"One More Dawn"

I have been fun playing around with my new "Winter Wishes" scrapbook kit that my sister gave me for Christmas.  I came across a really cool sketch made by Karolina, aka "Drycha," at and was inspired to make a layout using it.  Here it is:

Another contributing factor in the making of my page is the fact that we are probably going to see the move, Les Miserables tomorrow night.  One of my favorite songs from the play is "One Day More!  I was prompted to use the lyrics after seeing and photographing the sunrise this morning.  I am always up early, went out to take some pictures because it was so beautiful!!!!  I also took some pictures of the moon in the sky as it was still up.

Anyway, without further ado, here is my layout:

I did some masking, used some paint and cardboard, and machine stitched the circles.  And the best part is that my friend Vickie aka "Happy Go Lucky," from sent me the felt snowflakes which go perfectly here!!!!  Thanks so much, Vickie!   . . . and Karolina for the wonderful sketch.

Well friends, it is almost the end of another year.  Can you believe that New Year's Eve is tomorrow?  We will be arriving in 2013 pretty soon.  Unbelievable how fast time flies!

Happy New Year to you all!  I wish you many blessing in 2013.  Thank you all so much for supporting my blog this past year.
