Happy New Year~! January Challenge @ OUAS~!

Good morning and Happy New Year~! 2013 has officially begun and I look forward to many more blessings in the coming year- and wish you all the same :)~!!

And what better way to start off a new month and new year than with a challenge from Once Upon A...Sketch that focuses on "The Start of Something New"! Yep, as always we're motivating you to look a little deeper and get you thinking...what does "the start of something new" mean to you? Are you looking forward to a new baby? Marriage? Home? Career? Or perhaps a whole new you, with a whole new outlook on life? I have a lot of plans ready and written down, which I've recorded on some hidden journaling below my lower photo:

"New Year, New Plan"
I've used the beautiful *NEW* "Secret Admirer" collection from KaiserCraft for this layout. You can find it HERE at the C'est Magnifique store, as well as lots of other new goodies from KaiserCraft HERE~!
**Pink ribbon from Scrapbook Fantasies**


 Here is this month's sketch, created by my dear friend Nadia Cannizzo:

I've rotated the sketch to the left to fit my photos- otherwise followed it very closely!
Here's a closer look:

 My hidden journaling :)



I have an obsession with stamping and using tissue paper...I'm finding I have lots of obsessions...;)

And as always, there are a BOAT LOAD of prizes to be won this month over at Once Upon A...Sketch, with tons of new sponsors and ways to win- so go and see this month's post HERE for full details~!!

Have a wonderful day and Happy New Year to you all~!!

Det er meget smukt, jeg kan godt lide du bruger "sort/hvid" foto, for så er der frit slag i farvevalget, og der er du en mester. knus morkaren.
