Happy New Year!! Outdoor Adventures
I hope you had a safe & happy start to the new year!! We decided to take it easy & stay in. It was nice & relaxing. On New Year's Day, we watched the Rose Bowl Parade & the Mummers Parade. For those of you not from the Philly area, the Mummers have been a tradition in Philly for over 100 years. They are clowns, performers and string bands, plus so much more!! I really enjoy the string band portion. They really put on a show!!! Awesome music, sets and costumes! I wish it wasn't so cold or I would take the kids to see it live. If you'd like to see what they're about, check out About.com and this video on YouTube. There are tons more on the site, too. Click on any of the photos to see them a little larger.
Nicole has LOTs of exciting news on her site! She's started a forum with lots of fun threads for posting layouts, challenges to join and get info on freebies on other sites and so much more!! Check out this post on her blog to learn more! She has also released her first kit of the year, Outdoor adventures. This is the perfect kit for all of those camping, fishing and other outdoor photos you might have. I used the kit to do a layout from Disney World when we met Goofy in Animal Kingdom. Worked out great & really went with the colors in the photo. I love how versatile her kits are, so don't let the theme stop you!! Check out Outdoor Adventures now!! There is some really cute Word Art coming later in the week! Here's the preview and my layout:
