Clique Kits May Blog Share

Welcome to the May Pep Rally!  If you  have arrived from Jody's blog then you are in the right place.  If you are just stopping for a visit please head on over to the Clique Kits blog and start the Pep Rally from the beginning.  This month we are featuring projects using the May 2014 Clique Kit Field Trip.  This kit features the line As You Wish by Fancy Pants Designs!

I wanted to play along with the sketch challenge from Fancy Pants Designs that is featured in their new newsletter!  In case you missed it our very own Gia Lau is the featured designer for their May newsletter so be sure to check it out HERE!  Here is a look at my layout using the sketch provided in the Fancy Pants newsletter.

For my next project I put together a mini album filled with photos of our youngest baby Eli James and his many adventures.  The cover photo was just taken yesterday as we were leaving the doctors office.  He is getting so big he likes to walk on his own now and carry his own bag like a big boy!  I had to photograph this time and document it.  Time goes by way to fast and I want to remember every bit of it!  If you have been to my blog before you know how much I love to make minis!  I used the new We R Memory Keepers Evolution machine to die cut some of the papers from the kit for the pages of my album.  The machine came with some great dies that were perfect to create my pages.  Next all I needed to do was add some layers, my photos and embellish my pages!

Thanks so much for spending some time with me today!  You next stop is Lacey and you are going to love what she has to share with you!  Remember to leave comments along the way, follow the Clique Kits blog and Facebook for your chance to win the Wish You Were Here stamp set by Lawn Fawn and a roll of green chevron washi tape!
