Clique Kits September Challenge

Hi everyone!  As I mentioned earlier this month, Clique Kits is hosting a September Challenge on their blog.  It's sponsored by Pink Fresh Studio.  All you have to do is link up any project of yours and you will be entered to win a $25 gift certificate to Pink Fresh Studio!  You can enter a card, a layout, a project life spread, anything.  So, I'm going to enter my project because I could use $25 to spend at Pink Fresh Studio.  They have some awesome Glitter Washi Tape, and tons of super cute products.  So, here's my layout.  I created it using the #CliqueKits #September Kit #StudyAbroad.

I used the Chalkboard Paint that came in my kit to make a journaling spot.  My handwriting is not at it's best with the chalk I had on hand, but hey it works.  That blue glitter Washi and the wood vaneers are from Pink Fresh Studio.  Aren't they cute?  Of course, I had to cut out some little red hearts to complete the layout.  
And a little closeup.  I love the little cardboard people.

Now for some housekeeping items:

*You can enter the challenge until September 30.  I hope you all decide to participate because it's so worth the gift certificate.
*I'm running a September Challenge in my Facebook Group, Scrappy Girls.  Check it out and join our group.  
*As a Clique Kits Design Team member, I get a discount code to share with all of you.  Visit the Clique Kits Store and enter MARIAH10 to get 10 percent off of you purchases.
*Clique Kits is offering limited edition kits for the upcoming holiday season.  Make sure you visit the store and sign up because they will sell out quickly.  
*If you want to subscribe to Clique Kits monthly subscription, I would do so now.  They are awesome kits.  Lots of other people think so too because they are sold out for September and October Kit purchases.  Make sure you sign up if you want a November Kit.
*Don't forget the Pep Rally on September 24.  I'll be participating.  I have a Project Life Spread and a layout to share, as well as some free cut files.

Whew.  That was a lot.  Hope you have a Happy Sunday!

Project Life Week 27

Good morning!  I'm going to share my Project Life Week 27 layout with you.  It's for the week of 4th of July.  We always celebrate JoJo's birthday on the 4th since his is on the 5th of July.  I'm sure he's going to be upset when he learns the fireworks are not just for his birthday.  Anyhow, here you go.  For this week, I used one of my Studio Calico Kits.    
I will stitch up the pocket with the little flowers after I add next weeks pictures.  

Left Side:  Doesn't my brother look so thrilled to be at the Light Parade?  I love the picture of JoJo leaping into the water on the top.

Right Side:  Maddie looks stunned.  I just kept it simple for the layout.

Close up.  Maddie's stunned head is a little creepy but there's nothing I can do about that.  Those little flowers will be stitched into the pocket when next week's layout is done.  I learned that lesson the hard way a few weeks back.  I had to coordinate with the paper I stitched in there as I couldn't unstitch the pocket.

So there is Week 27 for you!

I have tons of housekeeping to take care of so come back tomorrow to check it out.

Clique Kits October Kit

Hey there.  It's been a little crazy around here.  I did want to show you a little peek at the October Clique Kits "Masquerade Ball" Kit.  I'll try to catch up on all of my sneaks for next week's Blog Hop, Project Life Layouts and such this weekend.  So here you go.  I can't wait to get started with projects and show the full reveal later this next week.

Happy Friday!

Project Life Week 26

Finally, I'm posting Week 26.  This was the week of my friend Jeff's memorial.  Everyone came from all over the country to celebrate his life.  Over 500 people attended the memorial.

I couldn't find the photos of this layout on my computer, and I was incredibly busy with a wedding I had to help photograph.  Inadvertently, I found the photos on a flash drive and didn't have to retake them.  I was pleased with that.  So here you go.  I used the June Clique Kits Kit for this week.

Entire layout:  I loved the handwriting stickers from the kit.
Below is the left side.

Right Side Below:  We actually had an earthquake in TorC.  

So there you have it!  Enjoy your Sunday.

Hunting Pictures

Here are just a few pictures of our hunting trip.  Unfortunately, we didn't get an elk.  Unless you're an elk...Then, it's fortunate.  Really, I'm just happy to spend time with the boys.  I am also glad to help them learn to appreciate our world.

Wild Thing (12x12 Layout and a Free Cut File)

Hello there everyone!  I hope you've had a fabulous week.  Today, I wanted to share with you a 12x12 layout I made.  When I saw the background paper, it instantly reminded me of the book, Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak.  It is one of my favorite childhood books of all time.  Strangely, my children don't actually like it that much.  To each his own, I guess.  Anyhow, here is the layout.
That is my "Wild Thing" JoJo.  He went through a stage of being a werewolf, and that was him making his werewolf sound when I snapped the photo.  I just changed the quote from the mom not Max saying "Be Still"  I included the anchor as a little symbol from the book as Max sails off on his private boat.  To add some definition to the clouds, I rubbed some Distress Ink on them.  I also popped a few of them up of the page with paper rolled into a ball and stuck down with adhesive. At the time, I didn't think I had any foam stickers...I learned that I, in fact did, when last weekend we had a small hazmat situation on our hands in the laundry room.  I digress.  That's a story for another day.  Let's just say, there is nothing Mod Podge can't do.  I also wanted to share the .PNG files and the cut files with you for "Wild Thing"  They actually say Wild Things, but I cut the "S" off.  If you choose to use them, link them back to my blog.  I would love to see what you do with them.  Here is the .PNG.  Here is the Silhouette Cut File.

If you have any issues, let me know.  I've changed my downloads from Google Drive to Dropbox!
