Here is my layout for "Ringing in the New Year for 2012"...
We spent another New Year's Eve at home... with dinner, a movie, games, fireworks and a slumber party!! And we can't forget the all important PARTY FAVOR NOISE MAKER!! Oh my gosh... my Husband and I had to finally throw those things away.. because the kids would not stop blowing them. Talk about a headache!!! So I had to highlight the infamous noisemaker on my layout!! I am proud for what I came up with. The base is a Cricut Cut from "Sweet Treats"... and then I added curling ribbon for the frilly ends! I was proud of myself for thinking that one up!! :-)
And then topped it off with a Clock/Hat embellie from the "Celebrate with flourish" cartridge... and just simply a close-up of the journaling.
Hope you come play with us at this week!! Lots of new changes over at Lasting Memories with something for you to see every day!! Featured Layouts, Tips and Tutorials, Featured Artists.... and now even an Inspirational sketch to get your MOJO flowing. Come See!!
I am also entering my layout at the newest Getting Scrappy Challenge - "Anything Goes." Amanda and her NEW DT provide 2 challenges per month.. .and I think I have attempted to play with them at least once per month. Always love their challenges.
And then I found a new sketch blog (Well new to me) called Twisted Sketches 134 where I used the below sketch and incorporated the twist of "NEW" on my layout. Wish me luck... this challenge runs all month.
And finally...Paper Cutz Ch. # 120 is having a challenge that has to do with anything for the New Year. Well I would say... my layout shows exactly that. :-) You have until January 20th for this one.
Okay my friends... that's all I have for you. So glad you stopped by to check out my creation!
