Scrapbooking Global January 2020 Blog Hop

So I decided to take this month's Scrapbooking Global challenge of New Beginnings!    I took a picture new year's eve.   I wanted a photo to remind me of the end of 2019 and the beginning of 2020.   A new year and a new decade.   I want to see how much I will change in the year and decade ahead.    I am starting out on a positive outlook filled with possibilities.     So many things have happened in the past decade.   So many lessons learned,  laughter filled with heartache and also lots of joy.    I know I have learned to appreciate everything that is my life.   Trying to live in gratitude and with a positive outlook.

I decided to use the Wrapped in Plaid designer series paper for color inspiration.   The title was die cut with the Hand Lettered framelits.    The sentiment comes from the Everything Festive stamp set.   I masked part of the sentiment for the page and die cut it in a Stitched Nested Labels.  

Trees were stamped from the Rooted in Nature stamp set.   If you don't have this beauty, I highly suggest adding it to your stamp collection.    Lastly strips of card stock, Wrapped in Plaid designer paper, Tags & Feather elements, Festive Farmhouse elements and True Gentlemen buttons were added as finishing touches.   

I am the last stop in the hop, so to start over, you will be heading to Sara Levin.      

If for some reason you get lost or the hop one of the links is broken here is the complete list of hoppers.
