January Peeks and Preview

January at Scrapmuse is all about black and white - fresh and clean, bright and new. Traci's challenge to us was to do one layout that was only b&w - and the others to add one color to each layout. It was surprisingly freeing to work in such a limited color palette - I put together some little sneaks to show you what colors I chose to work with:

Here is the kit preview:

And my b&w layout - This is an older photo of Em at Orange Beach last fall.

So, how has your new year started? I enjoyed going around to every one's blogs and reading about your thoughts for 2009. One trend I noticed is positive thinking and organization - both of those are on my list, organization especially. And I have been creating everyday - of course, it is only the 2nd! ;D

Best wishes to you all in the coming year!! Happy Creating!
