Hi everybody and welcome back for another Scrapbooking Challenge here at Merly Impressions! We are happy to see you coming back for more inspiration every month and we hope that you will keep making time for us in the new year!
So, 2013 is finally here and I couldn't let another year start without designing a challenge that had some sort of "new year" theme! So there you go, your theme for this month is:
Explanations: I want to see layouts that have 2013 in the title. It can show how you celebrated the arrival of the new year, it can talk about your plans, your hopes or your dreams for the new year or it can simply be a place to list your resolutions for 2013 in order to help you stick to them! It is quite open really, but it has to be in relation with the new year. You can join us here.
Always one to take part, here is my layout for you this month:
The story behind this layout is that in the past year (and a bit more...) I have been trying to get back on top of my health and I have lost 3st (yay me!!!) but I want to keep at it in the new year and keep on top of my new my good habits in order to lose the 2st that I still need to shed. I decided to use the A-mazing new Kaisercraft Doily Template to create my background. I then added details by using the gorgeous rub-ons from the brand new Botanical Odyssey collection to then layer on top some strips from the Paper pad as well as some Collectables from the same collection. I added texture and volume with my beloved paper blooms in Fire Red, Sea Breeze and Fuchsia.
I hope that this theme inspires you to play along with us!
