January NEW challenge by Debbie B.

Reader Debbie B. submitted this layout for the January New Challenge. She said:

Here is a layout I did for the "New" Challenge- I used only cardstock and no photos- instead I scrapped a poem that my daughter wrote- which both of these technigues are new to me- I was really stepping out of the box on this page. I used all cardstock and either embossed the sun & clouds, misted the masked stars, chalked the rainbow and drew some birds on the page. This will be a treasured page of my daughter for sure- it was a poem she wrote the night my father (her grandfather) passed away and I have saved it- so I thought I would put it into her scrapbook for wonderful memories.

Now it's your turn to take the January NEW Challenge. The January Challenge is anything doing with NEW - it could be a new tool, a new product, a new technique, or the project could have somehing to do with NEW - like New Years Eve - Our New Home, etc!. Anything goes! Have fun sharing something NEW with us.To participate in the January NEW Challenge - just email a picture of your project along with a description to Scrappinpsycho@live.com

All submissions will be posted to The Scrap Our Stash blog and on January 31st a winner will be chosen, and given the opportunity to be a Guest Design Team Member for the month of March. This challenge ends at midnight central time January 31st.
