Getting Ready for the New Year

2012 is almost here; are you ready? For my post today for Glitz Design, I decided to pull out some photos from our last New Year's Eve. I used a mix of from the three latest collections to create this fun page.


These photos crack me up, Emily thought she had to blow till her cheeks hurt for it to be loud enough, LOL! Here's a couple of close-ups,






Next, I created a journal as a very special gift for a friend who likes all things shabby and girlie. To create my journal, I cut two pieces of chipboard, regular copy paper and a few sheets of pattern paper to 8.25"x5.25" and bound everything together with my Cinch.


I used the Beautiful Dreamer collection and added a Tim Holtz book plate and rosette trim with lots of images cut out of the paper collection.



I kept the inside very simple as I want the recipient to be able to journal and maybe adhere ephemera or photos throughout the book.




Thanks so much for stopping by today. I wish you all a happy and healthy new year filled with many blessings for you and your family.

Hugs,
Jolaine
