JUGS challenge #13 and a sneak peak!!

Hi Everyone!!! It feels so good to get scrappy again. And it was awesome to work with non-Christmas colors! Don't get me wrong, I love Christmas. But when it's over, it's over. For challenge #13 over at Just Us Girls challenge blog, I used the January Color Me Daisy Kit...it's a beauty! Lots of great springy, fun colors to work with. It will get out of your winter doldrums, for sure!!

The challenge was to use a template. I loooove templates and I usually get mine from Papertrey Ink. Lauren Meader recently started her own company and is now selling templates through her company, My Time Made Easy. I downloaded her free template called Cutesy Cover and it was pretty easy to put together!


It reminds me of a playing card box! The top opens us to reveal...well, whatever you want to put in!


Everything is from the CMD January kit, except the polka dotted ribbon. I just love the little woolies that come in the kit!


That's it for me today! I have lots more to share from the CMD January kit, so come back tomorrow!

Happy New Year everyone! Thanks for stopping by!!
