thoughts of last year...and hope the the new one.

I've been struggling a  whole lot about the what I want out of the new year...there have been challenges about what your word would be or your new years resolution....I really couldn't think of just one word or something I could stick too.....at Get creative they had/have a challenge for the new year...
challenge....
 is all about freedom and expressing our thoughts
 we want you to  journal about the year that passed 2012 
and the year to come 2013!.....
feel free to make a layout with or without a photo....
go crazy with paint or mists collage, 
stickers, different mediums, pencils, 
doodling zentangling....
your focus is the journalling!...


.I'm not at all artsy so this was a good challenge for me LOL ...it took some time because I had an image in my head but I just couldn't get it on paper so I mainly focused on the words...there is a whole lot of journaling on the back but it was a very private thing....I made sure to have plenty on the front too but there was just so much I wanted to say/get out....


 I tried really hard not to use black even though I really really wanted too so instead I used a blue and pinkish


I also posted this for another freaking scrappy challenge (What will be your new year's resolution this year. What do you wish you could resolve and stick to???) I know I didn't scrap a picture but I scrapped the poem we used for my daughter.....


thank you very much for taking a peek..........

  3. Buffy your take on the challenge is perfect...the aim was for us to reflect on the year that past and journal our desires for 2013.
    I hope 2013 brings you less pain but more good memories.
    Thank you so much for taking part in our challenge at Get Creative
