Challenge 67 New Beginnings

Hello this is Lisa and I'm here to share my first challenge. I have a lot of friends getting married, moving house and having babies so it would have been silly of me to pick a theme that wasn't NEW BEGINNINGS. I would love to see you create something to celebrate a New Beginning. I've already given a couple of suggestions above, but the possibilties are endless...New Job, Graduation, Retirement, etc, etc.

Now onto the fantastic inspiration from the DT:

I used Sarah Hurley papers and Postcard as my journalling tag

This is the first page in a new creative journal, I used Sarah's Spray Inks, Black for the splats in the background & candyfloss pink to colour the corrugated card hearts, I also used papers from the Sarah's Craft Basics Collection for the collaged circles & the Blue Polka Dot Paper from the Britannia CD with the Woodland Whimsies Stamp Set for the clouds as well as words cut from the Steampunk CD word & alpha sheet.

I used papers from Sarah's Britannia CD and combined them with Tim Holtz Alterations dies to make this Bon Voyage card.
I used an assortment of Sarah Hurley papers to decorate my journal page. 
I've used pastel papers from Sarah's Craft Basics Collection to create a New Baby card. I've tried to keep the colours neutral as our friends baby isn't due until September and they don't know what they're having.

I mad this wee Baby's Buggy using the gorjuss Purple Gingham Basic Collection

I do hope you join us for my first challenge theme and we look forward to seeing your projects - you have until midnight on 3rd June to enter - just click below to submit your link!
