I love the beginning of a new month. And, this time around we have a new YEAR to boot. Love it! At Scrapbooking from the Inside Out we are beginning 2012 with a most wonderful way to dig deep. What makes YOU tick. What characteristics, traits, quirks, dynamics, etc. set you apart? On the flip side of that, do you feel like you blend in with the crowd? Are you quite comfy not being noticed? Or perhaps you wish to be set apart but feel like you are stuck in a rut.

Well this month it's time to embrace who you truly are and record it. This month's kit is packed full of the perfect amount of product symbolism too. We have the All About Me collection from Webster's Pages, Indie Bloom from Basic Grey and Random from Crate along with some fantastic big bling, sparkly POW paper from A.C. and Glimmer Glam by Tattered Angels. 

Sparkle! Shine! It's all about YOU whether you like it or not... so just embrace it, K? ;)

When I found out the month's topic at SFTIO, I was so excited to finally have this photo scrapped. I was waiting for the perfect emotion or theme for it and I knew it would have to be one all about my silly side. I'm a ham whenever a camera comes out. I like to make funny faces and smile and be cheesy. I'm comfortable in front of the camera, although, it hasn't always been that way. 

Pretty elements from the Indie Bloom collection by Basic Grey. So many fun colors and patterns to play with as you express yourself.

Sparkle! Love me some bling you know. I'll be sharing on the SFTIO forum some fun ideas on how to use this paper on projects soon.  Come join us now!

More sparkle! (The black alpha is not from the kit.)

The stickers from Cosmo Cricket were so perfect for Individuality! The great thing with these is that you can totally use them for your journaling or, as I did, to supplement your journaling. 

What makes YOU, you??? Come share with us at SFTIO and heck... grab yourself a kit too. They go fast! :)


P.S. Our new design team debut's this month with their GORGEOUS layouts. This is going to be a fantastic term. I just know it!
