Gossamer Blue's January Kits are now live! They are bright and fun and colorful. Lori packed them full of Pink Paislee, Simple Stories, October Afternoon and Studio Calico. As always, there are awesome exclusive cards in the Life's Pages kit and there are beautiful exclusive papers. (I used my favorite for my GB blog post which will be up later.)

Here are my LP spreads for this month. This first one uses lots of the exclusive wood veneers that came with the kit. I LOVE them, especially the frame.
 


One of the big things that happened that week, was that I washed my iPhone with the laundry. It was quite traumatic! So, I felt like that deserved it's own page. ;)


The "Just Keep Smilin'" was cut from another card and adhered to a white card along with the picture of Ryan getting his flu shot. I love the stamps in this month's kit. They are perfect for those 'real life' events. I used the 'keepin' it real' stamp here.
 
My next week had lots of photos, so I used  4 by 6 card and added a library pocket to it in order to add my journaling and dates. This week, I got my new phone and a new Filofax!


 
Isn't that October Afternoon phone brad adorable. I thought it went perfectly for the picture of my iPhone in the bag of rice.
 
 
The best part of this week was my 30th High School reunion. I had so many pics from that. I made some photo collages. I stitched some vellum to make  pocket to hold them. Then, I tucked the pocket and a tag (from the printables this month) behind a photo overlay. I love how you can see through it. I embellished the top of the overlay.
 
Be sure to check out this month's kits. They are perfect for starting off the year on a bright and fun note. The Themed Add on is great for New Year's photos, too. You can see how some of the girls have used it for PL and layouts at the GB blog.
