Hello and welcome to the Ring in the New Year Blog Hop! If you have just stumbled upon my blog you can follow along with our hop by starting at Ribbon's and Glue. If you have been following along you should have come from Missy from Quick Chick Designs.
The theme of this blog hop is to use something "new". I am sure many of you got some new crafty goodies over the holidays? I actually got less than usual this year since I decided I needed to start using up some of my stash (and my space keeps getting smaller and smaller... funny how that happens!) I did however get a few new things- one of which was Carta Bella's new Winter Fun collection. I don't have a TON of winter themed paper, so I decided to add some to my stash (and contribute to my space problem). So, I decided to grab some of that fun new paper and make a layout.
We had a nice snowstorm a few weeks ago so I thought it would be fun to get some shots of my doggie playing in the snow. Well... easier said than done, lol! She was less than cooperative, but I did manage to get one or two useable shots. So I built my page around my favorite photo, and just used the stickers, journaling spots and border strips that came with the collection. I love utilizing these little 'extras' as embellishments on my layouts- it makes the whole process SO much faster and easier and you know everything is going to coordinate just right. Here are a few closeups:
