The January 2013 Kit at BOAF is Just Lovely!

The January Kit at Birds of a Feather is just absolutely LOVELY! There are so many gorgeous papers and plenty of sparkle and fun! The colors are wondeful and the embellishments that Amy chose are just perfect- from ribbons to brads to the fun little bottles of acrylic paint! This is a perfect blend of colors and I adore the set of alpha stickers that she chose! It's safe to say that I just love it all!

Speaking of lovely.... let's talk about sweet little Lyida! She is truly the definition of cute and as sweet as can be. She's the daughter of two friends that I work with and she's just perfect! I took some photos of her as she was snuggling and smiling with her mom on a beautiful day at the lake last summer.

I used the red acrylic paint from the kit extras to make the little dots that go around the layout. The bottle is so easy to control and the paint dries really fast! The word "lovely" is from the Pink Paislee Photograms in the main kit and the leaves for the flower are cut from the Photograms packaging.

Here's a closeup so you can see a few more details!

Today is my Great Aunt Muriels' 80th birthday. So, this card was created for her. She is a wonderful, strong lady who has been a smiley part of my life for as long as I can remember. Happy Birthday, Aunt Muriel!

I hope you've enjoyed my projects today and that you are loving the January Kit as much as I am! If you'd like to get your hands on this kit, check it out HERE!

And, don't forget to check out the challenges on our forum. Amy has posted some great challenges this month to inspire you!

By the way- I just realized that I forgot to post the winner of my $10 BOAF GC here on my blog!  It was on the BOAF Forum, though... Congratulations to Ann Jobes!
