Clique Kits September Blog Share

Hello and welcome to my blog!  Its time for the September Pep Rally with the gorgeous Moon Child kit.  This is my last DT duty with Clique Kits, and I want to say I've loved my term and have had so much fun creating with their amazing kits!  I'll miss the leadership team and the other girls on the DT.

Here is a look at the kit, featuring Pretty Little Studio, Kaisercraft, Kesi Art, Fancy Pants, Dear Lizzy and my favourite exclusive paper designed by Nicole.

We had a challenge theme this month to design a project about someone we "Love to the Moon & Back".  At first I was going to scrap my husband, but I didn't have a recent suitable photo, and to make matters more difficult my printer is currently broken.  So I scrapped our three kids holding the 12 week scan photo of our new baby arriving in November.  This page is an 8x8 layout for my 2016 Grateful Album (which I'm very behind on due to pregnancy related illness).

I also made this layout about my adventures in adult ballet lessons.  The fussy cut flower is from the packaging of the Pretty Little Studio tiny words,  and I was delighted to discover it when the word sheet came off.  I really wanted to focus on the exclusive "Dream" cut file.

I also made a mini album about my son's trip to Hobbiton (The Hobbit was filmed in the North Island of New Zealand), but due to having the flu and hyperemesis I wasn't able to finish it in time.  My plan is to finish it and share it on my blog and YouTube channel as soon as I'm done.

Here is the line up for the blog share.
