New Year, New Start

Well, that was the plan, but life got in the way as it often does with young children.

After a break from crafting of any kind for many years, I got back into it through a neighbour Louise, who got me into Scrapbooking after the birth of my daughter.  However I have never found enough time to keep upto date with all the photos I take.  I think the problem a scapper has is that once you start you see a layout in all sorts of places so you take more photos, and the more photos you take the bigger the "to do" pile gets.

Anyway, I'm waffling.  I decided that this year I would try to scrap more as I do love it and think it is a lovely way to keep memories.  I then saw a challenge on SJ Crafts blog, and decided this was the ideal way to get kick started, so here is my take on "Happy"

I know that it is usual to list the products used, but everything here is really just from my scrap box, so I couldn't say.  The challenge was Happy, and my children just love getting together with their little cousins.  We were also asked to use punches.  I don't own many punches myself, but there are a few little butterflys if you can see them, including the negative of a punch that I must have used elsewhere.

Hopefully this will be the first of many that I share.
