2012 celebrated in style!!

Hi There!!

The theme & journalling requirement at Once Upon A Sketch is New Years Eve. I have a heap of holiday photos that I want to scrap so this was a great chance to get started! This is the sketch
And my take on the sketch- I flipped the sketch so I could use a landscape size photo
For me a New Years Eve page has to be bright & loud. Pink Paisle Soiree was the perfect collection for this! I have used a big mash up of colours & patterns which is a bit different from my usual style but I really wanted to create a fun page!

 I used a butterfly from Spotlight, a Prima powder puff in white which I smudged some hot pink paint on. The other flowers are Prima & Kaisercraft
The Prima glitter stars was a great match as an embellishment.
Using a mix of alphas in colour & style & size gives the page a bit of a funky feel

I used some journal spots from the Crate Paper Emmas Shoppe collection

Thanks for looking!
Cheers
