True XOXO Girls January Challenge: 1

As January is the first month of the year, isn't it fitting that our challenge at True XOXO Girls this month is "one?"  Yes.  Just ONE.  What does that mean, you are probably asking?  Anything you want!  One paper...the number 1 or the word "one" somewhere in your title...a one word long as you tell us why your layout represents the word "one,"  you're in for a chance to win a shot at a GDT spot!

I was going to do a one manufacturer layout with one picture, but kind of blew it and decided just to do ONE of certain things.

ONE piece of Crate Paper Farmhouse patterned paper, ONE kraft cardstock, ONE color SC Mister Huey in Clay, ONE color of Stickles (Cotton Candy), ONE alpha in the same color as the Stickles (MM Dilly Dally), ONE CP Farmhouse chipboard element, ONE CP Farmhouse trim, ONE CP Farmhouse border, ONE CP Farmhouse sticker, ONE CP Farmhouse journal box die cut, ONE color Spectrum Noir marker used for journaling, and ONE picture of two cute kids :)

It's hard to see the mist, but it's there behind the title :)  I also distressed the edges of the patterned paper with my Heidi Swapp edge distresser.

I gathered the ruffles here for added interest.  Love this trim so much, and so sad that it's all gone :(

So there it is!  Head on over to the XOXO blog to see how our other team members took the "one" challenge, and link up your own creation today.

ruffles are a brave addition - but the WORKED! I love that color, too. :) Well done!
