Something Old, Something New....

Hello Happy New Year!!! I have not posted in so long. I spent the last of last year sick with a really bad case of bronchitis infection that I could not get to clear up and caused some major breathing problems. The doctors are great but can't quite put their finger on what is causing it and I am still going for some tests. I am on enough meds to take down a bull elephant which helps but has me in a fog and makes me exhausted. I am finally off the cough with codine so I can function now. I couldn't wait to be able to create again.

Today is the first challenge for the new year at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations. The theme of the challenge is Something Old, Something New! We would like you to use something that  is old but still loved and something new that you just got and can't wait to play with. My old is this snowman digi from Sassy Cheryl, I bought it last year and just now am using it again. This time I colored him multiple times and then layered and popped him up in different areas. My new are these snowflake dies from Memory Box. I bought the border and the corner dies. I think they look so delicate and whimsical and they are perfect for adding glitter to for sparkle!

Be sure to check out all the other wonderful creations the ladies have to inspire you to play this week! Can't wait to see your "Old and New"!
Two of our wonderful ladies are stepping down so there will be a DT Call starting tomorrow over at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations. We would love to have you come play with us each week, so drop Kristen a line tomorrow and she'll get you all the details!
