No Training Wheels: My Creative Scrapbook

Good morning everyone and happy new year. I hope you had a great holiday. School started back for us this week and we are still trying to get into the swing of things!

We've enjoyed some lovely, warm, sunny weather of late. A real treat for winter and perfect for playing outside. Cory got a new bicycle for Christmas and took it out for a spin. My dad had taught him how to ride without training wheels this summer on his small first bike. It was time for an upgrade. Santa knows!

I made this layout with the January kit from My Creative Scrapbook. It featured Happy Day from Pebbles Inc. 

I didn't have a specific spot for my journaling, so I just ran a card from the kit through my printer and added the words "new bicycle" and the date. I needed a little something else to fill the space in my grid, so I added two left-facing blue banners to break up the blocks. 

At the top of the layout, I added a few right facing banners to balance things out.

Here's another look at the full layout: 

I'm quite partial to grid layouts. They appeal to my natural linear style.

Here's a look at the January kit I used: 

My Creative Scrapbook puts together several kits each month. They are all really cute. You can see them here.

Thank you for stopping by. I'll be back tomorrow with posts from my December Daily. Yup, still catching up!
