Hi, it’s Aliza here, and I will just start by saying that I love the February kit! I love the colors, the cards, and the embellishments. When I first sat down to work with it, I pumped out two layouts in a day. I am NOT a fast scrapper, so this was big for me.
So first, here’s a little Hot Mess eye candy.
While I whipped up the following layout really fast, this blog post is another story. See, I was all set to share about documenting “real life,” even the less than perfect moments between ourselves and our children. I worked hard on keeping the tone of my layout positive and full of love. I was really proud of my words and the way it all looked.
My son, however, was not a huge fan of this layout. And so I struggled with how much to share. In the end, he gave me permission to blog about this layout if I blurred the text. Which just goes to show, that even though we have some rougher moments nowadays, he is a good guy who helps out his mother. Which is ultimately more important than jumping out of bed first thing in the morning.
So I will tuck this layout away, and maybe one day in the future, when he might be mystified by his own children’s behavior, I hope it can offer him some perspective. Only time will tell.For now, I will keep telling out stories as best I can. (And using my Clique Kits.)
