Happy New Year LO

A very happy Monday to you all on this very wet and windy day (again!) 

This weekend I had the good fortune to be able to craft with a friend at her apartment in Maidstone, Kent. Normally on the first Saturday in the month we both go to the same crop, but this month it was cancelled so I was very lucky to be invited to craft with her. She (Jo) put some finishing touches to a LO she was creating and has also resolved to finish off some of her unfinished LO's from 2013.

As for me, well I decided to have a go at the Scrapology January Challenge which challenged me to use a sketch they had provided and to use some buttons/ badges.

I loved the sketch and wanted to use some photos I had taken with my iPad (off the TV) of the fireworks in London on New Years eve. I think they came out rather well cosidering. The journalling says 'Welcoming in the New Year by the fireside' as I was safely ensconced in front of my woodburning stove, not standing freezing in London in the wind and rain. Lol

Anyway, as it happened I chose to only use on Flair badge.. which was daft as I am sure I could have found room for more. I was using my Counterfiet Kit for January from the CKCB too, so fortunately this has badges in it too. 


The papers are a randomly selected arrangement of PPs and the CS is more deep aqua than the blue/green that it looks like here..but here goes anyway.

Thanks for looking.
