January 15th Challenge

Journalling Criteria
HELLO 2012 or GOODBYE 2011? 

 For this challenge, the journalling theme is new beginnings, upcoming adventures but also saying goodbye to yet another year.. Are you glad 2011 is over? Are you looking forward to starting fresh in 2012? What are your goals or resolutions for the year ahead? What are you most looking forward to? Or maybe you can journal about your thoughts for the new year. 

Things that you can journal about: a new job, house, baby or new scrapping adventures or Design Teams. Are you taking time off work? Are you planning a holiday somewhere? Maybe your children are starting school or you are getting a new pet. Or you could tell us why you are glad 2011 is over or why you will miss it. Anything goes really!

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. **

another amazing creative sketch from the beautiful Nadia Cannizzo.

I used the butterfly, heart, and frame. 

 this heart is covered in  7Gypsies tissue paper .. love this look .

I added some tags with my goals and intentions for 2012 .
