Happy New Year! New Goodies and January Blog Train!

I'm going to attempt some P365 again this year. Last year I think I only got like 10 photos in before I just stopped. I think it was the stress of feeling like I needed a photo, to edit the raw photo, and blog about the photo Every Single Day. I'm going to take my pictures and maybe try and blog once a week. Maybe I'll even manage to scrap some of them this year, too. lol.

I've got some new goodies in my shop today that might help, too. I have a wonderfully neutral kit full of beautiful patterns and elements. It's perfect for scrapping your everyday photos!




Here are a few inspiration layouts from CT (and myself)


All new releases are 20% off.!

It's also time to hop on board the January Blog Train from the Blog Train Blog

Your previous stop should have been LaLi Creation's Blog
and the next stop is the Hot Flash Designs Blog There are 100 stops so make sure you start from the beginning and go through the list so you don't miss any goodies!

Here is my part:

I hope y'all have a happy, scrappy New Year!
