My 2013 Favourite Creations - Happy New Year

Hello Everyone -
Happy New Year - Wishing you all Health and Happiness for 2014.

It was a very quiet New Year this year apart from the delight and joy of my 2 yr old DGS who is having a holiday at Granny's at the moment.   Today I am playing along with 'A Scrapjourney's' 'Five Favourite Creations of 2013" challenge.  ... and what a hard one it is too - just to pick five so here we go..... and there could be a few more.

The first one - a Heritage layout - I love creating with old photos and this  one just went together so well and I still love it.
Birds on a Branch and True Romance

Next up - the Scrapbooking highlight of the year was attending Finnibair's class at Rolleston in March.  Attending Finnibair's class ticked off one of my 2013 goals - to learn more about and gain confidence in mixed media scrapbooking.  I was on a buzz for weeks after this class.  This next layout was inspired by what I learned there but with my twist.

Next up - a layout from a sketch at Scrapfriends where this was slightly away from my 'normal' style adding a few textures etc.


1st Snow Day

October 12 saw the early arrival of my DGS Jake and I loved creating with the Prima Delight collection.  Also this layout is a rare case of me scrapping myself.

and No 5 - it is getting harder but I am going to include another in the Prima Delight Collection of my parents meeting Jake.

Well that is five but Debby said a few more could be slipped in so here is my one and only Christmas project and a couple of special cards made throughout the year. - my Dad has  been making some shadow box frames for the dimensional projects so this now has one of his frames around it.

Thank you Debby from "A Scrapjourney" for the challenge.

Thanks so much for visiting today.  Most of my creations are also on my Scrapbook.Com Gallery if you wish to peruse any more. 

Over the past 18 months I have designed for 'Embellish It' but have given that away in order to complete some personal projects that have been in the pipeline for some time. 

Well that is all for today as I need to get organised for more visitors arriving including my DGS Jake.
