Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! I've got a few projects but haven't had a lot of time for crafting lately - guess I'll make that a New Year's resolution: More time for fun things! The first project is a mini-album I did for My Creative Scrapbook called "Joy". This is for the January Mini-album Kit:

(Click images to enlarge)


I'm not real crazy about how the photos of this mini-album came out. I usually use a white background when taking photos but since the pages of the album were painted white, I used a very pale pink background and it seems to make the photos darker and duller for some reason. Guess I learned something new - I'll just stick with white.

I loved making this mini-album! I decided to turn the album sideways and make it tall (instead of wide as it was intended). All of the papers and embellishments are in the January Kit.

Next I have a few little projects that I did for Sweet Shoppe Designs:


Isn't this kit ADORABLE??? It's called Snow Buddies by Lauren Grier and Sir Scrapalot :)


And THIS kit by Manda is as cute as can be too!!! This kit is called "Owl Love You Forever".

Speaking of the Sweet Shoppe, there are some fun new things in store for hybrid in 2009....I'll post more details soon!

Well, the holidays are over and its time to get back into the old routine :( But....here's wishing you a happy, healthy, safe and prosperous 2009!
