Happy New Year

First of all I'd like to wish you  a very Happy New Year and hope that 2016 will be full of  great things for all of you! It's been a busy couple of weeks for me, taken up with friends and family, so apologies if I've been a bit lax with visiting and comments, life should be getting back to normal now the festivities are over....quite a relief as far as eating and drinking are concerned!
On to todays creation which is my DT project for this month's challenge at Crafty Calendar...the theme...'Something New'. We have 2 amazing sponsors this month Wild Orchid Crafts and All Dressed Up stamps, who gave the DT some beautiful images to play with! I made this snowglobe box using a template from Sandra's Scrapshop (my 'something new'). These templates are amazing...and easy to use! I coloured the cute Cool Dudes digi, which includes the boy and the dog, and then ruthlessly cut it up to fit in the 'globe'! I added some small 'snowballs' behind the acetate. The little dog is attached to the wooden tag on the front! The box was filled with choc coins (and some cash!) as a gift for my nephew! He liked it!

Thanks for looking today, please take the time to pop over here and see what my lovely teamies have made for you to enjoy. Then it's your turn to get out all those wonderful new goodies that Santa brought you and join in!
