I attempted PL last year and it did not go so well. This year I downsized to a smaller, 8.5x11 album, in hopes that it will be a little easier to maintain. Of course, my first challenge was to create a cover page! I love all embellishment pages and this gold, pink and black combo was calling my name. The "our story begins here" rub-on from January's kit was the perfect starting point for my page. The die cuts are from Up in the Cloud and the gold stripe inserts are actually cut out from the kit packaging!
Second up is a layout! I used several rub-ons from both the kit and collection here on the background, woven tags and my photo. I love touches of gold, and the flair from the January kit are just gorgeous!
