Jump In!

(Borrowed from my Suzy Toronto 2013 Calendar)

Follow your dreams...
with your arms flailing, hair flying, 
and screaming at the TOP of your lungs!!!
Do not take the advice of those old sages and wait until you can "walk confidently in the direction of your dreams."  If you do, you'll never take the first step.  Instead, leap and learn to fly on the way down.  (And for heaven's sake, don't wait until you lose ten pounds!)
NOW is the time to jump in with both feet...
arms flailing, hair flying, and screaming at the top of your lungs,
"I CAN DO THIS!"
You don't have to believe it...
you just have to do it.
Start now!

So...with that being said...I jumped in with both feet...or, errrr, fingers, :-)
I wanted to make something NEW with CTMH's new Laughing Lola paper. 
(I LOVE the name...just makes me smile!) :-)
I started by digging through some old patterns that I had stashed away.  When I originally found it years ago, it seemed very overwhelming, but kept it in my stash because it was SO cute!  
So, the cutting and pasting and mistake making and correcting and re-measuring and screaming "I CAN DO THIS!" and oh, so, lovely satisfaction commenced! 

Here is the end project...and I LOOOOOOVE it!!!!  Hope you do to!







Now...jump in with both feet!  
Happy creating!
