New Year, New Word

Over at the Imaginisce blog they are having their monthly sketch challenge which for this month included the challenges to use the color blue and one word to describe you/your outlook for 2013.  As you may know for the past few years I have played along with Ali Edwards One Little Word challenge (you can see more information here) and every year I make myself a journal using the word on the cover so as I write in it throughout the year I am reminded of my word and why I chose it.

My word this year is SHINE! (If you come back in a few days I will be explaining more about why I picked this word for 2013)  I really wanted my journal to reflect my word and decided to make a star burst and add lots of shine to it. 

I cut out the star shapes from Imaginisce paper with my Silhouette and added some silver pen to make them stand out a bit more.  I then added some vellum star bursts and a vellum star in the middle. 


I added the word to one of the star bursts and the year on the other side.

To make the whole thing shine I sprayed it with Studio Calico's Mister Huey Calico Shine.
Do you play along with One Little Word and have you picked your word for 2013?  I would love to know what it is!
Thanks for stopping by.

Hey there, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your website in Firefox, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.

I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then
that, very good blog!

Great cover for your book.
I have heard of the "one little word" but not to sure about what its all about. I should read up on it.
I am looking forward to seeing more of your journal.
