Happy New Year 2013

I hope that you are looking forward to 2013 and all it will bring. On New Years I like to start taking down the Christmas decorations so I can begin the year with a clean slate. I’ve been taking down Christmas decorations all day. The last one (hopefully) has been wrapped and packed away for next year. No matter how careful I am I always seem to leave out at least one decoration though. I had hubby go through the house and see if he saw any I might have over looked. Time will tell. There’s got to be a parable in there somewhere. 

I didn’t do much scrapbooking the last month or so, but I did do a couple of pages. The idea popped into my head one day and I couldn’t wait to try it. I like how it turned out. 
This paper came from K&Company's Itsy Bitsy collection.

 I used the same process for both pages but using different papers gave them a different look and feel and they will be going into different albums so it won’t seem redundant.
This paper is from Martha Stewart's  Holidays Pad

I made my title strips Using scraps of left over paper and stickers I had on hand. I used Ranger Stickles to give a little sparkle to the GB's page and I curled their title strips to match the frame.

Using two sided paper, 8 x 8 paper I cut an X where I planned to put the picture. I mounted the picture from behind so when I curled back the triangles left by the X, they created the frame for the photograph.
I entered this on the Little Scrap Pieces Challenge
