Welcome to my blog

... for the CMK blog hop!

Today is reveal day, where the CMK Feb. kit is being revealed, along with layouts that the DT created using the kit.

So, guess what I used on my layout?




These little chipboard critters from Sassafras Lass (which, of course, are in the kit.) I struggled with them for a bit, because, for me, I need to have a reason why things are on my layouts. I am probably too theme oriented that way, but hey, that's me. ;)

So, I wondered how I could use these critters on a page, without resorting to cute phrases like :"You're such a deer" or "Owl always love you" (I'm saving those for valentines LOL!) when Sage sparked the idea for a layout.

I love it when it all comes together!

Make sure you check out the CMK blog to see what the other members of the DT created.
