Little Angel (Pion Design/Green Tara)

Happy New Year! (I just can't stop saying it, LOL)

The papers I used for this layout are a mix of Pion Design "fairytale of spring" and "studio of memories" collections. The lace, purple gardenias and cherry blossom as well as a pink apple blossom (used as the middle of my handmade flower) are all beautiful Green Tara blooms. The handmade flower was designed to surround and blend with the pink Green Tara apple blossom in the middle. I will be doing a tutorial on this gigantic flower soon so stay tuned :) The bling is ZVA (thanks again to my friend Bonnie for custom ordering!). The title is a wonderful Dusty Attic piece - I will have more in my shop in just a few weeks.  The picture? That's my daughter when she was 9 months old in an egg prop. Thanks for stopping by today!

Once Upon A Sketch PRIZE Sponsor

Happy New Year! I am thrilled to be a sponsor for Once Upon A Sketch for the start of 2012. Not only do I love the sketches and the incredible design team interpretations, but I am also proud to sponsor a site that my scrappy friend Nadia created. It is one of the top sketch challenge sites in industry and definitely embraces the true meaning of preserving memories.

All entries will qualify to randomly win this Dusty Attic chipboard prize pack. You can find a selection of chipboard in my Etsy shop at http://www.etsy.com/shop/vickyalberto. Please note that I have ordered and will be receiving the newest released chipboard styles mid January. I will also be restocking my shop with the most popular pieces at this time. They sell out fast so be sure to check back often!

Here is the beautiful sketch and criteria:
Journalling Criteria/theme: New Years Eve!
New year's Eve is the theme. We would like you to journal about your feelings around this time of year, or tell us about your most memorable New Year's Eve. Where were you? Who were you with? What did you do? Why is this one memorable? Note: the photo that you use for this challenge does not have to necessarily be from New Years Eve. For example, if you spent New Years Eve with your family you can have a photo of your family taken ANY time of the year.
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.
