Trendy Twine January Challenge - Show us your mittens!

Happy January!
This month Trendy Twine is featuring a new color ...  Watermelon Taffy.

Watermelon Taffy is a new pink twisted with lime green that was introduced
in the Halloween line.  This month Trendy Twine also has a  Watermelon Taffy Mini Pack 
available that has coordinating colors.

The Trendy Twine  challenge for this month is:
 Show Us Your Mittens

Your project (of any form) must include:
Color pink
Trendy Twine

I hope that you will consider joining us for this month's challenge!  NO EXCUSES .. there is plenty of time to link your projects up.  Just head HERE when you are done to post/link your projects.

Now, here is the project that I've created for the challenge.

Now .. I have to admit that pink is NOT my thing.  Probably because I have two boys and I simply can not ever see them lovin' the color pink :)  That being said .. I really fell in love with the Watermelon Taffy twine.  It's so bright and cheerful... makes you smile!

I've created a one page layout that will hold one picture in the circle mat in the center of the page.

This was one of those ideas that evolved over time for me.  My initial thought when I read the requirements for the challenge was along the lines of "The three little kittens that lost their mittens".  This theme started out as a tag... then turned into an ornament .. which then ended up on a one page layout ... go figure.  I really do like the brightness to this and hope that you do too!

 Here is the full layout
