This is my cover page layout for my Project 2013 Album. It's a January 1 photo, taken in the morning, and these three are waiting on me to feed them. That's the story of my life - somebody's always wanting something. LOL
For the past four years, I've taken my January 1 photograph of the morning sunrise, but this year, the skies were overcast and there was only a gradual lightening of the grey gloom. I hope that doesn't say anything about the upcoming year, but I think I'll choose to focus my thoughts on the look of hope and expectancy on the faces of my three equine companions. Maybe they know something I don't.

Technique and Supplies :
I grabbed the journal card image from the internet, then printed it over a picture of a January 1 Vintage Postcard image, also from the internet.
The large flowers are some old Prima stash that I picked up on Peachy Cheap, way back when I first started scrapping. The blue flowers are Paper Blooms from Kaisercraft. The wood clock is the last of a Prima package.
The ric-rac strip is a die cut from Sizzix - I was so excited when I found it on sale!
Michaels After Christmas Sale Aisle : The big wood snowflake had a broken arm and I picked it up for a quarter. The bling strips came off a floral spray, and the snowflake sticker strip was 80% off the package. The little white roses came out of the $1 bin - I can't make them for that!
The title letters are another Peachy Cheap deal - but I altered them with some Stampendous Aged Aqua Embossing powder.
The papers are old stash from a few years back - I think they're maybe My Mind's Eye, but I forget that kind of thing as soon as I cut the title strip off.
Martha Stewart's snowflake punch created the little snowflakes, and the stick pin is a Pat Original creation.
Thanks for taking a peek. I'm really happy with how this one turned out!
