Can you believe that it has been an entire year since I launched this blog? I am amazed by what has changed over the last fifty-two weeks. Sometimes, I reach this time of year and wonder what I did with the time but this year I can reflect on the past twelve months and feel a strong sense of accomplishment. I managed to cross off a number of things from my annual "to do" list and smile. I bought and learned a little about my SLR camera (Thanks Karen), I had a kick-ass year teaching, I experienced a few of the restaurants that I hadn't been to in the Comox Valley and the biggest thing of all, we FINALLY moved to Whitehorse Yukon which I've been patiently waiting to do for the past five years. Of course, part of moving here was made even better by the renovations on my new studio which I LOVE!!! This coming year will be a great adventure with classes, crops and learning how to run the office at our farm.
This week's sketch is from Pagemaps by Becky Fleck and it is the last time we'll be featuring her sketches. In the coming year there will only be exclusive Lotus Paperie sketches. If you got new scrap supplies for Christmas, this is a great time to bust 'em out and whip up a page. If you post it to the Flickr group, you will be in the running to win this month's page kit. Go on...you know you wanna!
The DT is still kickin' back and recovering from eggnog & shortbread but Tania managed to submit ANOTHER layout for this week's challenge (I didn't have any time for this one but here's hers)
Also, because the blog is celebrating its first anniversary, I would like to see how many of you lurkers are interested in some free scrap stuff!! I will be doing a RAK for a bit of Blog birthday goodness so leave a comment and the winner will be randomly chosen from the comments left on this post. You can expect things like a Maya Road stamp, ribbon, mini book for you to alter, and anything else, you'll just have to wait and see if you win!! Comments must be received by the end of tomorrow, Saturday the 29th. Good luck!
