on our second challenge too, so please hop on over to the Challenge YOUrself  blog and see the rest of the DT's creations and find all the details of this challenge.
Remember that YOU need to be in the picture!

See you soon. xx
