January NEW Challenge by Stacy

Design Team Member Stacy submitted this layout for the January NEW Challenge.  She said:

Happy New Year!! Stacy here.

I'm so happy to finally have life slow down a bit and go back to normal. I have been dying to scrap but wasn't really able to find the time with all the holiday madness. I was lucky to get a few new scrappy things for Christmas and am happy to now have time to use them!! How about you?? Did you get some scrappy goodness. And are you ready to use it?? Well, I hope that our January NEW Challenge inspires you to scrap some of your "new" stuff and share them with us here!!

I decided to make a layout for this challenge project. It is a layout about my daughter's school field trip to the mountains. I thought documenting her new adventures would be perfect for this challenge! I also was happy to use the new edge punch I got in my stocking. ha

Almost everything on this layout is Basic Grey Origin goodies that I had in my stash! I think the only thing not from my stash was the photo and the sparkly yellow alphas that are from Pink Paislee's Sweetness collection. Look at me using up my stash!! Woo hoo!! lol

I had fun making this layout and the best thing is that my daughter loves it. I hope you enjoyed looking at it too.

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 something 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.
