Happy New Year Everyone!

I hope everyone had a safe and happy New Year. We went to a couple of house parties and even managed to make it past midnight, lol. It's always great to ring in the New Year with good friends!

So I even  managed to get one of the Christmas photo's scrapped today. This is s photo of my grandchildren looking very serious for some reason. lol. I used a mix of Bo Bunny's "A gift of love" papers and Websters papers on this layout. I finally got smart after listening to other scrappers on how they save some of their papers when layering and only cut the holly paper so it fit around the paper in front instead of having all this wasted paper behind the other paper. It takes me awhile but eventually I catch on, lol.

For my poinsettia I took some of my white flowers and dyed them with some Rangers ink, in cranberry, and them layered them, used a white brad for the center and outlined the petals with stickles glitter. I also used some red stickles for the holly on the right corner of the photo. I cut out the Santa in the air balloon from the Websters papers and then popped it up with foam for the 3D look. I think it turned out not to badly, I just wish the photo was a bit better quality. Well thanks for stopping by and I hope everyone is enjoying the first few days of 2012!
