Happy New Year at Winter Wonderland

A Happy Sunday Morning to you all, well only 5 more sleeps and Santa will be here, I am getting alll ickapicsited........LOL.  I managed to get some christmas shopping done yesterday, whilst driving in blizzard conditions, my car handled the snow beautifully, so we got home safe and sound if not more than a little sore, I am hoping to get things wrapped up today and get a bit of crafting done, still a few christmas cards to do.....where has the time went....Well today at Winter Wonderland we want to see "Happy New Year" projects.....we have a fantastic Guest DT Marianne joining us, so please pop over and give her your support, along with all our usual, talented DT sisters.....we have a new sponsor this week In Style Stamps, so get your proejcts in for a chance to win a fab prize.....I bought a diary from the £1 store and decided to cover it, this is did with some of the New K&Co papers that were a TSV recently on QVC, I used some free images from one of the craft magazine (sorry cannot remember which one, as I have so many, just bought another 2 yesterday, I think I am addicted to buying them too....LOL). I made a wee envelopes at the back, using a CD cover, for notes.....I know I will be using this next year for my blogging......and it only cost a £1.....hope you all like it.....Much Love Avril xxxxx

What a great idea! I used to buy loads of magazines too, sort of addicted myself for a while, but then I just stopped. Only buy the odd one now and again, when there is something that interests me on the cover!
Enjoy the snow - keep safe.
