This week we took a slightly different approach with kit smitten - and actually used three different mini kits from this months Pea Soup Collection. There is a beautiful mini by Dianne Rigdon Design, a paper pack by ChrissyW Digital, and an element pack also by ChrissyW Digital. It was fun to work with these coordinating kits and pick from any knowing they were made to coordinate (so we didn't have to think too hard)

The first page is by Tara McKernin - busy chica that she is. In case you missed it, she also wrote an amazing December Daily blog post yesterday, made a layout for today, and all of this while finishing up finals. Oh and ... It's her birthday today too! Whew.
Team Member Jocelyn Olsen also used these kits to make a really cool hybrid card. If you are interested in hybrid she is one of several amazing designers we have on our team. #alwaysamazedbyhybrid
and this one is by me - Janelle
I'm going to tell you a little secret about this page (and lots of my pages for that matter) - when I am feeling uninspired I pull out an old layout that was saved with all the layers and use it as a layered template. Usually it gives me a kick start and I end up changing it so much that it is barely recognizable as having started out as the other page - but sometimes I just go with it and let them be similar (heck they won't be next to each other in my scrapbooks). If you are interested in seeing the layout I switched up, it is ... right here. An oldie but a goodie.
And then I also used this week's kits for the first page of my December Daily album - I went with 6x6 size. I'm trying to keep this project SIMPLE, so that I might actually finish. Keep your fingers crossed for me, because this particular project type and I have had a rocky relationship in the past. :S
