To receive this award you have to post what you consider your favourite crafting project of 2009 which I found really difficult but as I only started doing digital work this year I decided that it would have to be one of my entries to the Three Muses challenges which have inspired me so many times.
So this is what I chose - the challenge was 'Long Ago and Far Away' and you can see all the credits here http://alis-space.blogspot.com/2009/10/unwelcome-guests.html

For the ACF challenge this week
We were given the gorgeous girl and I thought she looked as if she was remembering something. Was it the Summer or a lost love or someone just far away? Who knows?
Credit to Lorie Davison for her "Before The First Snow" kit for everything apart from the girl.

For the Three Muses and no, it's not whisky or brandy but Santa in a bottle.
Credits to Irene V. Alexeeva for the background and chest of drawers, to Jen Ulasiewicz for the bottle and jars, and to Yanna for all the Christmassy bits and pieces.
Font is 'A Lolita Scorned'.

The Sunday Postcard Art challenge is St. Nicholas
I found three very different images of Saint Nicholas - the original saint, the Dutch version whose name metamorphosed into Santa Claus, and the one we know now as Father Christmas to make three simple Post Cards.

ACF gave us a lovely image of Marilyn Monroe for this week's challenge #52
I was going to put her in a Christmas scene but as I'd just treated myself to a bumper bundle of 'Alice' kits from Irene Alexeeva I decided to use bits of them to create this.
Credit to Irene Alexeeva's 'Weird Wonderland' for everything apart from Marilyn's face.
The font is 'WALTOGRAPH UI'

This week's challenge at Three Muses is 'Fun & Games' and that's exactly what I had!For a start I went completely mad and thought that I had read that the challenge was 'Keyholes' so I made this - a previously unknown Alice book by Lewis Carroll.
Credit to nicolefrancine on Flickr for the book cover and Google for 'Arthur Rackham's Alice' and the keyhole.
Font is 'Yesternight'.
Then when I went to post it on Wednesday I realised my mistake so made this in a bit of a hurry
I found this lovely image by Norman Rockwell on the internet; I thought it was just perfect for the challenge and only needed a frame made for it which is what I did. That'll teach me to look before I leap!

For Crafty Ann's Challenge which is 'Black & White +1'
The card is actually white but the lighting has made it look yellowish. The base card is matt white and the decoupage layers were printed on satin paper and some red glitter added round the frame.The trees were actually designed by me and the colouring in was done digitally. The final touches are three gems on the tree stars and a tiny silver tree charm coloured a little with a Sakura metallic pen. The font is 'Fontdinerdotcom Sparkly'.

For the Three Muses Challenge this week
When I saw the challenge was 'Time' I almost immediately thought of Albert Einstein and his Theory of Relativity; not that I understand it at all!
Done in PSP with all images courtesy of Google.
Font is 'Caslon Antique'

For this week's Art Creations Friday challenge
ACF gave us the image of this beautiful girl. I thought she looked as if she was thinking of something sad so I gave her a fiancé fighting in the First World War to be thinking of and worrying about. And, of course, he will be thinking of her too.
Credits to Laurie Bavin & Kim Liddiard from www.digitalscrapbookplace.com for their Keys to the Past Page Kit for various elements and background and to Google for the soldier.

For today's Mixed Media Monday challenge.
As soon as I saw this picture from The Sum of All Crafts .....
...... I knew that she was a perfect image to represent 'I Am Woman'.
So I enhanced the colours a little
And then I framed her
And I think she speaks for herself so I didn't add anything else!
