Today's Challenge: New Years! Make something that makes you think of New Years! Be creative and have fun!

Here is my Project for the Challenge:

I purchased a pack of 12 x 12 frames from Michael's during their Black Friday Sales... amazing deal!  My intention was different than this but then I had this idea.  Monthly goals... mainly because I am horrible about resolutions.  So I figure having this on my desk as a daily reminder... AWESOME.

My main goals for January are to find ways to destress!  Can you tell?  hehehe

Paper:  Carta Bella - Winter Fun
Adhesive:  3 in 1 by Beacon
Trim:  Silver Snowflakes
Stamps: TPC Studio - Elegant Alphabet
Ink: Texas Chocolate by MPS
12 x 12 Frame from Michael's

Love these cut files from Silhouette.

Link your project Above.

The winner will be announced Next Saturday along with our new Challenge.

June of Simply Elegant Paper Crafts, our featured Designer for January will select our winners each week in January.  June will not be able to join us for this blog hop but send June some special love - HERE!

Make your day fabulous ... go play with Paper!
