Let's Celebrate!!

Welcome, so glad to see you this morning!
This week at Sugar Creek Hollow we are starting our challenges back
and we hope you are ready to join us!
This week's theme is celebrating something new, such as a
new job, home, love, baby or in my case a new year.

I created an easel style calendar and note holder for 2013.

I have been playing a bit with my new programs that I purchased
during Black Friday sales. I finally got my Silhouette Cameo 
machine that I had been talking about for months and months and during
the half off deal at Stampin' Up I decided to also buy the 
My Digital Studio program as well.
I must say that I love both of them and can't wait to learn 
much more about them both!

The calendar is from MDS and the scalloped background is from
Silhouette, I did an internal offset and created the next pink layer.

I took several pictures and will post those below. Love the floral lace and satin
ribbon which I added ribbon roses and buds to.

Even the back looks pretty!

Hope you have something wonderful to celebrate and will
join our team in our first challenge for 2013!

Oh wow GF, this is so soft and stunning. What a wonderful project to display that is also very functional. I've been debating between the Cameo and the Zing so let me know how well you like your Cameo. So glad you stopped by. I'm sure hoping to get around more this year to visit. "Hugs"
