Selfie - Clique Kits blog share

Hello blogging friends. It's time for the Clique Kits March blog share! You might want to start at the Clique blog and work your way through. There is an awesome prize for one lucky commenter.

This is my third layout with the Hell Yeah Clique kit. I really wanted to use the Clique exclusive Blah Blah Blah paper (which by the way is available for anyone to purchase in the Clique Store. Coupon code Marcia10 will save you 10% too). I paired it with this hilarious selfie that I found on my iPad last Christmas. It's rare that I can get all 3 of my kids in a photo, especially now with two of my kids working nights and weekends. They will probably never leave me another selfie after seeing I made this one into a layout, lol. I really needed to scrap something light. The last few months have been brutal. I lost a dear friend and coworker to brain cancer March 9th. It has been a struggle every day to make myself go to work when I have constant reminders of her there and people asking me how she was doing. I was the one to clean out her desk. I had to wait and do it one evening so when I cried the cleaning crew were the only ones there. Friday was her "ceremony of life" service... so much better than saying funeral. I did a eulogy reading for the ceremony at the bequest of her family. It was one of the hardest things I have ever done. I so did not want cry in front of all those people. I managed to hold it together almost until the end. I attended another funeral visitation on Sunday night for a favorite Uncle of mine. I am so emotionally drained. I think a weekend of scrap therapy is needed very soon.

Sorry for getting off tangent... I used some fun Word Bubbles and Hashtags from the JustNick Store to complete my layout. Here it is ...


Did you notice the "No Filter" word phrase under the photo? Perfect right!  I added some watercolor behind the hashtags... things were looking too white for my liking. I like the splash of color even though it is subtle.


This flair is from a previous Clique Kit, but I thought the colors were a perfect match for the Goldie papers.


I have a quick card to share as well from the Spring Clique Kits Card Kit. This kit is so gorgeous and features the My Minds Eye On Trend 2 papers and embellishments. I used another JustNick cut file on this one too for the geometric overlay.


I will be sharing more cards in next few days, so stop on back. The Spring Card kit is available in the Clique Store. Use coupon code Marcia10 and save 10%.

Ok ... here is the line-up
