Happy New Year

Well, here I am - another post already! Just realized that I forgot to take a picture today. My son has a friend over and they are watching a movie. I could go snap one...OK, got a couple. If they don't turn out to be what I want, I had considered using a snippet of the sheet music from the song I did at church today. We'll see. So, best friend used to say that all the time. It was her seque to anything. The right way to do it is to have an upwards inflection on the "a" and kind of stress that part of the word. So, anyway - this little countdown calendar was purchased from Stampin' Up. I believe I might have gotten it for Christmas or my birthday last year and I'm just now getting around to using it. Very simple. I just cut the pieces from the Celebate with Flourish for the new year's clock and hat (no such fanciness for me last night, I stayed home and when Midnight came, I whispered "happy new year" to Gage). I mounted the die cut on Basic Grey Cupcake layered with real red and black. Since the New Year is here, I will need to make a birthday something since Kai and I both have birthdays this month.

I bought this planner for $1 at a local $1 store. The planner I was using was 8 1/2 x 11 and was a little big for my purse. It fit in there, but the top stuck out and made it hard to carry my purse. This is about 7 x 9 1/2 and will fit much more nicely. I used the Elements paper from CTMH along with the Love Life Stamps. I CASED the idea from the CTMH idea book. It was a layout and I changed it up, but the border and the tag are the same.

Well - I hope you all had a safe and happy new year. I had a nice relaxing evening and I'm looking forward to my last day off before returning to work tomorrow. It's been a very productive week for me...wish I had more time to devote to crafts and yes, even to cleaning. See you soon!
