requested we use an old Julie Bonner Sketch. I went for #28 from 2008. I love this sketch. I have done it twice now and twice I really like to LO.
The picture on this sketch is from Scrapjazz's photo challenge to get an "eyes" picture. I had not done that before and dang I think it's terrific. So happy to get it on to a LO.
Adding to the fun and challenge of this LO I took on the BASB challenge to use only one peice of patterned paper. No card stock, no nothing paper:O Words can not express the terror I felt looking at my picture and my sketch and trying to choose just one peice of paper. To be true to the challenge the title is Grunge Board, felt ribbon, what looks like a rub on is actually a plastic sticker, buttons, thread, and I drew the waves on. There are some Skittles in the felt ribbon but they aren't visable in the picture.

This year we had better plans, a road trip to visit Oliver in Allentown, PA... but that didn't work out. Something came up at work and Erik had to work a full day on the 31st
Back to our traditional thing. Only Erik started coughing violently, with a 15 second blackout and so we spent New Year's Eve at the local urgent care. Erik was not happy that I made him go... MRI, CAT scan, Breathing treatment, steroid shot and 3 hours later we were back home. Not the memory I was hoping for, but memorable all the same.
I hope your New Year's was fun and a bit less memorable than mine!
