All the products in this months box were so bright and cheerful looking. I did a rainbow party for Levi this year and thought they would be the perfect pictures to scrapbook with all that bright paper! The divided page protectors worked wonderfully with what I had in mind for this layout.

For today's project I created an embellished album. We received this beautiful 12x12 Crumb Cake Linen Ring Album in our box of goodies. We also got all 10 spools of 1/4 Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon! When I saw those 2 items, I immediately knew what I was going to do. This was the first project that I made as soon as I opened my box!! I love it. I am going to use this album for our family scrapbook pages for 2013.
The "B" monogram is from the Morning Post Alphabet set. I am really loving this alphabet set, it's the perfect size!

This months Artisan Design Team box was fantastic! I loved everything it in. I am always thrilled with what arrives each month, but I think this months box was my favorite so far!!
My first project is a card using the Polka Dot Parade and Natural Composition paper (both were part of this months box). I love pinwheels, they are so cute! The little pinwheels were super easy to make too. I made this card neutral, so it could be given to a boy or girl.
