One Year Ends A New One Starts ~ New Beginnings

Happy New Year ! Gee where did 2012 go? Frankly I am happy it is over and a New one has begun. I would like to wish everyone a wonderful 2013 and may all your dreams come true. So..... Talking about New Beginnings that is my challenge to you this month, to scrap a layout that means New Beginnings to you. I can't wait to see what you all come up with. And now I have the pleasure of introducing our Guest Designer for the month, a very sweet lady, I am sure a lot of you will know her......ta da.....Kerri Smith

 Thank you girls for asking me to be your guest GD for January, I was quite surprised and am very happy to be part of your wonderful blog here!
My name is Kerri and I have two sons; Cody is 20 and Jayden is 15.  We live in Colac, Victoria with our two Jack Russell’s; Willo and Nitro, our cat Sam and now we have adopted ‘Trishka” my son’s gorgeous cat!! It is a zoo!!!
I have been Caring for my mum and dad since June 2009 and they have just gone into full time age care.  I am having a bit of a break to look after my family; to get back to my garden, scrapbooking, just life in general! Then I plan on going back to school to Nurse!
I have been scraping for a while now and I love being able to scrap for my boys, and tell our family stories. I am currently a DT at Home and Scrapped.
I don’t really think I have a style, although I love distressing and ink and atm trying to be a bit more linear and not embellish too much! Lol! I love pp, sewing on my layouts, washi tape and of course Stamping as I have just been promoted to a Senior Supervisor with Stampin’ Up! J
I have a blog, I like to surf the net, have a go at challenges and of course take lots of photos!  I like to keep you updated with the bits and pieces of our life! My blog is http://www.myscrapnaddiction.wordpress.com
My layout I created for you is about my new beginning for 2013!  My “One Little Word Challenge” I am beginning, and working on all year. J
 I hope to SIMPLIFY my life in 2013! J

 And Kerri's take on the challenge

Thank You Kerri so much for being our GD this month

For my layout I based it on the A New Year beginning and how I want to embrace it and all its adventures

Next Kim and Annette will post their layouts :)

Hi all....(Kim here)
Finally I hear you all say....sorry I've been a bit slow this month....I'll have to blame the kids, nah! It's their slack mother.
  Thanks to Kerri for being our awesome GD for the start of 2013. I took my lead from Kerri and scrapped a word for 2013 and my word is GRATITUDE a word I want my children to remember!!!
 For all that we consider to not be right in our lives we must remember that there is always something to be thankful for...
 I am thankful for my beautiful children.

Hope you find some time in the next couple of days to do this challenge....would love to see your take.
