Happy New Year!

Welcome to the New Year - another year of  big changes afoot and some crafting journeys ... starting with new challenges with Scrapology.  Many of you will know Elaine from Scrap 365 magazine, Paper Arts Shop and her blog The Distressed Scrapper.
This month, we are scraplifting this layout, which appeared on a cover of Scrap 365:-

So the challenge this month was to use tags. 

Being December, I had no chance to start this layout until Christmas was finished, and managed to grab an hour and a bit yesterday to get this layout done, albeit a very simplified version:

I was very pleased to pull this layout out of the bag with limited time.  Its always a bonus to use up more very old stash, too!  This time, some of the original Basic Grey, which I do still love.  I have just one tag left from the Tags and Labels sheet, so that will have to be used up on a card at some point - so to scraplift this layout was a perfect challenge with these supplies.  A friend had given me a Christmas kit some years ago, so the embellishments were also just simply pulled out of a bag. 
Happy New Year to everyone - hopefully you now have some spare time to take part in our challenge.  Hope it brings health and happiness for everyone.
