My Woodland Critter project is a layout with skunks, raccoon, and squirrel sitting around a campfire.

  The Skunks and fire are svg files from Kadoodle Bug Designs.  The tree, moon, stars and raccoon are svg files from Stinkin Cute.  And the title and squirrel are from Cricut Design space subscription.  The Paper is from BoBunny.    The pictures are from our first trip to Leelanau State Park on the Leelanau.  Now, we go every summer!  Leelanau is my happy place.  I thought these cute woodland animals were perfect for a layout of our campfire as we always see a raccoon and squirrels.  And the skunks roasting marshmallows and a hot dog were so stinkin cute I just had to use as they seem perfect for the layout.
 On the rocks of the campfire and the rock that the raccoon is hiding behind and the one the skunk is sitting on, I used a Martha Stewart silver glitter pen.  I also used a pink glitter pen on the skunks' noses.  Otherwise, I used stickles on the animals, moon, title, and tree.

Here is the line-up in case you get lost.
Well, I hope you enjoyed my woodland critter layout, and now it is time wander through the forest over to Ronnel to see her adorable little woodland critters.

Ringing in the New Year Blog Hop

Welcome to the Ringing in the New Year Blog Hop.  This is a one day hop with ____ stops along the way that will be filled with all different kinds of  projects.  You will see cards, layouts, altered art, and all kinds of amazing wonderful projects to inspire you in the New Year.  So be sure to grab your favorite beverage and hop through this inspirational blog hop.   Before we go any further though I want to make sure that you stopped here after visiting Connie be sure to click HERE if you need to start at the beginning.

For my project, I made a simple a New Year's card and three layouts.  The card is 6x12, scored at 6.  I used circle cutter to make the ornaments from vellum paper.

 And, my layouts.  I don't have pictures or mats yet as I made them for this year's new activities.  Very simple layouts as my goal this year is to get as many scrapbook pages done as possible.
 Fortunately, we got snow yesterday so I was able to take some pictures for these two layout.

Here is a complete line up for the hop in case you get lost along the way. You wont want to miss any of the wonderful projects these talented ladies have made.

Thanks for stopping by, but it is time to head over to Lori as I know she has something terrific to share with you.
