Happy New Year scrappers!  Tamara here stopping by for another template Tuesday reveal and I am so excited to present to you the very first template freebie for the year!! It is so hard to believe that another year has come and gone but I must say, I am looking forward to this year with a renewed energy and an excitement for good things to come! 2013 is going to be full of changes for my family as another one of my children will leave the nest, and though I am feeling excited for my babies as they start a life of their own, I can’t help but long for those days when they were young again. Thank goodness I have scrapbooking to help me fill in the voids and recall all those special times when they were my “babies”!

This year, I made a special resolution that I would take one child at a time and finish scrapping ALL of their photos AND have their books printed! I am horrible about making the pages and then not printing them. Lately, however, I have been seeing some of your pages in print and I am just floored at how gorgeous they are!  You all have inspired me to complete a book this year…and of course, the best place to start is a freebee template!!!

Today, in order to get you started out right for the new year, I have a fabulous template by Little Green Frog Designs that will make any page look fabulous!!

I just fell in love with this template and I love how my page turned out! I am definitely adding this one in my new book and that makes me one page closer now to finishing!


I  used this gorgeous new kit from Red Ivy called Pink Mittens! I just love the the warm colors and the whimsical elements!


I hope you enjoy your template freebie this week and more than that, I hope that 2013 brings you all of your special wishes!   Don’t forget that if you download this pretty template,  come back and link me up here so that I can leave you some love!! I love seeing your layouts and watching your families grow throughout the year as well!

Happy New Year to you all…and happy scrapping!
