Farewell to Pion Design and 2Crafty (using OUAS sketch + Helmar adhesives)

Today is reveal day for the Once Upon a Sketch January challenge. Today is also my final post as a design team member for two wonderful scrapbook companies, Pion Design (paper) and 2Crafty (chipboard). I would like to thank Pion Design for having me on their fantastic design team for two entire years as well as 2Crafty for the past few months. From the bottom of my heart, thank you so much Jenny and Vanessa from for your generosity and flexibility when my schedule was hectic. I hope our paths will cross again in the future. Here is a layout using the newest Pion collection "Play Time" and some very pretty 2Crafty chippies. I used gesso and chalk ink on the chipboard pieces.

Journaling on the back reads:
I have a wonderful life but am looking to you to point me in the right direction to find my inner child this year and make time for more fun... to create more wonderful memories, love Mom, xoxo (January 2013).

The OUAS theme this month is "the start of something new" and for me that is trying something new... looking at life through my children's eyes. I am an only child and have always been the mature one, the responsible one, blah, blah, etc. I feel like I am missing out on something - more fun. As much as I ADORE scrapping, it is very time consuming and getting in the way a bit of my family fun time... so I need to cut back just a little bit.

Here is the OUAS sketch this month. I used this as a starting point but my layout seemed to take on a life of it's own, LOL.

This project was made using a lot of Helmar goodness. I used the premium craft glue on the paper layers, the 450 quick dry on the flowers, the adhesive runner for the photo and the acid-free glue for the chipboard.
