Happy New Year Scrappy Friends!!

I love starting a New Year, making resolutions and committing myself to new goals and setting standards for a new ambition!  Although this photo is a general, albeit sweet, photo of my brown eyed girls, it makes me think about the 5 years that Lola has been with us.  Time seems to fly by and I want to make sure I get as many moments documented as possible.ALWAYS shine_SBC_January 2016 border

I took the Scrapbook Circle exclusive acrylic word die and rubbed several different inks on it…I wanted to tone it down just a touch from the bright yellow.  I wanted to use it on this page and would be using the more muted reds, almost pinks, so I rubbed it with a couple darker coral and teal chalk inks.  It was a perfect way to mute the color and still tie in the die cuts.

I used several different colors of Distress Ink to add some color to the background, in a loose watercolor wash.

I love the origami bird die cuts and although I wanted to use them all, I just used this one, next to my title…

The January kit has so many lovely embellishments, it is hard to make a decision at all!

Hope you have a lovely day and are inspired to go forth and create!!
