BY THE CUTE AND GIRLY



HAPPY NEW YEAR to all my lovely blogging friends, new and old lol. Hope you all stay HEALTHY, WEALTHY and WISE! Today sees the start of another challenge over at BY THE CUTE AND GIRLY and this month the challenge was chosen by DEBBY and she has decided on NEW. Now this can cover lots of things, new beginnings, new baby, new job, new car, new craft stuff lol. For my take on the challenge I made to items for my son who is started a new venture this year and hopes to become a Driving Instructor.
I made an easel shaped calender for him and put inspirational words on each sheet. The sheets are perforated so he can tear it off each month. The background is from My Craft Studio made a date cd, I scanned in one of those little calendars and then re sized to fit each page and added the quotes. The letters are stick on glitter letters, the stamp used is PSX pixie travel stamps. I used a punch and rivet to attach it all.
My scrap page is a pic of Milo in his new (brand new) Mini car, car paper from stash, grid paper from funky fairies. Text is hand written.
There are lots of brilliant prizes up for grabs this month so be sure to pop over and have a look at the brilliant inspiration from all the DT girls.
I am entering this in to Cards4Men challenge - New beginnings
and Stampavie and More - Happy New Year,
and Crafty Creations - glitter and bling
