Clique Kits May Pep Rally

Hi there and welcome!  I am joining some of the DT and members of Clique Kits to share some projects that we have created using the May kit  "Northern Lights". It's always fun to see all the different projects created from the same kit.
The beautiful Kit features Fancy Pants Atwell collection and Basic Grey's Urban Luxe collection.

I had a lot of fun creating my layout. I used a BG paper as my background and the strips at the top and bottom are also BG. The green photo mat is Fancy Pants paper.

I used a cut file from Just Nick to anchor my photo and embellishments. The cut file was backed with BG paper and I added messy stitching for some added texture.

The whole design of my layout was based on a sketch from Creative Scrappers.. I'm so glad they are back!!

Here are a couple of closeups.

Here is the list of everyone on the blog share today. Come hop along and check out all the fabulous projects!! Don't forget to comment along the way for your chance in winning a May kit of your very own!

I am also entering my layout in the Take 5 Challenge at Paper Issues.

Sparkle and Shine Challenge #29

Morning everyone!!

Last weekend I was at my home away from home....Memories Manor in Michigan so I had some extra time to create a layout for the latest challenge at Sparkle and Shine Challenge..

For this challenge we are sponsored by the amazing Create A Smile Stamps! The winner of our challenge will receive a $25 gift card to the online store and will be asked to be our Guest Designer for next month.  Very cool...right?

Here is our photo inspiration for today.

I was inspired by the beautiful flowers so made sure that flowers made an appearance onto my layout. Not a problem at! 
The Happy Place collection by Fancy Pants was perfect for this challenge.

For Christmas my youngest son bought my Mom a huge bag of Smarties and I captured this photo of her hanging onto them so nobody else could grab them!! Too funny!
