Happy New Year and a Recap

Happy New Year!  Before I get into what the New Year has install for me, I thought I'd share my 13 favourite layouts for 2013.

Me & You - a finalist in Crate Paper's Creative Challenge Weekly, and the first layout I shared on my blog.

Park Fun - My layout for my DT application for Lets Get Sketchy

No School Today - Made for Lets Get Sketchy

 Oh So Lovely - Made for Lets Get Sketchy with yummy American Crafts Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm, my favourite collection of 2013.

Blue Steel & Me - Made for American Crafts DT Submission, and then published in the first Lets Get Sketchy Magazine

#Photo Shoot - as above, and also pinned by Two Peas in a Bucket "The Peas are so Inspiring"

Home - I made this for a sketch challenge at The Paper Bakery

I Believe In Love & Coffee - Made for Use Your Words, using Dear Lizzy 5th & Frolic

Dream Big - Made for Artfull Crafts, experimenting with stamping on wet gesso

Escape to the Lake - A finalist in Crate Papers Creative Challenge Weekly

Hello You - Made with a Paper Bakery Kit for Glitter Girl's Scrapbook Survivor Class at 2Peas

 Hello Blue Eyes - My last layout for Lets Get Sketchy for 2013

Oh Snap - Playing around with monotones and watercolours

In 2013 I achieved some major scrappy goals:

  • Started this blog.
  • Made it onto a Design Team (actually made 4).
  • Made a Design Team for a local shop.
  • Joined a kit club that I love (Paper Bakery).
  • Went to two retreats.
  • Made new scrappy friends, both locally, within the region, and online.
  • Scrapped more than ever before!

Thanks for looking, I'll share more of what's coming for 2014 soon.

Be blessed
