New Year's {layout}


Hello and happy Monday. Here's a quick little page I whipped up this weekend. I sat down with my bag of scraps that has just the smaller, narrow pieces in it and made this page using only those papers.

When I cleaned my supplies up a few weeks ago, when I switched craft rooms, I promised myself I would start more pages with my scraps instead of whole papers. I think in this case, that theory worked out really well. I love the finished look of this.


This picture is from New Year's Eve. Hubs and I were supposed to go out to a party. He didn't feel well, and after calling his parents (our sitters for the night) and realizing that Brad's dad didn't feel well either, we ended up everyone just staying put right where they were and having a New Year's at home.

Once I realized we were in for the night, I had to make Nate an impromptu party hat. It isn't New Year's without a crazy party hat! He was nice enough to pose for a picture for me, even though he thought his hat was silly. I love this picture—especially since I know he was being overly cheesy for the sake of the hat.

Thanks for stopping by to see my page today. Hope your week is starting off well.
