I was THRILLED to have been voted the "Queen of the Crop" during the fall crop at Cocoa Daisy in November!!!!!! I got to work with the wonderful January kit, which I got early in December, but couldn't post until the reveal night, which was Dec. 28th. But as mentioned, I have been sick and BUSY, so here it is finally!
This month's kit is called "Domestic Bliss". Sometimes I think those two words make an oxymoron, but other days it's OK! :)
Months ago I remember seeing a layout by Tessa Buys titled "SAHM", and I was just so inspired by it, but never followed through with the idea until now. (NOTE: I don't have my normal photography and editing equipment with me, or my laptop, so these are the best photos I have!)
I used bits of paper from almost every piece in the kit for this page!!! My favorite thing about this page is my journaling! :) I just wrote about some of the day to day things I encounter being a SAHM.
This next page, though, I think is my favorite.
The kit comes with a Hambly transparency with a chicken wire pattern. I cut it up to make it look like I stamped the pattern on the paper.
I know for some people the steps in your house might be used for "Time Out", but our step has become a meeting place where we plan our day.
I had wanted to add some stitching to this page, but I wasn't home when I did it, so I will have to add some when I get back.
I used the pennant stickers from the Lily Bee stickers to make these flowers!
Lastly, I did a real simple project based on my "One Little Word" for 2011. My word for this year is STRIVE. I wanted to remind myself of this word daily, so I made some little cards to place around the house to remind me. I am gonna put one on my car visor, in some coat pockets, on the mirrors in the bathroom, and on my computer and fridge!
You should really go check out the Cocoa Daisy kits and add-ons...they are amazing!!
I have some more reveals coming up including my Crop Addict January Projects and Scrapbook Circle!! PLUS more S.E.I.http://seilifestyle.blogspot.com/ pages for January!
