Countdown to 2012

I have been trying to get a bit of scrapping done this week before we go off on our summer holiday. This week the theme at 'Once Upon a Sketch' is to journal about your New Years Eve memories. These photos were mostly taken using my i-phone and the quality is not great so I made a collage from them and printed them out in a smaller size that i would normally. I love how i am able to fit 6 photos into a 6x8" area and record more of the little details that made up our family's New Years Eve.
My papers are again the wonderful October Afternoon 'Farmhouse' range and the clock is from 'Twiddlybitz' and has been in my stash for ages waiting for the 'right' LO. this one was perfect. I rubbed gold metallic paste onto it to give it a metallic look. Scotty Crafy sell trays of metallic pastes in different colours for around $13.50. I have used and used mine! They are a very quick and easy way to give any element a metallic look. The gorgeous Prima flower was the finishing touch. i needed to add a lot of journaling to this page so i wrote it on a journaling card and tucked it behind the flower and photo collage.
