What You Reading for a Lasting Memories challenge

Wow 2017 is upon us! How exciting and I think it's going to be a good year for us. We both think that with our household goals for this year will make it a good year. I've got lots of cleaning out the old this year, lots from my old business to get cleaned.
My goals for my scrappy life I will post tomorrow and looking forward to a scrappy year this coming year!

This month's theme over at Lasting Memories was brought to us by our Design Team sister Lori and the theme is: "Stash buster" challenge - Let's show these neglected items in our stash a little love in the new year! This Week's Challenge is: Punches - Use those punches on your layout! Any type of punch - border punches, shape punches, and if you don't have punches, use  die cut/ephemera. Lots of cool inspiration over at Lasting Memories from the Design Team. Here is what I created:
This is Zachary January 25, 2012 Katherine posted this photo on Facebook and I responded "What's that the sports section or the financial section he's reading?" Got to love this! Just about 1 1/2 yrs old here. I used my favorite punch for this layout and used a variety of paper that makes me think of newsprint. the title I created with an alpha I thought looked great as it's similiar to a newspaper. A fun layout to create and the punches of blue gives it a nice touch. 
Thank you for stopping by today and I do hope you enjoy this 1st day of the new year......
