Hope everyone is getting ready for the New Year! Hard to believe that 2011 is drawing to a close, it seems to go by faster every year.
I found this layout in the gallery & just love it.
Created by our own SharonBertolino using a kit called It's in the Air.
I love the colors together & the cluster is amazing!
Makes me want to go on a cruise even more.

Find this kit HERE!

I love showing off these great layouts because there are just times that the previews don't do a kit justice. It is with all your great layouts that really show off what is in the kit. Please remember to post your layouts in A+ Designs galleries so we can all see how you used her kits.

Oops! Did anyone else miss Wednesday? It seems my week is going by super fast and I thought about the blog several times yesterday, but.... well, it's Thursday now.
Here is a layout that stood out to me in A+ Designs gallery:

Maybe this one stands out because I have a new little one too (well 4 months - that's still new, right). I love her clusters and what an adorable photo.
