A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL!

HI EVERYONE
I hope you all had a great Christmas and a very happy New Year.....as you can see I've changed my blog  for 2011 and  used a variety of stamped and digital images(the girls are from Bizzy Becs - Blue Butterfly collection)  that I copiced up.
Now, getting onto something totally different, I've started making my first  mini album and I can't believe how much fun it is! And because it's the start of a brand new year I based it on the sentiment: IMAGINE LIFE...I have made a few pages to go with the book but for now I just wanted to show the front cover...
I have used a variety of new and used embellishments, and a new technique on patterned paper, which looks and feels like leather, just by using distress inks, copper embossing powder, swirl stamps and finishing it off with thick embossing enamel..
And because I haven't done a challenge for a while I thought I might just pop it into some of my favourite sites :
INCY WINCY - distressing
MY TIME TO CRAFT - new technique
PAPER TAKE WEEKLY - be thankful (for life)
TUESDAY TAGGERS - old father time (old fashioned clock)
FOR FUN CHALLENGES - new year (time)
LITTLE RED WAGON - leftovers
LILY OF THE VALLEY - new beginnings (new technique & craft stash & mini book)
STAMP INSANITY - sparkle
SOUTHERN GIRLS CHALLENGE - anything goes
SCRAPCREATIONS - dt call
Well that's it for now...hope to see you all soon!
