Our Wonderful Life

Hi there and Happy New Year!  I hope you had a wonderful festive season and are looking forward to the year ahead.

I'm dropping in quickly today to share a just for fun layout using the gorgeous Teresa Collins Nine & Co collection.  I'm not normally a fan of orange but I just love this collection!

This is my favourite photo from Christmas Day, of Kayci on the beach in the late afternoon.  I just went with a really simple design and added some layers and ephemera pieces as I went.  

I trimmed the 'Our Life' ephemera piece in two so that I could slip in an extra word into my title.  The  sweet bicycle flair button is from My Minds Eye, Jubilee collection.  I fussy cut some leaves from one of the patterned papers and stitched them right on the page.

I still struggle with my handwritten journalling but it's something I want to do more of in 2015.  Does anyone else feel like that?  I'm thinking I'll look up some tutorials on how to make my writing neater, if you know of any good ones I'd love to hear what they are.

How sweet is the heart lace!? 

It feels great to be creating again after a few weeks break over Christmas and holidays with my hubby and our family.    I'm so looking forward to what this year will bring both in the scrappy world and for our family.

Thanks for dropping in!
