Hello 2016!

I've missed you all over the festive period! 
As I craft in my dining area my stash had to be put away to make room for the Christmas tree and so in order to do any scrapbooking I  would have to rummage around upstairs to find what I needed from my hastily rehoused boxes!
Luckily for me I had my new kit from Like Forever kit club still in it's box and easily accessible so I was able to grab it and create a page for The Studio Challenges first reveal of 2016!

Hope and Dreams for 2016 is the theme this time!

The last couple of month's of 2015 were very stressful for me and lots of things were happening that are also affecting the New Year. So for my layout I chose to scrap a photo of our new calendar to denote the coming year and hidden behind the photo is my journaling about what I hope the new year will bring.

I put this 'Just Believe' among the cluster in the bottom corner to add a positive note the theme!

These alterable thickers were coloured with Heidi Swapp Colour Shine mist in Navy and added to a PL card that already had 'Hello' on it.

I had a ViewMaster reel already cut out and backed it with the tissue paper that came with this kit. 
I only added a couple of items from the ephemera pack as I am trying not to overload my layout in the way I normally do!

I really hope you can join in with us at The Studio Challenges and for more inspiration why not pop over to the blog to see the DT's and our guest designers beautiful takes on their Hopes and Dreams for 2016.

Thanks for stopping by today.

  1. I've missed your pages Kerry. This one is beautiful and I do hope that 2016 is kind to you.

  2. I have missed your beautiful creations, too! This page is gorgeous and genius idea to put tissue paper behind the view master reel! I hope that 2016 turns out to be a fantastic year for you.

  3. Lovely page, and with a chosen theme like that 2016 is sure to be special. Happy New Year!

  4. OH Good - I wasn't the only one that was a bit busy over the holidays! :-) I hope that you had the opportunity to celebrate with joy with family and friends. We had a fabulous holiday despite a toilet that broke and flooded our home a little while we were out for the day! Yikes!

    Your work continues to inspire me! I simply love your style. Honestly! This page is no exception! Purely stunning! I wish that all your 2016 dreams come true!

    I hope that you do join us at Lasting Memories! I would love to see Sammy's beautiful face with her new driver's license.

    I'm going to have to check out your kits. They look fabulous!

    Great to be in touch again! Here is to 2016!
