LIM week 11- acetate

Oh dear, my heart sank when I read this weeks Less is More challenge yesterday morning. It was not the use of acetate but to do it with a LIM style. This is what I have come up with and I am not sure I have followed the LIM ethos!

Thanks for all the good wishes on my weight loss. Unfortunately I fell off the wagon this weekend due to the mexican meal and the drinks on two nights. Those of you who asked what Corrie the play was like - brilliant! There are only 6 actors and they take all the parts through the ages. I was amazed how they slipped in and out of each character (and costumes) they had all the mannerisms and so even before they spoke you knew which character it was. Also the lady behind me felt she had to announce it to everyone, so we were in no doubt! The best of the accents was Hilda Ogden, she really had her down to a tee and the chap who did Roy Cropper was good too.
