Happy new year my dear blogging buddies! I do hope you all had a fabulous festive holiday!?
We had an absolutely lovely time with family doing the usual thing of eating way too much, watching lots of movies and taking lovely long walks by the beach. It was so lovely to have such a restful (and almost internet free) break, but now I'm ready and raring to go with this bright and shiny new year!
I have lots of new ideas I want to put into action in 2011 and have some thoughts on giving a new lease of life to a few old ones. Just thinking of the possibilities of these ideas has me feeling giddy! Of course I will tell you more about them over the coming weeks and months... :)
I'm also really excited about seeing the inspirational creativity that you guys will come up with over the coming year. If 2010 is anything to go by I know that this year you will all outdo yourselves with your crafty ideas... :)
Until then lets get back to our first 'colour your monday happy' collection of 2011. Thank you to everyone who continued to submit images to 'all colours in' over the holidays, you never fail to astound me with your energy and enthusiasm for this wee group! Today's collection is but a tiny handful of my favourites from the newest submissions. I'm loving the colourful vintage crafting vibe and one very cute cat... :)

Wishing you all the most fabulous Monday...
Emma, x
