Happy New Year

I have been scrapping my granddaughters first holidays all year long.   With her first birthday coming up on January 26th,  her first New Year was the last "first" holiday to document.     It was kind of sad making this final layout of her first holidays.  But there will always be new first experiences to come in her life.

I'm entering this layout in 3 different challenges.

First is   "LET'S GET SKETCHY"  I used their January 1st sketch.


Second is the challenge at   "GRAND DIVA'S CREATIVE CORNER"

     Select one of the history fancy and create a layout inspired by that fact.
#1 Jan 1 1908 = The ball first dropped at Times Square in NYC.:
Create a layout about a celebration AND you must include gold embellishments &/or alphas.

#2 Jan 12 1966 Batman debuts on televisions:
Creat a super hero theme layout AND you must include stars on your layouts.

#3 Jan 14 1973 - The Miami Dolphins defeat the Washington Redskins in Superowl VII, to become the first undefeated team in NFL history.
Create a sports themed layout AND you must include a banner on your layout.

#4 Jan 15 1974 - Happy Days premiers on television:
Create a layout with the word HAPPY as your title or part of your title. AND you must use Thickers
or Sticker letters.

My layout actually works for both #1 and #4   I used gold alphas on the layout and for #4 my title is Happy and I used Thickers

Last but far from least is "LASTING MEMORIES" and their Word Play - Happy

LM #376 - Happy - use some form of the word "Happy" on your layout.

This can be in your title, in your journaling, or even on an embellishment, just show us some form of the word happy (happy, happiness, happiest, etc.) on your layout.
