Live Simply, Laugh Lots...

Happy New Year!  I hope you had a very Merry Christmas and a safe New Year!  May 2016 be full of love, good health and all things happy! :)

With the holidays behind us and the kids back in school why not take some time out for you and join in with us at Challenge YOUrself.  This month we're easing you into the new year with an "Anything Goes" challenge!  That's right, you can create anything you'd like but it must include YOU in the photo.  

Here is mine to share.

This selfie of my love and I was taken at the Lake of the Clouds in U.P. Michigan.  It is such a beautiful place.

I created this layout with my October 2014 Gossamer Blue scrapbook kit.  I used a mixture of paper and product by Simple Stories and My Minds Eye.  For the hanging pendents I used the My Story chipboard buttons by MME.  To create the look just feed twine through the button holes and glue down the hanging trail, folding over the top and then tape down the tails on backside.  Topping it off with a matching bow.

Be sure to visit Challenge YOUrself for more inspiring layouts from this months challenge and I hope that you join in us!  I'm so excited to see what you come up with.  You have until February 4 to link up!

I am also sharing my layout with Rochelle Spears January This Or That challenge.  I'm using twine.

That's it for today.  Thanks so much for stopping by and happy scrapping to you!
