Happy New Year and a Very Belated Post !!!!

Happy New Year to all the lovely people who have continued to check out my little blog despite my unforgivable lack of posts and to any newcomers - Welcome !!!! Christmas has come and gone and I am ashamed to say that I managed to make all of two handmade cards for the OH and my Daughter ( one layer cards - which I rarely do and given without envelopes as I couldn't find any the right size for the rather silly card size I had made !!! LOL !! ) 
Anyway , that is all behind me and I have a mantra for the new year
ACHIEVE !!!!!!                                    
No more excuses of having to cuddle the puppy or any other feeble attempts to not get on with things !!!
The year got off to a good start by attending a day long crop at Funky Farm Scrapbook Barn , Hanley Swan , Worcestershire. Despite the fact that I talk far too much at these events I did actually make a layout and made a start on a mini book too ! 

The theme of the page is my little baby - she is quite tiny here ( six months old now ! ) and I just wanted to do a baby layout all in pinks !!! I used some nice little buff tags, woven ribbon, a heart shaped doily and  mini buttons to accent the photos and a little stamping and of course I can't do a project without using my trusty punches ! 
Here is a closer look ! 

I hope to do more projects involving scrap booking and mini albums as well as cards and do plan to post more regularly too !!!!

Classes will be starting soon so I will post with details and I plan to become  an Independent Stampin' Up demonstrator at the end of January so watch this space !!!!
Happy crafting and thank you so much for visiting !!!
Hugs Jane x
