Altered Printer's Tray!

Happy New Year's Eve to you! It is hard to believe that 2010 is just about over. It must be a sign that I am getting older, because the years, months, weeks.....just seem to fly by!

I bought this printer's tray at Archivers ages ago and finally got around to altering it. I used lots of Cosmo Cricket, Circa 1934 paper as well as Theresa Collins Gratitude line. I used a few miscellaneous pieces I had as well as a flower I created using Provo Craft's quilling kit. I love these colors together because my living room is a golden yellow and my kitchen, that opens up from the living room, is a cranberry red. I plan on placing this on my fireplace mantel. They are all of my favorite pictures from this past year. My lil' family. Love them....and am so very grateful for them.
I love being able to add dimension to my projects! : )

Here are a few close ups......first off is my beautiful girl........
And my handsome dude......
And of course my lil' fur baby, Skippers, has to be included too!
Brian and I celebrating 17 years of marriage together!
My two guys together.......
All of us......taken on our mini vacation to French Lick, Indiana.
So what is everyone doing for New Year's? I am just staying home with the hubby and kids. We usually do game night, cook up some steak and lobster, drink a bit of bubbly and then watch the countdown on TV. The days of partying are long behind me, I am content to stay home and snuggle up on the couch.
What are your plans for the New Year's Eve celebration? Whatever you do, be safe, and have a Happy New YEAR!

Your printer's tray is so striking, Michele! I love the touches of red with the black & white photos.

We're celebrating New Year's with some other families - visiting, snacking, playing games, relaxing.

Wishing you & your family a wonderful New Year!

Staying in-until it's time for the watchnight service at church at 11:30. What a way to send out the old and bring in the new year-in God's house!

Wow, how gorgeous is that! And so special. Our New Year's Eve is quiet this year. We had planned to play fireworks, but we're still pooped from the holiday festivities so we decided to stay home, have pizza & chicken wings and watch some DVDs, lol. Tomorrow, New Year's we have two family parties to go to. Happy New Year! Wishing you & yours the best year yet!
