Happy New Year

Apologies for the lack of posts, this was due to the busy time of year and blogging seemed to be way down my list.  I finally managed to get everything done for the festive holiday which we spent in a beautiful barn conversion in the peak district at Monyash nr Bakewell. It was the first time we've been away for Christmas and it was a lovely family time and certainly something we will be doing again.
New year ahead and hopefully lots of time for crafting, my new years resolution is to make at least one christmas card every week so that its not a mad rush come November, how long I will keep to it is anyones guess but I'm going to try, I also aim to try and finish all the patchwork projects started in the last 18 months.

Yesterday it was our monthly Scrapaholix crop, however due to problems with the kits arriving on time we have decided to work a month behind so we did not have a new kit for this month.  I decided to use up the Christmas kit from last month before starting on anything else and depspite a lot of chatting and catching up I managed to get 2 layouts done.

Papers from My Minds Eye "Lost and Found" collection

The first layout is based on the sketch from The Scraproom Blog
The 2nd layout I did is based on this weeks sketch from Sketches In Thyme

In both layouts the photographs were taken at Christmas 2010

I look forward to reading your comments.
