Happy New Year- A Fusion Celebration!

Happy 2015 to you and yours!  I hope that you rang in this New Years in the best way possible!  I'd love to know just what you did and how you celebrated, do tell!  

Meanwhile, we are celebrating another occasion here.  Fusion is celebrating it's one year Anniversary (the re-grand opening that is) and we have a super fun party happening.  Head over to the Fusion blog to check it out.  BUT before you go...... I have some fin in store for you here as well. 

Here is the amazing fun sketch and inspiration for this challenge:

Here is the creation that I've made for this Birthday Celebration.  I used a ton of fun products... SU! paper and embossing powder, Neat and Tangled sentiment, Little B washi tape, Lawn Fawn star dies and Top Dog Dies.  I love the mix of pink, black and the gold.  Regal and fitting for this celebration.  

Now what's really exciting, is that each one of the DT has gotten to chose a guest for this celebration.  I have chosen the ever amazing Joni Nina Andaya!  Every creation she makes sparks my sense of wonder and awe.  How she does it?  I am not sure, but it is nothing short of miraculous!  So with that I give you Joni (Papell with Love) and her beautiful creation. 

Amazing or what?  Words can't describe how happy this makes me feel.  Anyone would be so lucky to get such a caring card.  I am lucky to have her as my guest. I can't tell her how thankful I am that she has joined us for this celebration.  

Please, please go to the Fusion blog and see the other amazing guest designers and their creations.  Then give your hand a try at the challenge, it is sure to start you 2015 out on a positive note!

Happy New Year and Happy Birthday to Fusion!  Big Thanks to Lesley Croghan for all her work on the Fusion blog!!!!

Hi Katie! What adorable washi flags you have coming out of the mason jar! The frame over your banner adds an interesting element too. So fun! Sure hope you have a wonderful New Year's Day!
