Happy New Year

Happy New Year! I hope that this year is filled with all good things for you and your family. As I look back on 2008, I think of a year that was filled with both happy memories and rough challenges for my family. But, the hard times definitely taught us to live each day to the fullest. We are much closer because of them.

I'm starting off the New Year with a challenge over at Inspire Me. Scrap your resolution and you could win a line of Webster's Pages papers. All of the information can be found here

Here is my page:






I used Webster's papers, along with some Pink Paislee. The cut outs are from WP, as is the trim. I added a couple of Crate Die cuts, K and CO. beaded flowers and Hambly rubons. I used a photo of my favorite flower - the white tulip- because to me it embodies simplicity.

I don't have much else to share because my scraproom is in shambles. My stuff is shoved together in the center of the room and also out in the hallway. The transformation has begun. We painted it this week. I have some grand plans for it, but it will be a while before it's done and I can post pics. Wish me luck.

Have a Happy New Year! Thanks so much for stopping by.

that's funny Anabelle-as I was spending sometime last night reflecting on 2008, I decided my word of 2009 would be simplify-I am learning that there is so much beauty in simplicity:)
Happy New Year to you!!!
