Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to Everyone.

A BIG Hello and welcome back to my blog.

I haven't scrapped  a layout since August.

I spent September and early October planning, organizing and preparing for my Daughters wedding....see a couple of photo in the post below.
October also saw me take on the Head Stewards role for the 
Hobbies and Handicraft section at the Cummins Show.
My Dad also celebrated his 80th Birthday with Family and Friends.
Early November I had a few days away in Adelaide with  Sarah and  
finished my Christmas shopping. 
An early start saw us get second row seats at the Christmas Pageant, but we  still had a good view.
Kevin and Matthew had time away at the Test Cricket in Adelaide.
December is always a pretty bust time in the Post Office leading up to Christmas.
It is a wonderful time of the year.
Hence I had limited scrapping time.

But I am back and looking forward to scrapping again in 2016.

To get me inspired I decided to create some simple and easy Christmas Cards.
Here is a sample of some I made.
Pinterest is a great place for ideas and Inspiration
Thanks to my lovely Mum for cutting out lots of Christmas elements for me to add to the cards.
It really is amazing what you can create using up scrap pieces of paper.
Some of the papers I have used have been in my stash since I first started scrapping, 
 probably 8 years ago. 
Note to self: Watch tutorials and give them a try...it is so much fun.
Thanks to those who share their creative talents for me to enjoy.








Thanks for stopping by!

I hope you All had a wonderful Christmas and I would like to wish you all the Best for 2016.

Love 
Janice xx
