Happy New Year! - Clique Kits

Hello blogging friends.... yes this is my second post today! Yup ... trying to catch-up on my blogging after an exhausting work week and lack of sun for photographing my layouts. At least there is no sun when I am home. I will be so glad when the days get a little longer.

I got to work with a mini kit this month for Clique Kits, some My Minds Eye Wild Berry Jubilee 6x6 papers and lots of embellishments. Did you know Clique Kits has a on-line store in addition to those fabulous monthly kits! and you can use Coupon Code Marcia10 and save 10%.

Here is what I created with my mini kit...

I was inspired by a layout by Missy Whidden where she created a confetti 12x12 layout with the Wild Berry Jubilee paper. I decided to do something similar but on a smaller scale, since I only had the 6x6 papers. The enamel shapes on top add to the confetti look, don't you think. 

This photo is from several years ago. It was the one and only time we went to a hotel for a New Year's Party with friends. Usually one or the other of us is stuck working and the other one would be entertaining the kids. Or we would get together with friends for a house party. House parties are always funner. Some Love My Tapes washi tape helps to anchor my photo and creates a border at the top and bottom of my layout.

I colored in the mustache on the die cut to make it stand out more. I also altered the wood geo tag journal spot with some Heidi Swapp Tinsel color wash. That silver color looks lots more festive than the wood.

The February Clique Kit was just revealed!  SQUEAL!!!
