January challenge by Karen

I know the challenge is to do something new, but I am always way behind the times with scrapbooking trends! I have very recently bought my first two bottles of misters and have used one of these for my "new" LO.  Anyway, I used the frame from some old chipboard letters and misted through to make an alphabet background paper which I thought went really well with my son's school photo from this year.




Now it's your turn to take the January New Challenge.  See all the details HERE.
