HAPPY NEW YEAR

Hello Everyone!

Happy New Year, I hope that 2019 brings you all you wish for and more.

This year I am going to try and do some challenges and I have started the year of by joining in the with the Counterfeit Kit Challenge which shows you a kit they have put together and using that you pull your own kit from your stash. I have to say I had such fun with this one.

Here is their kit.


And here is the kit I pulled.


I didn't add embellishments like enamel dots and stuff as I wasn't sure what photos I was going to use. I have to say here I learned a lot from this exercise and I think next month when I pull my kit I will also choose what photos I want to scrap and I think that will help immensely. Having said that I have created a layout using my kit and I am well chuffed with it.

I chose to combine this with the ChallengeYourself blog which is ...


Here is the layout I created for this challenge using my CKC kit.


My one little word for this year is HAPPY. I need to find my happy again. 

I used some Tsukineko  ink on the background to create a watercolour effect and created my layout. Clean and Simple which is my style.

Thanks for stopping by to take a look and for taking the time to leave me a comment. I really appreciate it. 

Till next time - Happy Scrapping!


Hugs

    1. Thank you D... I can't believe we are now already near the end of Feb and people are posting how many weeks to Christmas. Freaks me out. Connected is a bril word too although at the moment I am trying to avoid people. :/ is that awful.
