New Year and New Sketch at OUAS!

**HAPPY NEW YEAR** everyone! May the year ahead be your best one yet. On behalf of my team and my self I wish you all a happy and healthy 2012.

Our very first challenge for 2012 is here.

January 1st Challenge

Journalling Criteria/theme: New Years Eve!

Our theme this time is New year's Eve. We would like you to journal about your feelings around this time of year, or tell us about your most memorable New Year's Eve. Where were you? Who were you with? What did you do? Why is this one memorable? Note: the photo that you use for this challenge does not have to necessarily be from New Years Eve. For example, if you spent New Years Eve with your family you can have a photo of your family taken ANY time of the year.
Remember that you are allowed to also create a card or altered project based on this sketch and instead of the journalling criteria you need to use a quote.

You must combine our journalling criteria/theme with this sketch.


Here's my take on the challenge. This was tough for me, we lost my Father-in-law and our beloved Bulldog last December one day apart, so our New Year's Eve was spend remembering and reflecting about them.
Products used:
Prima Printery papers
Imaginarium Designs chipboard clock, butterfly and alphas
Prima blooms
Kaisercraft blooms
Prima crystal flourish
embossing powders

Patti, this page is so awesome! I love all the elements and your journaling. I've been wanting to use my clock die and you've inspired me to do that with page. Happy New Year...looking forward to seeing all your wonderful creations this year.
