Happy New Year

Well Hello everyone... Happy New Year to you all. I have been enjoying a couple of long weekends pottering around the house, doing some spring cleaning, some shopping and some relaxing :) It has been good not to have much travel to do this year and just be at home. I even went 2 days in a row with no make up which is pretty rare for me!!

I have even been taking a break from scrapping. I have all too many scrappy friends over do it and wear themselves out by over committing themselves and turning this wonderful hobby into a huge pressure in their lives. Well, not me :) I have enjoyed the break too but I am ready to scrap again and have a stack of project ideas ready for this new year - not to mention a heap of new photos.

While I'm here, I did want to show you this sweet gift I made for a good friend for Christmas... I had to leave it until now just in case she saw the blog before it arrived!!!

I up-cycled a beautiful gift book from my local newsagent with a Sizzix die cut and some Craft Queen flowers and ribbon. The paper is Glitz design and the mist is Ranger Perfect Pearls and OMG I love this stuff!!! This colour is Sunflower sparkle but it's more gold then yellow...yummo :) and half the price of the Glimmer mist too!

I hope you all had a wonderful New Years and wish you all a fantastic Year filled with wishes come true!

Love Gwen
