Happy New Year!

Would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year - may all your wishes for 2011 come true.
I know I should have posted this yesterday but I got a little distracted.

Two football matches to watch - both United and Arsenal were on TV and they both won so the family is happy. My SIL is very happy as Liverpool managed to win too.

My Kindle - I'm in love with this gadget and keep sitting down for a quick read..2 hours later I've read a whole book. Admittedly I'm reading very light stuff at the moment (and Christmassy light stuff at that) but I found some M&B books on Amazon for only £1 (or free!). Back to normal next week with murder and mayhem and some classics - mainly John Buchan.

Scrapbooking - yes, I managed some "me" time in my craft area. I made a LO for a scraplift challenge on WeScrap.
I actually used (oh the pain!) some of my Tim Holtz goodies - paper,tape,ribbon and star.
The rest was from my stash: the jewel tree is a fridge magnet,the wooden heart is a tree decoration, the silver and red embellie was the bow on a Christmas present from my SIL & brother, the other flowers were bought from ebay at least two years ago and the bingo number is from a very old  Lotto game that I found at Dad's.
Pictures are of Max wearing his Christmas bandanna - he doesn't mind wearing it but DS refused to take him out with it!

Hope you're all enjoying the first weekend of the year.
Hugs and sparkles.xx

Ahhhhh, Max looks so handsome!

Great use of 'found' objects - don't you love it when these bits and pieces can be used and look great?!

Happy New Year to you too.
