Welcome to the first challenge of the year with 


With a new year here at last it seems only fitting to have the challenge be "New Beginnings".  Most people make resolutions to start something new...I know I have.  No matter what you have decided to start anew (new year, new baby, new home) you can create something to remind you.  I have resolved to have a happy year and so I decided that my mystic should give me that as my future.  That's why I chose to get "Mystic Mabel" as my image for this challenge.  I think she fits it so well.

Here are the wonderful sponsors we have for this challenge

Julia Spiri Digital Stamps
Prize: 2 images of choice

Bugaboo Digi Stamps
Prize: 7 images of choice
