My goodness, the new year has arrived.. Happy New Year to you all! Did you see the old year out and the new year in?? I did, just by watching tv and being on the ipad and then we watched the fire works from Sydney, and it was time to go to bed...  and just like that....

And so with a new month the Scrapbooking challenges are being revealed..

The challenge for ARCHISCRAPS January is a easy and pretty one,

   and it is to use lace on your creation.. The sponsor this month is

And I created a card using lace, a lace flower and bow...

The chipboard I have used is SCRAPMATTS!

And...  the new challenge for KRAFT+ is a fabulous one and it is..
"On your bike" !  You must use Kraft and have a bike on your creation somewhere.. and just for a refresher of the rules please CLICK HERE!!!  

And my first layout as a Design Team member...

some closer views.

I have gone a little bit vintage!!
I love this vintage chipboard penny farthing...

A step back in time..
The photo is of my Husband and I taken when we dressed for the occasion of our (then) church's anniversary, several of the congregation wore old style clothing.. I must say I am glad to be living in today's world, that long skirt and top sure was hot!!

Well here we are in 2017! I hope this year is a good year for us all.. thanks so much for taking the time to come by and thank you too for the lovely comments you leave me too..
