Times Square Ball Drop layout by Kirsty Vittetoe

The name for Pixie Dust Paperie December Kit is
Times Square Twenty 11
There are more than one reason I named the kit that

One is, the kit has a lot of fabulous products in time for your NEW YEAR'S projects
I am not sure about you, but every year, I would send handmade cards or mini album to families back home (Singapore), and most of the projects consist of photos and events happened in the past year, just a way to keep my family updated.

Reason # 2 is, I was blessed with the opportunity to witnessed the New Year's Ball Drop at Times Square, NYC during my 7 and a half years stay in Manhattan.
Not just once, but twice, we were invited to the 39th floor of The Reuters Building at 42nd street, NYC. Witnessed the world's famous New Year count down party at Times Square, and watched that Crystal Ball dropped right in front of our eyes in close distance. Thanks to my dear friend, Susan and Kon for inviting us.

Here' s a layout using the photo from the New Year's Ball drop party at Times Square, December 31, 2007
with all the lovely papers and embellishment from Pixie December kit

Perhaps the most famous New Year's Eve celebration in the world, attending the New Year's Eve Ball Drop in Times Square is a memorable way to spend new year's eve in New York City

These little cute glittered alphabet stickers make the best banner of all time

People have been celebrating New Year's Eve in Times Square since 1904, but the first Ball Drop didn't happen until 1907. Since 1907, the ball has been dropped from One Times Square every year, except in 1942 and 1943 due to wartime restrictions on lighting in New York City

Good thing about using a kit to create a page is that, the coordination and matching part is already done for you, all you need is to cut, and then move them around to the places you would love them to be, and glue.... easy huh?

Here's the arrow pointing the sparkling Waterford Crystal Times Square New Year's Eve Ball. At 11.59PM, the Ball begins its descent as millions of voices unite to count down the final seconds of the year, and celebrate the beginning of a new year full of hopes, challenges, changes and dreams.

New Year's Eve at Times Square Ball Drop with your love one

What a way to celebrate a NEW BEGINNING!
