Once Upon A Sketch January 15th Challenge

Wow this month is going so quickly already! Time for another awesome challenge at Once Upon A Sketch. So as well as using one of Nadia's fabulous sketches the journalling criteria for this challenge 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? Or maybe you can journal about your thoughts for the new year. 

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! 

And here is my take on this months challenge...

And here is Nadia's gorgeous sketch...

And up for grabs.......
The winner of this challenge, as voted by the Design Team, will win 60 days access at the Extra Credit level at $30 value at Miss Arts's Papercrafting School  which includes a class by Lisa Valentine called Sweet treats. Lisa will teach you how to leave an impression in the hearts of your loved ones as you whip up a multi-dimensional layout and card from scratch. In 10 easy to follow videos, Lisa instructs students in the use of stencils with molding paste, fussy cutting layers, stamping transparencies to make butterfly embellishments, crafting leaves and adding custom pearls to layouts. Lasting Impressions begins baking up delectable dimension on 1/1/12. 
Here is a sneak of the class..
