#Challenge52Kits Block Party - January 2013

I shared this on my Instagram, but back in January 2013, I was into my 1st trimester with my daughter and so tired and nauseous, which is why I think I never liked this kit… it is one of my least favorites of all time!

ABOUT BLOCK PARTY | I don't know if it was also the colors, but it was a mix of odd colors that didn't pair all that well together - red, orange, yellow, lime green, teal, and a mucky gray… just blah!

A LAYOUT | I had trouble getting started on this layout, mainly because I generally start all my layouts first by picking out papers to go with my pictures. So I switched gears for this layout and started with the pictures and the envelope. Once I had a bit of a direction with how I wanted those to appear on the page, I just used the orange paper that was already cut to that size as a column and embellished on top, leaving out the difficult decision of having to incorporate more random patterned and colored paper!

NEXT UP | Front Row from February 2013 - a kit that I remember as having lots of yellows, greens, and blues, so my goal this week was to wrap it up by trying to work in some variety of colors there.
