a new year

 a new year has begun, where did last year go,

 well this year,  i'm thinking that  instead of  doing all the challenges every month.    only do some.    some months 

 some 13 months ago , i bought  papers ,dies, stamps to create double layouts, well they are still sitting on the floor waiting to be done, as i was going to    re vamp my  new zealand  album 

 also   some 5 years ago ,before challenges took over,  i was going to   do our home  album, which i  have done 4 pages of , i have all the  papers  still in the drawer taking space ,

so  thought that this year  i noticed that  123 challenge is having a GAP  year.  so i  may also do this as well and just have a play with things  i have bought over the last 2 years and not been able to get to

i have been busy i  have created a mini  60th album for my brother as well as a  85th album for my mum last year 2017. as well as a holiday  one  a calendar one , halloween  one,  now onto  one at the moment  with  orchid papers  i will try to load some photos up ,when i have more data after 22nd january,  where is it all going ? ? ?? ?  i have created 6 mini albums now with 7th  8th and 9th in the making ,   

im up at the library these next 20 days or so  to use the library  computers. for internet,

 well hope everyone has a happy new year, i certainly am looking for a better year, i must have killed some  china man last year , as i had 11 of my friends   pass away,   i don't want any this year,

 well, my time is almost up ,so   catch up with you soon , is it  22nd yet  lol 

thanks for stopping by

kelly anns december challenges

Hi  everyone,
 well  christmas is almost  upon us,  i will go buy stuff tomorrow ,we dont eat much at our household, so no christmas tree  or  any decorations have gone up this year , a first for  me    so only chicken, potato salad and   bread rolls this year, for us,
we are going to my sisters place on  the north side of town about an hour and 10 minute away.

as you may have noticed i havent been on  of late ,i bought a new  smart phone last month and am only catching up  with it  now, with all the bells and whistles , and today just found out how to  turn off my emails  yaa, but  of course while everything was on , it has been chewing up  my data. hopefully,  i have turned everything off and it will stay off  as i dont need over 200.00 bills every month,  of course some of it  for a technication     to come out and fix our home line, which was the whole street,  which the  phone still does not work after 2 days , so have now disconnected it
so i have had no data for  over  15 days , i wonder  how i survived before 2003  without internet, maybe cause i worked   8 - 10 hours a day and didnt own a computer  or  internet,  but  the last 15 day seem to be endless without chatting to my friends
the last  week i have been going down to the library,   nice and quite and cool there , 
my family member has seen that my bill is going to be  over $200   this month,    its a long story, so wont bore you with it ,
so ,  in the meantime,  i have created   4 of  kelly anns sketches  out of the 5  so far ,
I have been trying to clean up  my room with no success  as i  find things and think ,i can use that on , so now have been putting them into bags writing for next album or  for making of next years  christmas   cards
i am hoping that i  will find the floor before new year, i say that every year,  but  really i have to  get  onto it  on boxing day,
its amazing what you find in the drawers that you havent been  to for  a year, i found a present for my friend that i wrote on , give to liz  2015 then  crossed out 2016 crossed  out and here 2017 i will make sure she gets it in 2018. lol then i wil lhave more room in the drawer LOL

so  here are   kellys sketches,  thanks to  kym c for  creating the sketches for the   last  year, i have had fun  creating  layouts and getting some more of my  new zealand  photos  into the album











Merry Christmas  to you all 
 and a  Happy New Year
