For my posting this week, I decided to continue on with a layout I made last week for the New Year. This layout was blinged out, so this one is a little subtle comparatively. Both layouts are below.

This is the first layout I did to celebrate the New Year.  I completed this Layout using the Happy New Year pattern set.  You can read more about this layout here.


I just love working with Nikki’s patters. There are so many wonderful designs, and so many ways to work with the patterns.

This is my new Layout!

I played off the “Ringing In The New Year” from the blog hop and added it to my layout. I do believe that I needed to make my letters a little larger however to make them easier to read against the musical note paper.

I just love the baby new year bear, and thought he looked adorable sitting atop each of the photos frames.

Make sure you follow each blog and make comments.  Additionally, make sure you meet the requirements to qualify for the Blog Candy offered by Nikki.
