Ready for a New Year and a New Challenge #54?

We are!

Challenge #54, 2016

Looking forward, Looking back - TWIST a window or mirror

This month we are challenging you to take a look towards or into the future, and at the same time, reference looking back to the past. There is an Australian song by past iconic songster Slim Dusty (Country and Western) and as soon as I thought of this challenge, that song popped into my mind.

These are the first two verses:

Looking forward, looking back
I’ve come a long way down the track
Got a long way left to go
Making songs, from what I know

Making sense of what I’ve seen
All the love we’ve had between
You and I, along the track
Looking forward, looking back

Now, there are many way you can go with this challenge and the TWIST of the window or mirror:

Birthdays, Valentines, Anniversaries, Births, Weddings and all that comes in between!

To inspire you a little more there is a prize - chosen by random number - and there is also a chance of being selected as the DT Favourite(s) - an honor that does not garner any material wealth but does allow you to boast a lot on your blog!

The Prize
There are two Couture Creation Dies - small - up for grabs this month

You will have until the 26th February to enter this challenge, and your entry can be anything involving paper craft EXCEPT stamping or using a digi stamp  - and to inspire you even further here are some pieces made by some of the Design Team - please go and leave a lovely comment on their blog to let them know how much their work is appreciated!

A Wedding is a new beginning of a life together with your partner.
