Trish's Reveal....

Well, all I wanted for Christmas was my computer and internet back and my darling husband home for a visit.... guess what? I got both! I am hanging my head in shame because I was supposed to post yesterday (so sorry) but my extended internet access had me out of the loop!

January's kit is awesome! It is full of grungy papers and hard metal embellishments! I have scrapped so much pink and bright stuff lately that this was a challenge for me! Luckily, I have a grungy boy in the house from which to draw my inspiration!
For my first page, being stuck in a rut, I was unable to get away from creating girly pages, so I used the MM journaling block pages (the gingham stars) to create a background paper and then crinkled up the stripe paper. The whole thing is sewn down to make a pocket which holds the journaling - some observations about my 9 year old daughter (pictured here at about 9 months).

I was inspired by the stars on the Rusty Pickle paper and remembered I had some pictures of Brody taken at school in a western theme (weird, I know, but they invited some photographer to come with a pony...) So, I created "The Reluctant Cowboy"
Finally, I found those great "boy" themed Rusty Pickle stickers (this kit has so much I had almost forgotten them!) and as I read the word confetti strips I realized that they all described my little trouble maker.. so I created "Beware of the Boy" using the stickers and a piece of the Rusty Pickle paper, simple, yet makes an impact!
I still have 2 pages in progress on my desk using January's kit and probably enough leftover for some cards! (Did I mention this kit is packed?!)... Thanks for taking a look! Hope you are inspired enough to go grab a kit of your own!


  1. Great pages, Trish! I really like the dimension on your 2nd layout! Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Awesome work with the kit, girl! Sooo missed seeing your work around here! :)


Thanks for being SIMPLY OBSESSED!
