Yay! It's time for a new reveal at Once Upon a Sketch
so head on over and take a look at the LOVERLY LAYOUTS
BY ALL THE LOVERLY LADIES OVER THERE...
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?
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 journaling criteria you need to use a quote.
You must combine our journalling criteria/theme with this sketch.

And AT LAST (LOL!!) here is my interpretation of the sketch!
I decided on a "Year in Review" layout with some
collage photos repeated a number of times -
(thanks to my printer continually printing out half a
photo at a time while I was trying to repair it -
grrrr! - this was easy to achieve!!
There wasn't much room for embellishments but I prettied
it up as much as I could using all sorts of pretties!
Yup that is a picture of me smooching -
wonder who will spot that?!?
