Inspired by words

Hi everyone!!

Can I wish you all a very happy New Year?! :)
Looking back, I had an awesome year. I already made a round up in my Thanksgiving post so I won't start over again, but yes, it was a nice year for me and I am glad that you are here to follow along with me where my creative endeavors bring me. :)

I wish you, and me, for 2014, success, health, love, joy and happiness and maybe some more sleep…. :) May you all have the time of your life. Every Week. Life is short and we have to make the most of it. All the time.

ok, today, on this last day of 2013, I'd like to show you a page that I made for Get it Scrapped for an assignment called: inspired by words.

Where do you go when you need good words? I turn to my board on Pinterest. :)
And the quote that spoke to me the day I decided to make a page was:

Always believe that something wonderful is about to happen.

And when I read it, I associated it with when we left Switzerland. Maybe you heard me say that on the Paperclipping roundtable, but when I was living there, I wasn't happy so when Patrick told me that we were leaving, oh my gosh, it should have been the best feeling ever, right?! Well, I was rather afraid of what we were getting us into. I had people telling me we were crazy to leave, some other who were saying we had everything we needed in Switzerland…. and all the thoughts of what would and could happen with the move, and while abroad, and starting over again, and, all that with a 3 months old baby and a 2,5 year old. It was scary. But at that time, I repeated to myself "it will be great!" and really, THAT'S THE BEST THING THAT COULD HAPPEN TO ME (US). Even with all the difficulties it brought us. So anyway, I think it was about time that I make a page about that very moment where we were at the airport and when we left….. bitter sweet moment….

The background paper is a memory file from Heidi Swapp, mounted on a color magic piece of card stock that I left white.

The title was cut with my Silhouette and stitched.

Lots of layering of fabric frame, washi tape, papers, flair, color shine splatters. :)

Layering. :)

There you go guys!! :) Now, go have a nice day and a great evening!!! Don't party too hard, but do take advantage of this special evening!!
And I'll see you again in the New Year!!!!

Happy New Year!!!! :)
