Happy New Year!!!!!

I hope 2009 is a wonderful year for everyone, filled with much happiness.
I've started the year off by asking my dear hubby to tear my kitchen apart & move some cupboards around. He's such a love & happily agreed to my strange request. It's not finished yet but it's looking good.
Yesterday was my last day on the Scrap Pile design team. A lovely lady, called Linda, is the new card DT & her work is gorgeous.
I can't believe it's taken me this long to post the cards I made from my last DT kit.
Here they are.

This first one uses the gorgeous new paper from We Are Memory Keepers & some matching flocked lace. I love the hot pink colour.

On this one I've used one of the new ranges from Crate Paper called "Prudence", the papers & matching diecuts all coordinate beautifully.

I loved this fun paper as soon as I saw it. It's by WRMK also.

Lastly is this card from another range by Crate Paper called "Lemongrass".

This is a little project that I made just for me.
It's my new fridge calendar for the year. Every year I buy one of these cheap whiteboard calendars & jazz it up to my liking. I add a large piece of adhesive magnet to the back & pop it onto the fridge.
I've also added a punched flower to the days that are important, like birthdays etc, & wrote the persons name on them.

Well that's about it for me.
I may not get too many projects done during the holidays as I want to spend as much time as possible with the kids. I hope you all enjoy your Summer holidays too :)

Just love all the new things you have made, and very sad to see you leave SP - was very impressed with all the fridge magnets you made for chrissie presents. Will have to have on look on site for the details - am very slack with the scrapping ATM- but Justine and I scrapped for our calendars yesterday (she finished 3 layouts). Happy New Year for 2009. Hope the kitchen mini reno turns out okay - so great to have a handy husband.
