Surprise Donuts - Februrary Classic Kit: Happy Together

Hello everyone!  I'm so excited to share my first layout using the Noel Mignon monthly kits.  This month's kit is called Happy Together and I received the awesome classic kit.  When I initially went through the supplies, the one thing that stood out to me was the donuts!

And I have some donut pictures!  I loved the large donut sticker on the Pebbles sticker sheet and wanted to incorporate it creatively.  I decided to make that part of my title by substituting it for the "O" in my title.

I highlighted it by also adding one of the sparkly pink bows on it.  I loved the Illustrated Faith paper that already had some pattern on the corners so I decided to keep the layering simple by just adding one long strip of Crate Paper chevron patterned paper and leaving it at that.  The bag from our local donut shop was just a perfect addition and I used it like a second photo and used it to hold my journaling and a few embellishments.

I also wanted to add a couple pops of yellow by using another circular element with the "Hello" die cut and the Heidi Swapp "This" arrow pointing to the donuts in the picture.  I also added one smaller pop of yellow in the upper corner to create that visual triangle.

I used one of the Jillibean Soup wood veneer words and dressed it up with the Tim Holtz Distress Crayon (in Picked Raspberry) to help it stand out.  I added it right on top of the donut on the paper bag.  I love the little pop of darker pink it adds.

For the journaling, I added this "Today" tag to the paper bag and journaled about how my husband occasionally will get up early in the morning on his days off and surprise us with a box of donuts for breakfast.  It's always such a special treat!

Thanks so much for joining me today, I hope you like the layout I made!  For more on the kits and to get one of your own, please check out the site:

Have a great week and I'll see you again next Friday with another layout!
