Debbie Burns - DT Coordinator
 January's challenge is 'All About Me'.  Marivic is doing the first challenge of the year & here it is in her own words as well as her example, prize & rules to play along.

This challenge is about your new year's resolution, your dreams, your childhood, your best and worst moments, what makes you laugh, cry, mad...what makes you feel beautiful...your best physical feature, what you wish you can change about yourself...your pet peeves, your frustrations, your favorite food, color...maybe a secret? whatever you want to talk about as long as it's all about you.

Since we are talking about you...(the queen!). Here is our January theme that you need to follow.
 The sponsor for the January challenge is 13 Arts
They are sponsoring the winner and the DT this month with this gorgeous paper collection, Frosted Life.
Random Winner will receive a Vintage-style Skeleton Key Collection from 
Here's what Marivic made using Frosted Life Collection
I stenciled the background using crackle paste. I misted it as well. Used glass beads in some portions. Just a random mix of everything.
One of my Tags..Marie Antoinette is part of the theme..
