New Year and New "Things"

Happy New Year Everyone! Been a busy little bee these past few days, so I figured I'd better get that New Year salutation out there before it's Valentine's Day! LOL Did everyone see in the New Year in style? At a party? Maybe just sitting on the couch in jammies? We were in San Antonio for the Alamo Bowl ... and had a great couple of days. More on that later ...

To start of the New Year, how about a little incentive for some digi shopping? Check out that banner to the left - yes, you read it correctly ... 30% of new kits TODAY ONLY - and this isn't just one or two kits ... I believe 70 were released today! YES, 70! Personally, I've picked up some great kits for a 365 project. Are YOU doing "365" or a version of it? I've decided on weekly layouts, but just hitting the highlights - not necessarily a photo a day. Hopefully I'll have my first page completed in the next day or two for Week 1 of 52 - figured I'd include January 1 and 2 in Week 1. But I digress ... check out the releases for today - and see what ELSE the banner says ... 30% off EVERY Thursday on new releases! That's definitely something to mark in your calendar, for sure - I know I will!

Want to see what I've created with things from Design House Digital (DHD)? Well, even if you say no, too bad ... LOL! Here's a page I created using Carina Gardner's Sugar and Spice kit, along with her Essentials Mask #3. By the way, if you're just starting out with digital scrapbooking, then take a look at Carina's whole "Essentials" line - basic papers, masks, stitching ... great things to add to your basics, just like the basic suit, little black dress, etc. The little bird is from Jen Allyson's Design 365 January kit (which has coordinating stamps and stickers released today - hint hint!).

... and to round out today's post, here's a sneak peak at one of the photos from San Antonio - we named this guy Gus. We found Gus at an African Safari drive-through wildlife park near New Braunfels, about 30 minutes from San Antonio. Isn't he cute?
