Hello lovelies, and a very Happy New Year to you all!
I hope that you have all had a lovely time over Christmas and the New Year.
It's been a lovely time for me as I've had a couple of weeks off work and spent some quality time off with my lovely husband and my gorgeous girl Peggy...our golden Labrador.
So, now we are in the New Year, it is time for the first challenge of 2016 over at
The theme is 'Anything Goes'.
I love this theme as it really gives you such a wide choice of what project's you can make, wether it be a card, a mixed media project or a journal page. The idea's are endless.
My project I have used two mdf frames and mdf word keys from
I don't make New Year's Resolution's, instead I like to choose 'Key' words for the year. My words for this year are
'LOVE' - which means for me to give love and be loved.... I also added this vintage butterfly brooch, as butterflies have a very special meaning for me. It is very appropriate to put Love and Butterflies together.
'HOPE' - meaning I will always see Hope in times of sadness and gladness.
'LOVE' & 'HOPE'
I have also decorated the frames using Craft Consortium Decoupage papers in English Rose and Textured Wood.
The keys I have covered with Creative Expressions Vintage Holly Gilding Wax.
I've added Petal Lu flowers, pearls and vintage brooches for embellishments.
Don't forget we also have a group on Facebook called
