123 Challenge - January

 I'm a bit excited to share with you today a layout that actually turned out WAY BETTER than I had expected.. lol.. It looks pretty amazing IRL.. :)
It is my entry into the January challenge over at the 123 Challenge Blog..
This layout was created with one purple cardstock base - it matches the dress I am wearing in the photo..
And one piece of newly released 12x12 Kaiser pattern paper.. I had to do a tiny bit of trimming to all of the squares to make them fit with a small purple frame showing..
For the texture part of the challenge I have included Gesso, Clear Impasto, Glossy Accents, distressed edges and because "texture" can sometimes be with the eyes not only by touch, I included some faux stitching around each pp block and glitter.. And the final touch for texture was depth - I did this by included the flowers, 3D'd the days of the week, title and the chipboard doily piece..

I used the word part of the challenge quite differently to what others have.. I have used a photo of ONLY myself and made the journaling about MYSELF... -- However, there is a twist ---
Me, Myself & I
2016; I am going to grab the HAPPY! I am taking it upon myself to make the year positive! So together, "me, myself & I" are looking forward to a great year ahead!
As it mentions in the journaling, I am taking the steps within myself to be positive.. Put out positive vibes and thoughts! I am no longer going to let bad or sad rule my reactions or decisions.. Every day I am going to make a great day! :)

Now back onto the 123 Challenge Blog... I believe they are having a DT call this month.. So if you're a lover of challenges, why not drop on over to the blog, check out the details and then send through an email to Alicia.. Good Luck!
