12x12 layouts and introducing supplies

wow! I’ve been all about layouts lately - normally its mini books all the way.

I’ve been so inspired by all the challenge blogs i'm trying (not to successfully either) to keep up with, movies I’ve watched lately.. Then I read on a design team member’s blog for let's scrap how she writes everything she uses in the post with the layout! How basic a thought! ya know? but I’ve never thought of doing it - what great reference.. so I’m giving it a shot starting with this post. Here goes.
I’ve kept the layouts simple, clean and its been fun getting so much done!

the latest color palette from the color room was very difficult for me (unlike the last one!)

but i gave it a shot and created this..

which now that i'm looking at isn't so bad..
