100 Days of School papers

Happy February 1st! It's really hard to believe that one whole month of the year is gone already.

Just a quick note today, I'm still fighting a cold, was out late last night, and have about 800 things to do--like make jambalaya--before I head to the neighbor's house for a Super Bowl party later this afternoon. I don't really care who wins, although I did take a class with Neil Rackers (kicker for the Arizona Cardinals) when I attended the University of Illinois and Larry Fitzgerald Jr. is from Minneapolis.

This week's kit is called "100 Days of School" and was inspired by CT member Ginger's 100th day of school (which will be Tuesday). I initially really struggled with this kit because I had an entirely different color scheme--bright primary colors. Then I went to ColourLovers and found this palette. I was so inspired that the entire kit came together in just a few short hours--woo-hoo! I hope you'll like it as much as I do. And, as always, I'd love to see whatever layouts you create with it--put them in the slideshow on the bottom or send me a link (my e-mail address is on the left).

I continue to be amazed and inspired by the great layouts my CT puts together each week. They always come up with great stuff and get me to look at the papers and elements in entirely new ways.

I'll have more layouts (and my own) from CT members to share with you as the week progresses.

Here is a preview of the entire kit; be sure to check back each day to get another portion of it.

And here is today's portion of the kit, the papers (5 solid, 6 patterned):

I'll be back tomorrow with the first set of elements. Enjoy the rest of your day!

Fun Font Friday


How did it get to be the end of March already? It seems like just yesterday we were ringing in the new year and now we're almost to April. (Speaking of April, if you missed the sneak peek of the new products I'm releasing April 1 you can find them here.)

This week's fun font is Hoedown. It's a great font for western-themed invites, pages, posters and more. Maybe even on circus or amusement park pages?

Creative Team member Ginger created a fun piece of wordart for you using Hoedown. (She creates great wordart and shares it--along with some great stories and photos of her life--on her blog.)You can download the wordart she created here.

You may download the font here.
