01/02/18 - NYE 2017

Hi and Happy New Year!
I created this layout yesterday.
Not my first layout of 2018, but my first 12x12.
3 regular sized photos = 12x12...
since I am trying to be more deliberate as to what/why I choose to scrap on the larger size.
"NYE 2017"
"Hamlet spent NYE the way he spent most of 2017... cuddled in a blanket, sleeping.
After he went to bed, Spotty took over.
> Nothing Changes <
Yes, the ringing in of 2018 was a wild one for us, LOL!
David and I were both awake when the ball dropped but we actually missed it because we were watching something else and we were going to switch over just in time to watch it but it turned out our living room clock was slow, DOH!
We heard fire works going off outside, and we we're like "what?! It's not even time yet?!" and we switched the channel over and saw that the ball had already dropped!
Oops, such a great start to the New Year, NOT!
Oh well...LOL
This layout was inspired by the following SB.com Jan, 2018 challenges:

>>Scrap Your Pet
*INCLUDES TWIST* of polka dots

>>Musical Inspiration
The song chosen for me was "New Years Day" by U2
I chose the line "Nothing Changes" and included it as part of my journaling.
*INCLUDES TWIST* of using new products

>>Last Photo(s) of 2017
These 3 are the last 3 photos of 2017.
The bottom photo of my dog, Spotty, is the actual last photo of 2017.
I hope your NYE went well and that 2018 is kind to you!

  1. Yea - I love Hamlet layouts! The polka dots falling are perfect for a NYE spread. What is Hamlet's daily routine? I need a whole post about life with a house pig!!

    1. Eating, rooting, sleeping and belly rubs (plus, well potty-time, LOL) is his basic daily routine!

  2. Loveeeeeeee this! LOVING those photos and the colors! And LOL to missing the ball drop -- I was in bed by 9:30 that night! HA!!!!!

  3. Happy New Year! Ours was almost the same we had to rewind the TV! hahaha
    Looking forward to another year of following your crafty layouts!

  4. Happy New Year!!! Great fun layout :D
