Happy New Year

I've been working on a lot of heritage layouts lately, so I decided to mix it up and do something current. One of our family traditions is to take photos on New Year's Day.  We don't do any type of planned formal photo shoot, each of us snaps a picture of the other two just as we are.  These photos were taken around 1 AM on New Years Day, after we got home from Watch Night service at church.

I used 2 digis from the Daydream Designs Happy New Year set for my title block.    I used the outline set which has black and white images, so that I could custom color them to match my layout.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you're staying nice and warm. We're in the midst of our second major snowstorm in 2 weeks, which is unheard of in Virginia.

I am linking this up to Word Art Wednesday Challenge 117 - Anything Goes

  7. What an awesome page, Gemiel! Great lay-out and beautiful family too. So delighted you shared your artwork with us at Word Art Wednesday. Want to leave you with a verse coming from 1 John 5:4 which says, "For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith." Have a blessed week!
