Happy New Year for 2017

Morning, and a very Happy New Year to you.  I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and a whizz bang fizz of a time seeing in 2017.  We had a wonderful time here with the family on Christmas Day, one of the best for years, but before the day was out I'd gone down with a killer cold or some sort of lurgy that has totally knocked me for six over the past few days. I think it was an extra little present from Harry who came home from Uni with one mahusive cold...........! I'm just about back on my feet today but have been totally out of action for the last few, I just need it to leave my head and I'll be right as reign again and ready for the new year ahead:-)  
I've just added a new folio album onto the website that I'd hoped to share before Christmas but time just seemed to run away with itself :-).  It's been a while since I made one of these and really enjoyed getting back into the swing of them with this one altered in papers form the Nature Sketchbook collection.  They're designed to be altered in one 8 x 8 paper pad and make a great project if you're new to crafting.  
I added some patterns and solids papers into the mix of beautiful butterflies and botanicals to create extra tags and photo mats and complete the festival of flora and fauna that the collection offers us to craft with........... 
Here's a peek of the inside:

Well my loverlies, enjoy your 1st day of 2017, and getting into the swing of your New Years resolutions if you've made some.  I'll be back with this months Giveaway on 3rd Jan so do call on by then and leave a coment:-) 
Ta ta for now :-) C x
