December brings a lively new kit!

Wow - It is the last month of 2007. Ok, so where did this year go?? I started out with formula for Ezra and now I have a talking, busy toddler! The boys have all grown so much! Andrew is reading so well and kindergarten has been amazing for Cameron.

This kit was fun to work with but BOY it barely arrived on time!! My absolute favorite sheet of paper is the Making Memories GCountdown. Its hard to tell through the computer but there is glitter around several of the numbers. It was so fun to work with!


The Deja Views paper is very nice! This is the first time we have used them since they are started having 2-sided papers. I loved the sticker journaling pieces that matched it.
My favorite embellishment by far were the Making Memories circle bright crystal brads. There are 60 brads in 6 different colors. The layout below has several of the brads and a did a little doodling to enhance them. They look better in person! This is when Ezra was 1 week old. Even though it was in April, I felt like these colors went really well. I also cut the number 1 from that Making Memories sheet of paper :)


I cut some of my scraps into 2 inch squares for this design!
This is my favorite layout I did with the kit. It is probably because of the photo :) I also handcut holly leaves from the holly paper and outlined them in black.


This layout has a few items from the addon this month but was really simple to create:


December 2007 Kit - #49!!!
The great thing is I have not even used my whole kit yet! In fact, I hope to scrap a little more in the next few nights and use it up :)

If you have made it this far CONGRATULATIONS! I am going to draw a winner on Sunday from my post comments and send a little extra December kit grab bag to you :) (Anyone can win :) )

I stalk your site EVERY month. I stayed up until midnight Friday night to see the Dec 07 kit! I LOVE it and the layouts. They look like they would be easy to "lift" yet so professional! I miss getting your kits, but have bought a few past kits from WT. Anyway, my favorite of the layouts is "We Three Kings". SO CUTE!
