Hi everyone,

It's Monday again and this week the Simon Says Monday Challenge blog has a new theme for you, and it's called "Due Date." What important things are there on your to do list, maybe you can pimp a calendar, or create something to keep track of your appointments and due dates. Share it with us!

I'm always looking for ways to be and stay organized. Have devoted several projects to it. I always try them out for a while, but I actually always go back to a piece of paper to write my things to do on. That doesn't stop me to constantly search for and try something new. I've created for this challenge a weekly planner, with each day of the week a little card. These cards have magnetic material on the back and so has the foam board standard. So I can easily pick up the card, adjust it if I want and when the day is over it goes back at the and and all the other cards moved a spot. This way I always have a overview of the week.

The cards I made by first making the background with Peacock Feathers and Cracked Pistacio Distress Ink and then I used different stencils with Peacock Feathers and Cracked Pistacio Distress Stain Spray. I don't often use the same color in the background to create a monochromatic look, now I have seen the result, I don't really understand why. It's a great effect! Something for my creative inspiration list.

The activities also include magnetic material and can picked up and placed onto another day, if needed. I'm curious if this planner is going to help me get rid off the little notes. Time will tell!

To join in all you need to do is make a project that fits this weeks challenge and you can be the winner of the $50 gift voucher that our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp offers. This prize will go to a random entry. So go over to the Stamp and Show Monday Challenge blog, let the DT members inspire you and join in the fun!

Thank you for stopping by! Love to see you next time!
