Crafty Ribbons 'New Beginnings'

Good evening everyone, hope you are well! I swear today has just flown by, so sorry this is a little late. First of all I want to wish you all a fantastic New Year, I really do value each and every one of my followers and the support you give to me and my little blog in blogland-it means a lot!
It is our new challenge at Crafty Ribbons Challenge where our theme is 'New Beginnings'-so perfect for the start of a New Year :-) I decided to make a series of canvases to decorate the home with-pretty new art for a pretty New Year! I used beach themed ribbons from Crafty Ribbons Store as my base then chose three of my favourite ever photos of beaches or holidays which I printed on canvas. I painted my canvas with a complimenting blue colour and glued the ribbons and canvas as I liked them. I'd love to know what you think?!

While I am here I have some very exciting news-a few months ago I was asked to submit a project to Craft Stamper magazine and my lovely DT friend Jaine told me yesterday that I have made the cover! The magazine comes out tomorrow so if you happen to get a copy I would love if you could pop by and let me know what you think!

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Crafty Creations Challenges: Anything Goes
Divas By Design: Anything Goes
Ladybug Crafts: Anything But a Card
Tando Creative: Feeling Blue
2 Sisters: Anything But a Card

Thank you for looking and for all your lovely comments!
