Happy New Year!

Dear friends,
Happy 2013, from my cats and me! :). 
I like to share some happy pages from my 'Life Art Journal' today. We're starting 'Life Art Journal' classes this month @ Scrappingville. Sensational!. Check out here for exciting details and class schedule. If you're in town, come join us:). 

So, enjoy; [I must warn you, this post is photo-heavy :)]. 

I felt playful with this page. I made little windows, so we could all 'peek' at my passion, so to speak :). 

Here is the next page. 
I doodled the frames based on my favorite transparent stamps.

I used white gel pen to doodle doilies on kraft paper, then pasted on the pages like so. [The idea came when I was making snowflakes for Newtown school kids :)].

It's almost midnight now. Too late for coffee :). Thanks for staying with me till the last photo, phew. Till next week, LOVE &  HUGS.
