New Year Resolutions

Happy New Year!

How is 2013 so far? Mine could have started better. We returned home from a great New Year's party to find out that we had been burgled. GRRRR. It could have been worse but it has caused me a few sleepless nights since.

Anyway, one of my resolutions is to blog more frequently or regularly which has almost failed at the first post! So as I haven't scrapped much over Christmas because of flu and my mojo taking a break, I'll share another layout that I did for Merly Impressions a little while ago.

The Pickled Pear Collection is a fabulous mix of vintage and shabby chic (just my cuppa tea).

I used a mixture of stamps to add detail to the background before embellishing. 

The Vintage Garden Boutique Buttons are a perfect compliment to the collection.

Check out the full details over at Merly Impressions blog.

Thanks for popping in.


  1. Great layout, I love these papers - not seen them before.

  2. So sorry to read of the burglary - a dreadful experience and one that can take some time to get over so I hope you are sleeping better now. Beautiful layout - I love the background paper - anything wood works as a great background. Lovely embellishment cluster too. Wishing you a happy, healthy and prosperous 2013. Elizabeth xx

  3. Oh great LO! Love the background and the photo is so cuty!
