January Imaginisce Monthly Challenge

Happy New Year Everyone!

Wow, can you believe that it is 2013?  Totally amazing!!  I am looking forward to an awesome year!  To kick off the New Year Imaginisce has a fantastic monthly challenge for you.  The theme of the challenge is just perfect for the new year.  Choose ONE word that describes you or your outlook for 2013!  How fun is that!

Here are all the details:

The challenge rules are as follows:
1. Create a layout/card using the sketch provided
2. Use at least 75% Imaginisce product
3. Use the color blue somewhere on your project
4. Theme : Pick ONE word that will describe you/your outlook for the year 2013

Here is a look at the awesome sketch from Diana:
Don't you just love this sketch?  I know I do!

This challenge was great for me because I was really thinking that some things in my life needed to change and that I needed some balance in my life.  I wanted to bring back some things in my life that have been put aside because I have been too busy working and being with the kids.  I want to strike a balance between my hobbies as well with my scrapbooking, reading, tennis and finding the time to just RELAX.  So here is my layout with my one word being BALANCE!
For this layout I took a photo of my ipad reading library (not much there but there will be!!) and my new love tennis racket.  For this collection I used the Animal Crackers collection.  For the confetti look I cut out all the circles from the pattern paper.  I think I am going to document how my word of the year goes this year and see how I am doing.  

cardstock - bazzill
paper- imaginisce
buttons- paper trey ink
string - The Stringery
tools- sewing maching Silhouette

You know it was really really weird for me to work on this side of things with Imaginisce because normally I am entering the challenges.  So very cool that one of my dreams has come true!  I hope you stick with me for my this upcoming year as I have the time of my life!!

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I will be back tomorrow with a new project!  See you then!  Have a wonderful and crafty day!
