Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and got to spend some special time with their family. I had a great day visiting family and just relaxing and catching up. I received some lovely gifts, one being a signed copy of Tim Holtz's book A Compendium of Curiosities. I love what Tim does and I am looking forward to trying out some of his techniques. I recently made the big decision to resign from my job of 22 years. It was time for me to move on and I am hoping to find an exciting new job in the new year. For the moment I am enjoying spending some lazy days with my children and hope to enjoy more scrapping time. I have just finished a big clean up of my scrap area and found these layouts I completed at the Scrap Boutique retreat in November but had not filed away.
Using Girls Paperie papers, letters and embellishments, Carolees tiny alphas.
