Grandma's House Where Cousins Become Best Friends - Clique Kit - Alegria

Hi there,

So excited I get to participate in another Clique Kit - 
Pep Rally using the Alegria Kit.

Here is my layout.

Love how this turned out,  these colors were 
so fun to play with.

Here are some close-ups:

I used the 20sixteen free monthly cut file.
And the super cute wood veneer light bulb.

I cut out some extra + from one of the papers from the kit and scattered them around the layout.

I love that hedgehog flair button.

I used a stencil and texture paste in on my background.

I used my Shimmerz Inklingz to color in the background
and to splatter the paint.

I used the cut-aparts and the Fancy Pants ephemera pack.

Kate is next:

Case File 188 - Nothing But Blue Skies

Hi There,

It's been a while since my last blog post.
Had a little hiccup with my health, but I am back on track!!
Going to make the most of every chance I get to create......
missed it like crazy.

So to get back into the swing of things, I am going to 
share with you my layout created for 

Now this week's challenge, I found to be a curly one.
I looked at those colors and thought to myself, 
were do I go from here?
But as soon as I looked through my stash for the color palette
it all became clear, and of course the Nifty Pixel sketch rocks!!

Here it is:

I took some beautiful photo's of my mums visit to 
Mackay for the Christmas holidays.
I seriously don't know what I would have done without her here.

My evidence was:  Clouds, Dangle a Charm and Ribbon.

Now sail boats don't appear in the sky, but they were on 
the water surrounded by puffy clouds, so they appear 
that way on my layout.

My Testimony: Was to journal a gathering.

Here is what the case file looked like:

Case No. 185 - Dreaming of Paris

Hi There Friends,

Seriously, who doesn't dream of Paris?
Well I do.
I love the history, the architecture, the art and the food.

I had the opportunity to scrapbook this love
Case File 185.

My favourite colors are featured in this case file.

Here are some close-ups:

This photo of the Eiffel Tower was a wallpaper, screen saver.
I thought it was perfect for the Case File.

I used a funky Artistcellar Stencil - 
by Tamara Laporte (Willowing).

Here is the Case File:

How amazing is that sketch from Page Drafts!!

My Evidence is:

* Architectural Accents - Eiffel Tower Wood Veneers 
& Stencil Background.
*Pom-Pom Trim - Black Pom-Pom Ribbon under photo.
*Sprinkle Something - I sprinkled glitter at the top of the layout.
*Asterisk/Starburst Shape - Asterisk in my journaling as dot points.

My Testimony is:

I wrote my story in the form of a wish list.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Case File 182 - I Can't Hear You!

Hi There Lovelies,

Today I will be sharing with you this layout I made
using the Case File 182 from

This is my niece Madelyn.  She is gorgeous.
I asked if I could take a photo of her and she put her hands over
her ears and said "I Can't Hear You!!"

I loved this challenge and these are colors that I would
not usually use on a layout.
That is the best thing about the CSI color palettes.
It really has you thinking outside the box.

Here are some close-ups:

I used a stencil and texture paste to make a large polka dot pattern.

My Evidence is:
Large Polka Dots
Book Pages
Scallop Border
Wet Medium
White Background

My Testimony is:
using the word sweet as inspiration for my journaling.

Here is what the challenge looks like:
