counting

cocoa daisy's february kit, by the numbers, went on sale last week while i was at CHA. i ran out of time before i left to do a blog post, but i figured better late than never, right?!?! i loved all the my mind's eye in this kit, there was a bunch of other manufacturers, but i ended up using mostly the MME. unusual for me to stick with one manufacturer, but when it's all kraft based? how could i do anything but? 

this first layout is my least favorite, but i love the concept behind the page. i just couldn't get it to work design-wise. it's the conversation kelly and i have every night before we go to sleep. it makes me smile.

uses by the numbersbarcode, and the embellishment pack

and this one was my favorite, i'm all about the strong banner strips lately. another conversation kelly and i often have. he really is a good man, i stand by that even when he is goofy. i'm beyond blessed to have him as my sweetie.
uses  by the numbers, and dewey decimal 
and finally, it was super fun putting this together. the idea hit about 4:30 a.m. after i'd gotten up for a potty break. i couldn't go back to sleep so i got up and started putting things in place. i didn't know what the top ten would actually be, but then i remembered the WCS gallery for february was about music. serendipity. and the word "tunes" fit perfectly. love how it turned out, a happy jumble of things. and i took an early nap that day, just in case you're wondering mom :).
