Keep calm and have a cupcake!

There must be keep calm and... well just about everything out there but I love this one the most.. Keep calm and have a cupcake!
I took an old tile, attached a hook to the back and rubber pads to stop it damaging the wall. Then I found some scrapbook paper that matched the pink of the keep calm image... a few coats of modpodge and hours later I have a completed tile to hang up in the kitchen above our heart chalkboard.

Sometimes I just wish i could keep calm and have a cupcake, especially as I'm now in panic with my uni exams less than a week away... but a cupcake would be breaking my diet regime :(
