Yes, new year ... new hobby. Crochet. Actually, I began to crochet just last week. It started out as an adventure i.e to try make my own embellishments for my scrapbook layouts. Simple ones, like paper flowers, ribbon flowers and crochet flowers. I was lucky to find a very good tutorial of how to make crochet flower at Little Birdie Secrets.
Then I saw Challenge Me Happy website featuring their latest 'word' challenge (Challenge #15). Scrappers are invited to create a layout around the word 'NEW'. This is a perfect opportunity for me to scrap my new found hobby and at the same time, have a chance at winning Little Yellow House kits. Yum!
So, this is what I came up with. A simple 12" X 12" layout with off-white background because I'd already used a very colorful photo. And plus, some colorful crocheted flowers as embellishments.
It says " Crochet. My new hobby. I had so much fun crocheting, I wonder why hadn't I tried sooner??".
I'm inspired to learn how to make doilies and granny squares next. And if they turn out nicely, I may write about it.
