It is a NEW YEAR with NEW beginnings

It has been a REALLY long time since I've posted on my blog. I just didn't have the desire to share much on here the last half of the year but I am feeling good about a new year and a fresh start. I want to try to give my blog a bit more attention these days. You'll be seeing more of me playing along with Unity Stamp Co as I'm now going to be in their regular rotation, not just doing videos which I'm super exited about. Plus, I'm also planning a blog makeover so be sure to stay tuned. It's back to remembering what truly makes me happy and what truly matters in life: my family, our simple life and the love of crafting. I'm really excited about new beginnings!!!
The first project I'm sharing this new year is a project made for our first challenge of the new year at 7 Kids College Fund. For our first challenge of the new year, we're creating WOW projects, wow being White On White!!! I've always been in awe of this elegant style so I had to give it a try. As always, we're giving away a $20 shopping spree to 7 Kids Colleg Fund to the winner of this challenge (chosen at random) so be sure to check out the Challenge Blog for MORE information and to enter!
This project couldn't come to life with out the use of my favorite Helmar products. Please check out my post on Helmar's Blog today to find out what I used and how I am able to make those butterflies look as if they are about to take flight off the card.
