Hello Clique Kits fans! Erica here with you today to share a layout I created using the wonderful August add ons from the Clique Kits shop. Now the August kit is super fabulous but I know some of you are still on the waitlist so I wanted to share a layout I created with products you can get in the Clique Kits shop! Now this layout is documenting our sweet family member Izzy. She is our boxer and we have only had her about 2 months. Now let me fill you in on our sweet Izzy and how she became part of our family! Now I know a lot of you know Sandra aka Oh Snap Gonzo. Well she had posted on her Facebook that they were looking for a new home for their boxer. I immediately messaged her and asked why they had to find her a new home and let her know I would love to have her. Now I live in Illinois and Sandra lives in Tennessee so Ikinda knew this would never happen! I continued asking about Izzy and I just had this strong feeling about wanting to have her. I shared her photo with my husband and he also fell in love with her. Sandra and I messaged back and forth and finally Sandra says if you are serious and really want her lets meet half way! And that is exactly what we did! We each drove about 5 hours, stayed overnight in Mt. Vernon Illinois and met up for breakfast the next day and we met our sweet Izzy. At this time in my life I was still very sad about the passing of my dad. Honestly I believe he had a some doing in bringing Izzy into our lives. All my life he has always known my love for dogs and as I child I always had a dog thanks to my dad. I think he knew Izzy would help heal my heart and help take some of the sadness away. And she has definitely got my butt out of the bed and back into the swing of things! She can always tell just when I need her too and she is never to far from me. The photo I scrapped is our Izzy girl resting her head on my leg while I worked at my computer. Something she does everyday and I had to snap a photo to document it. She sure does fit right in with my kids and especially the two young boys who are always at moms side!
The papers I used are from the Fancy Pants Summer Sun 6×6 paper pad. I did add some ink with the packaging technique and also some spatters with my Heidi Swapp mists! Adding layers in different sizes behind my photo to add interest to my page is something I love to do and it is very simple! No need to think to much about it just start piling them on! Once I have all my layers I adhere to my page and begin the fun part of embellishing around my page. I used some of the Citrus Bliss wood veneers, Pebbles & Simple Stories enamel dots, Seven Paper glitter hearts and Fancy Pants Designs Summer Sun ephemera! Everything coordinates together so nicely it makes created a page super simple!
