New Beginnings

This is the January Cocoa Daisy kit I was telling you about, lots of Basic Grey Origins, and American crafts Letterbox. Here are my layouts. This first one uses the rub-ons and paper from the add-ons (Happiness and Anticipation respectively), everything else from the main kit.
Since I was inspired by the rub-ons in the title from the first one, I decided to let the rub-ons guide me again! The rub-on is from the add-on Happiness. J was using those binoculars as a camera, running around "shooting" everything making a clicking noise. Where do children get these notions? Darn that tv. :)
This layout is my favorite I think. I love the colors and it really is how I feel right now, very chilly! Some paper is from the add-on Anticipation, the rest is from the main kit. The rub-ons and Pink paislee alphas were from the add-on Happiness.
This layout didn't turn out like I had planned. The JBS calendar is from the add-on Unwritten (however I had it in my stash from the gdt I did for them earlier this month). Everything else is from the main kit except the rub-ons and BG woolies (Happiness). My favorite thing is that card. I thought it looked like a seed packet, so I included it on the page. But it actually says in french that it has syrup of a basket weaver to cure any common ailment. ??? Oh well. It looks pretty. :)
This one is a page that I left half complete that I found when I was cleaning out for the move, eek! For like 2 years! I loved the journaling, so I cut it apart from the half done page. I reprinted the photo and added paper from the main kit and the add-on Anticipation. Then I added those American Crafts Letterbox Pearl brads that I had in my stash (also in the add-on unwritten). The gee is what my son called our dog (as in (do)g-ee). I love that photo of J and the pug. It's one of my very very favorite. Ever. It's moments like this I thank God I'm a scrapper, because even though I was there and saw it, my sleep deprived mind didn't register it. I need the evidence.
This last layout was a last moment edition before I left for the holidays. I had a fight with my printer and the journaling is on the back. The reason I did the notebook spiral punch? It's all I had left after I took a bunch of stuff over to my new house. Necessity. Everything from the main kit except the 'candy cane' alpha (Happiness add-on) and that American crafts Foil Merrymint candy cane I had in my stash. It was just too cute not to add it.
Happy Holidays and Happy new year to all who stop by! I'm too tired to make any resolutions. Does resolving to get all my crap over to the new house come heck or high water (or snow, ice or blizzard) count? I didn't think so. :)
