Hello there 2016...

After giving a lot of thought as to how I would tackle PL for this year (see previous post) one of the things I wanted to do was a 12x12 cover page instead of the usual pocket style. One of the reasons I chose to do this is because I wanted my first page in  my album to be a 12x12 layout of our first few minutes of 2016.  I specifically ordered these mini flair buttons from Feed Your Craft just for this project and they have been sitting on my desk waiting to be used.

I always take a group shop after we have counted in the new year, popped poppers, wished everyone a Happy New Year and sent kisses all round.  This year our NYE was going to be a quiet one with just four us.  But during the course of the day it grew to 14.  I took this selfie and so glad I did. The photo is grainy and blurry but  it really reflects the mood and the high spirits that everyone was in.  I was going to add to much more to this layout but the photo and just a few embellishments was all that was needed.

How did you NYE celebrations go, truly wonderful I hope.
Love me :-)


  1. Love the layout! Classy and I really like the products you used. Fun picture! Thanks for sharing.

  2. I really like that we can use photos that aren't perfect for our storytelling and scrapbooking. Sometimes you only see the "perfect" photos. Your layout is simple and very meaningful which is what I strive for.

  3. Fabulous layout, Tracey, the design and colors the perfect complement for your joy-filled photo!
