Happy New Year!!!

Hey Happy New Year!  I hope everyone had a great holiday season!!!  We did, but I'm glad it's over.  I basically took December off from blogging but I'm back now and I have a lot to post.  January's challenge over at Scrapbookers Anonymous is to use ink, mist, or paint and mask something.  Well, I use these 3 items all the time and even mask things fairly often but this layout was just not coming together for me.  After tossing 2 failed efforts I kept it simple and came up with this...
I masked a snowflake template by Crafters Workshop with ink, and painted around the pictures.  Go over to Scrapbookers Anonymous to see what the rest of the DT created.

This next layout I made a few weeks back but was just too lazy to take a picture of it and get it posted.
I want to say that the base paper is Sassafrass the, scalloped circle is by Little Yellow Bicycle, the circles and the rocket paper is Bella, alphas are my favorite AC Amy Tangerine Thickers, and I have some blue and yellow duck tape on here as well, oh and I stitched the banner with my new Sew Easy!

Well December 30th was my son's 6th birthday and we had about 12 kids over at the house.  I realized during this party that 3 girls are louder than 9 boys... it's the squealing!  But anyway I knew I wasn't going to do anything really productive after the party so I invited Theresa over to scrapbook.  Well if I was in a rut throughout December I definitely got out of it that evening, as I completed 3 layouts!

I pulled out some Fancy Pants and made this one for the 12.29 challenge at Sketchy Thursdays.  The doilies are Maya and the little card with the numbers by Sassafrass.


This layout is based on sketch #62 at Sketchabilities and I used my December Cocoa Daisy kit.

And lastly I decided to play along with Scrapjacked for the first time.  This layout is based on Bec's layout. I'm too late to post this one over there but you should go check out Scrapjacked, such great DT inspiration.  The paper here is Sassafrass with a little Basic Grey out of print mixed in.  The alphas are a bunch of different black Thickers.

Well that's it... thanks for looking!!!
