Al's Breakfast - Clique Kits

Hello blogging friends!  I’m very excited to be up on the Clique Kits blog sharing a layout I created with the fabulous October kit, Masquerade Ball!  I just love all the colors and patterns in the Second City paper collection by Basic Grey. I also love the digital Print and Cut files that were included in the kit. These are tangibles you can use over and over again even after your kit papers are gone. Here is my layout ...

 I thought I would focus on triangles in this layout about a favorite place we like to go to eat with my daughter when we visit her at college. It is just off the campus where she attends school in Minneapolis. Now because I hate my writing, I prefer to journal on my layouts using my computer. So I used one of the printables from the kit to create a journaling spot. I did this with Adobe Photoshop Elements. Here's how...

 Repeating shapes throughout gives my layout a cohesive feel. It pulls everything together. Here are some close-ups...

 I just love the flair and the PinkFresh Studios chevrons in this kit! The washi tape is the only thing on my layout that was not part of the kit. That came from Love My Tapes. If you shop the Clique Store, use my coupon code MARCIA10 and save 10%!

Thanks for stopping by. If you are ever in Minneapolis, be sure to check out Al's Breakfast. The pumpkin pancakes are amazing! You won't be disappointed. Bring cash, they do not take credit cards. Your order is actually tallied by hand! (Yes, this wait staff does math!) Since they are only open for breakfast, be sure to check the hours. The line starts to form outside at least an hour before they open :)
