Clique Kits October Blog Hop

Can you believe it's almost November!?! Another Pep Rally closer to Christmas! eeekkk... Octobers 'Funfetti' was another super FUN kit!! Loving all the different size cards, and as always, the embellishments were awesome! There was a sheet of cut outs that I really enjoyed using too! Have fun hopping along! Also check out Clique Kits 'Anything Goes' Challenge for the month- you'll find one of these added in there!

There is not a lot to this page as the paper itself was just gorgeous!!

LOVE making pages with diferent size cards and photos! And of course, leaving 'clear' pockets as well!I will eventually fuse these in to individual pockets, but for now they are stuck onto 6x6 pieces of page protector to fit in the 6x6 pockets.

This is the backside to the above page!

Scrap The Girls October Challenge

I was feeling a little 'blocked' with my creativity today...I wasn't sure where to I had a look through some blogs I follow and came across this simply STUNNING moodboard by Scrap The Girls. I haven't seen their blog before, but I will follow it closely now as their Design Team put up some fantastic pages...and they had me completely inspired today! Here's the page I put together for their October Challenge :-)

Jot's October Mood Board

Eeeekkkk I think this is the first page I haven't used a pink or gold embellishment on in a long time!!! And only a speckle of pink in the photos!! A very rare sight in our family albums ;-) 100% inspired by Jot's gorgeous October Mood Board! Thank you Jot!!

Our baby turned 1!!

This past year has just flown by...can't believe I now have a 2 year old and a big 1 year old!!! I had a lot of fun preparing for the birthday girls little party..I decided to make a ribbon garland to put as a background behind the table..except I somehow ended up using crepe paper. It look fantastic, but it took FOREVER to make as I had to be soooo delicate knotting it so it wouldn't rip! I think next time I will find ribbon ;-) I made some confetti balloons and used pink and gold curling ribbon to hand off the balloons. All time consuming, but would do it all over again. Now that its all done and dusted though, time to get back into some scrapping! Keep your eyes peeled for the upcoming Clique Kits Blog Hop, and the opening week of Sketches in Thyme Project Life Style!
