OUAS June Challenge - Guilty Pleasures

Hi Ladies,
You still have time to enter this month's challenge at Once Upon a Sketch which ends midnight June 25th (Australian Eastern Standard Time).  Click on the link above and prepare to be inspired by all the gorgerous creations from our Design Team and this month's Guest Designers, and while you're there check out all the fabulous prizes up for grabs from our wonderful sponsors.

Theme: What's your guilty pleasure?

Oh yes! We all get some sort of pleasure from something we really shouldn't. What's yours?

Ideas for journalling: scrapping, time alone, food, going to a concert, a T.V show, time in the garden, playing, Facebook, your iphone, shopping, bags, shoes, computer time, designing, creating etc etc

Your layout must incorporate this theme and the sketch below.

Please make sure that we see some sort of journalling on your layouts and please tell us where your journalling is. You are allowed to journal in any language but please tell us where on your page we will find your journalling. Remember journalling has to be a bit more than a title, or a generic comment. 
Hidden journalling is perfectly fine.

The Sweet Life
My guilty pleasure is to indulge in a good cup of coffee and a deliciously decadent piece of cake every once in a while.  If I'm feeling especially naughty it will be a piece of cheesecake, but one of my other favs is orange and almond cake.  As I didn't have an appropriate photo, I downloaded one from the net.

List of Materials:  Prima Lyric and Sunrise Sunset pp's, Prima flowers, MME diecut doily stickers, Basic Grey Serenade Snippets, vintage lace, paper blossoms, metal butterfly, Lindy's Stamp Gang mist, Anna Griffin lace stamp, Tim Holtz distress ink.
