January 2010 Color Challenge Kit

I've gotta tell ya'll, for somebody that is a pink freak, this month's color challenge was for some reason a real challenge for me. I couldn't begin to tell ya'll how much stuff I worked for hours on and then trashed. Finally, this morning I decided see what I could come up with, since it was 16* outside and there was nothing much else to do. Now I know that to a lot of ya'll these kind of temps are the norm, but for me, a dyed in the wool beach bunny, anything below 60* is pushing it. I'm ready to pack up and move to Costa Rica, lol. Our high yesterday was 26*, at 7:00 AM it was so flippin' cold that the telephones froze. Yes, you read that right, the PHONES froze. Excuse me...just where is this global warming happening???? To explain...
The Comdial system is installed out in the warehouse behind my office. About 7:30 I realized it had been awfully quiet, usually the phones are ringing off the wall nonstop. I went and reset the system, but NADA. I grabbed my cell and was digging for the phone guy's number when it occured to me that electronics are supposed to be kept in a semi-warm atmosphere. I took my under desk heater out and plugged it in, and pointed it at the phone console. Less than 60 seconds later the danged phone was ringing like crazy. So...I sacrificed warm legs for six ringing phone lines that drive me bonkers. What is this world COMING TO? Somebody just tell me what I've done to deserve this, and I swear I'll never do it again.
Anyway, I digress...if you have read this far you deserve a gifty! Without further ado, I give ya'll my take on Kim's swatch for January 2010. I have included a clustered 'page starter', you can pretty much drag it onto your paper, add a photo, title and journaling and have yourself a LO! It is preshadowed, remember that I do my shadows at 45*, so if you use it and want to add anything else to your page change the direction of any shadows you apply to 45*.

Thanks so much for the lovely kit! :)

I was glad it was warmer here this weekend --- 10* above instead of 10* below. I could try to send some of our warm Minnesota weather your way, but I think you wouldn't like it! ;)

Oh you POOR THING!!! When you haven't been exposed to those kinds of temperature, your blood gets thinner and you just can't keep yourself warm!!! I'm sitting here watching the snow lazily drift by my window - quite happy that I am inside and wearing several layers of clothing! We had about 4 inches last night but now it just kinda looks like a snow-globe - very pretty!

Thanks for the great kit and STAY WARM!!!!
