Going Grey with Scrap-Creations Challenge: Ring in the New year!

Happy Tuesday! Did you have a wonderful holiday? My family and I had a great Christmas. It was really nice to spend some much needed quality time with my family and friends.

So, it has been a little over a week since I have been out of school, and I am happy to announce, I am completely relaxed. I am really enjoying this muched needed break. Yesterday I sat and actually stamped for a few hours and today I did the same. It has been so ong since I have actually stamped without a purpose. Just for me and fun :)

This week we have another fantastic challenge for you....We are ringing in the New Year! I have decided not to go with your "typical" New years card. When I was choosing a image for this weeks challenge, I came across this fabulous image, and digi paper from Tiddly Inks. I just can't resist these goth girls. I swear I am a goth girl deep down, and I just loved the sentiment. Every year I make the same New Years resolution.....Lose weight, and every year I blow the resolution, so this year, I am resolution free, and yes, I am always on a diet, so maybe one day I will lose that weight, or not! Sometimes we just have to except ourselves for what we are, and just do the best we can....right???

So last week the DT and I took a holiday break, and I ran a recipe contest. All you had to do was tell me your favorite thing to bake on the holidays, and it was so nice to hear all your yummy recipes. I also said I would be sending one person a surprise gift, so using random.org the winner of the recipe givaway is :

Cute card for your inner goth! If you dye your hair and start wearing all black, I will worry!

This is fantastic, Kristen! I love the sentiment too. I never ever keep mine so I didn't make one last year and I won't this year either.

OMG, I don't even remember entering to win! I will email you.
Thanks! What a surprise!

Enjoy the rest of your break.
