Wildflower Blog Share

Welcome to the Wildflower Blog Share! If you have arrived from Jody's blog then you are in the right place! If you are just stopping by for a visit please head on over to the Clique Kits Blog and start the hop from the beginning! Trust me you do not want to miss it!! We are excited to highlight the fabulous paper line Wildflower by Carta Bella, designed by Kaitlin Sheaffer.   

Our blog share was inspired by the following quote:
May your life be like a wild flower...Growing freely in the beauty and joy of each day- Native American Proverb

Our challenge was to use something wild on our project! The Wildflower Collection of course lends itself very well to this challenge since it has so many trendy designs like florals, deer antlers, and outdoorsy Polaroids.  In keeping with Clique Kits style,  we added in some coordinating embellishments to make it our own, including some exclusive flair designed by graphic designer Lacey Igo Gasper.

I created two layouts for the blog share and I had so much fun creating with this collection.  For my first layout I used an Instagram photo of my "wild"self!  I am usually the one behind the camera so I have challenged myself last year to start being in the photos!  I used a few of the patterned papers to build up some layers behind my photo and added a few other pieces from my stash like the glassine bag!  I also used the exclusive flair created by Lacey and the wood piece is from Creative Embellishments

Next up is a layout of myself and my sweet little Gavin Isaac! He seems to make this wild and crazy face in every picture!! I just love him to pieces and can not get enough of his cuteness! I used another one of the exclusive flair created by Lacey and for my background I used this beautiful paper from the Wildflower Collection.

Next up is Lacey and she has some beautiful projects to share with you!! If you are crushing over her flair as much as we are then you will want to head on over to her shop HERE before they are gone!

We also have a fabulous prize for one randomly chosen winner who comments on all blogs and sharing on Facebook will count as an extra entry! We would also love for you to follow our blogs but it is not required for the prize drawing!

Thanks so much for stopping today and enjoy your day!
