2012 - First Layouts of the Year


How has everyone's weekend been? Mine has been extremely quiet at home since my husband is still no better after 5 weeks of suffering horrible pain from a bulging disc in his back. Hopefully he recovers soon. So with a quiet weekend at home, it has been a great chance to get some scrapping done. I have done 2 layouts already today.

This first one is something I wanted to create since the start of the new year so I was pretty happy to see the new Get Picky challenge suited my idea. It is a layout reflecting on my goals and resolutions for 2012. I have included some hidden journalling on kraft journal cards that slide out from behind the photo and paper. One lists my resolutions, to declutter, get organised, get on top of finances and remain healthy. The other has my goals... and yes, one of those is to get pregnant lol And hopes of trying to squeeze in at least a mini overseas trip somewhere.

 Materials include: Papers & ribbons - Basic Grey Picadilly range; Prima flowers, AC Thickers; Green tara spray; D-lish scraps journalling cards.

This next layout was a general one with no sketch or challenge in mind. It features a photo of our new kitten with his brother Yoda. For the first few days, we had both Dexter and Yoda at our place as my sister adopted Yoda. Its a very cool picture!
 Materials: Paper, lace & alphas - Basic Grey Picadilly; prima flowers; Jillibean soup kraft alphas.

These two layouts were created using my DT kit from Scrapbooking Haven. Normally such bright colours would scare me but I am happy with how they turned out. There is another I have done with the kit already, but it will not be revealed until 1 February unfortunately. But here is a sneak:
Check out the Scrapbooking Haven February sketch challenge reveal to see the rest.

Have a great day :)
