Challenge #47 - Wishful Thinking a start for 2014

Challenge #47 - Wishful Thinking (a start for 2014)

Happy New Year!!!  
Hi Everyone - Deborah here for PGCB in our first challenge of 2014.  I gotta tell you that the Paper Girls are back at it!  They are busy creating amazing artwork while working on a theme.  This challenge is asking you to think about "Wishful Thinking".  That's it!  Your challenge is to interpret our theme of "Wishful Thinking".  Is it a resolution?  Is it a goal you have for the next month or so?  Is it just a bit of daydreaming for you?  Check out what our designers have been wishfully thinking about as we start this new year:

Deborah is wishfully thinking of her family.  Looks like her kids are wishing on the first evening star!

Charity combined a note from her son with photos to illustrate her goal of remembering to celebrate the ways her children are "growing up."

Michele found a sentiment in her stamp stash that expresses some wishful thinking.

Jessica was inspired by her wish to use up some of her scraps and made this card with a wistful sentiment.

Becci created this piece of home decor using her word(s) for the year.

Kristy sends New Year's wishes to you and your family, sharing her New Year's Day traditions on this layout.  She also wishes her mom could be with her family next year, instead of on Skype.

This challenge's winner will receive:

The winner for 

Challenge #46 - Using Holiday Products on Non-Holiday Projects 

is Sherri P.

 Congratulations Sherri!
