Clique Kits May Blog Share!

Hello and welcome to our May Clique Kits Blog Share, you may have come here from Maryam's gorgeous blog or arrived on your own!  I love our blog shares, and was sad to miss last month due to illness.  This month we're sharing projects we made with our May "Northern Lights" kit featuring Fancy Pants' "Attwell" and Basic Grey's "Urban Luxe" collections.


Here is another look at the lovely kit.


I made two layouts for this share, and amazingly both are about my son Sam (age 9).  The first one is about going to see the new Star Wars movie last December.  He was so excited, and even though this photo is in my December Daily, it needed page in Sam's album too!  I used a cut file from The Cut Shoppe, and the Happy Day frame was perfect for a title.    My design is lie a loose grid, once I got my photo and title down I just embellished around with pieces of ephemera until I was happy!


My second layout is about our holiday to Christchurch last July, and this photo was taken at the Orana Wildlife Park.  I just had to use that Fancy Pants corrugated paper as a full background, it was a case of hoard it or use it!  I love the way it plays off the wooden posts and sticks on the bridge.   I fussy cut some leaves out of one of the patterned papers, and really made a feature of the "charming" cut apart card.  I kept my embellishment very simple on this one.
