Happy New Year!

Happy 2012 every body ...

I am hoping 2012 is a better year altogether if I am honest ... 2011 was n't the best for us and it was really hard saying goodbye to John's wonderful Mum just before Christmas...

Onwards and upwards as they say ... I have n't made any resolutions this year ... I always break them by the end of the first week to be honest ... but I do need to reorganise myself ... rather a lot ... so ... here goes to ... lots more crafting ... lots more blogging and lots more ... erm ... writing lists and actually sticking to them!
My first challenge of 2012 is Simon Says Stamp and Show and the theme this week is Simon Says Stamp and Show ... Something Old ... Something New! I took an old projects and revamped it to make it new ... still with me? No ... ahh Well!
I have got a good idea ... why not make it your New Years Resolution to join in with Simon Says Stamp and Show every week for 2012 ... our fabulous site sponsor Simon Says Stamp provide a $50 shopping spree every week for a lucky winner picked at random ... and as they say ... you gotta be in it to win it!
Mmmm ... this was n't actually the easiest project to photograph to be fair ... it's a five piece hangy thing ... so hopefully you will get the general idea ... all stamps used are THE Wendy Vecchi and there is a fair splattering of Lord Tim of Holtz Idea-Ology on it too ... you know Tim ... the man that set up all the New Years Fireworks displays across all the capitals in all the world while putting all the pops in the party poppers with just a smidgeon of Perfect Pearls and a Paper Piercing Tool.
I must away ...
Happy Happy Happy New Year people ... I hope every day of the coming year is good to you and your famillies!
Laters!

Hi Linda. Your "revived" wall piece is absolutely beautiful! I love that it's all done in kraft and black. Your added metal elements really stand out. All of your Wendy flowers and butterflies are so lovely! It's really a beautiful piece. <3 Candy

Your wall hangings are always fabulous Linda, revamped or not. Love all the little pearls you've added to this one.

I hope that 2012 is a much better year for you (I'm hoping for an improvement on 2011 myself). All the best Linda.
