New House

Welcome to the first challenge of the new year from the Love To Scrap Challenge Blog.  As we are beginning a new year, our challenge is: New Beginnings (New Year, New Baby, New Home, etc.)  The sponsors for this challenge are:



I was given the choice of images from Dr. Digis and I chose this adorable little painter.  Isn't he cute?
My sister and brother-in-law just moved to our town.  Right now they are living with family, but pretty soon, they will have to find a house of their own.  So, I thought a card celebrating a new home would be perfect for them and this challenge.  Come, play along.  I can't wait to see what new beginnings you are celebrating.
