Guest Design for OUAS

I was thrilled when Nadia asked if I would have time to create a layout with her gorgeous sketch for the Once Upon A Sketch Jan 1st-14th challenge. The criteria along with the sketch is to share your thoughts/feelings or a memorable experience regarding New Year's Eve. For me it used to be about the party. Now that I have kids, it is usually a night we hang out and have a lot of fun together  - but this year was different. 2011 was an exhausting year for me and I wasn't feeling up to doing much celebrating. We spent a quiet evening watching a movie and after the kids went to bed I made my first New Year's resolution (first one ever!).

Here is my layout interpretation of the sketch and the journaling is on the back. I used a few Dusty Attic chipboard pieces and I made the flowers using Green Tara petals and lace, then added some bling. The papers are Bo Bunny (timepiece collection) and those gorgeous butterflies were a beautiful gift from:
http://www.etsy.com/shop/KarlasKreativeKorner

Journaling reads: "This is me 3 years ago, the last time I didn't mind being photographed. As the years go by it is inevitable that more lines start appearing on our faces. I'd like to say that I have more laugh lines now... but the truth is the frown lines seem to be more prominent. My motto for 2012 is more laugh lines, less frown lines. This means some changes in my lifestyle will need to occur. I don't do well with change - but life is too short to not have the time to truly enjoy the moments that make you smile".

Here is a close-up of the flowers:

I rotated the beautiful sketch like so:
It's not too late to enter the challenge!

You are beautiful woman!

Lynn Shaffer said...

You are stunning! Laugh lines are always better I agree! But know that you gave me smiling lines when I saw this great page! Thank you for the inspiration!

KarenC Inspired said...

Vicky-for a 1st resolution-you chose a good one! Love your LO. You're using several of my favs. peek-a-boo, crinkled edges, color combination-really nice!

Cindy Gay said...

Very pretty Vicky!

Lisa said...

Stunning. You and your page. My late Aunt used to tell me that it takes more muscles to frown than to smile. It also takes less muscles to flip one finger than it does all 5...go figure. LOL I love your take on the sketch. *raising a glass* Here is to a 2012 full of smiles! Hugs...and tag, you're it.

Shona said...

this is amazing!!!! love every inch of it and LOVE that photo! Amazing take on the sketch sweetie :)

Fran Brunke said...

Beautiful l/o, powerful journalling. I think that as women we get to enjoy our own beauty, too. Each age has its own loveliness, and the trick is to appreciate our beauty as it changes. Cheers.

Lean said...

Oh Vicki! This is gorgeous... you are very pretty on that pic! I sooo wish i could have had time to play along with this challenge at OUAS... i've got a few other projects lined up, but maybe if i micro-manage my time from here until the 14th, i can make it! (I wish I could quit my job!) ha!

Bonnie said...
