Just For Fun with Clique Kits!

Happy Monday to you!

It's been a fun weekend for the most part with all kinds of National Scrapbooking excitement and sharing going on everywhere. I was fortunate to get a day away to enjoy myself on Saturday which was such a wonderful treat!

I worked on a few projects for my June commitments, so I can't share any of those projects yet.

Today I ended up at home with a sick child, so while he was napping, I was able to create a few projects to play along with the Clique Kits National Scrapbooking Day Online Crop.

The first challenge I chose was a cards with layers challenge.  I used the Clique Kits National Scrapbooking Day Kit that I had ordered for this. The die cut elements and the gold accents are really fresh and fun.

The next challenge that I chose was a stitching one hosted by Marcia.  

I was working on these projects while my son was resting so I decided for this page that I would just do a few hand stitches. Notice the page corner at the top is just part of a leftover embellishment from my card.

This is a really super clean and simple design for me, but I decided I wanted to just sit at the table with the kit in hand and my photo and just put it together. I gave myself 45 minutes. 

One of the other challenges that inspired my page was to scrap in a grid style which I don't typically do, but that's the point of challenges, get you out of your comfort zone and try things.  : )

Thanks so much for stopping on over!  Have a super scrappity day!
