Full of happiness today! / Hip Kit CT

Good morning everyone!!
 I am here to share a layout with you that I made for the Hip Kit club Creative Team using the amazing Hip Kit Clubs October kits! I used a sketch for the inspiration of this layout, Ashley Horton created the sketch and the cut file you see on my layout. 
When I saw the sketch I knew that I wanted to do a sewn circle, because one its on the sketch and I loved it and two because I love sewing on my layouts :) Well to do everything else on my layout I had to first choose a starting point, my starting point was the background and I chose this lovely Amy Tangerine paper from her finders keepers line. As I've said before, Im a fan of patterns, polka dots, stripes, florals, plaids....lol pretty much anything thats got a pretty pattern!

After I used the cut file, I added a a strip of the American crafts Fountain cardstock from the cardstock kit. I love the combo of the orangey/coral color mixed with the aqua/teal color.  I had pulled some of my fall pictures and decided I wanted to scrap these photos from our 1st "camping trip" last summer. All the kids were phsyced to do this, but I wanted to do a dry run and see how it was going to be since we had a one year old that had never been, so we grabbed all of our camping stuff and camped in the back yard, lol. It ended up being a really great night! All of the kids had a blast, including the youngest.

Here is the sketch created by Ashley Horton
If youd like to play along with us, please feel free to! You can go join the Hip Kit club facebook page and see the weekly challenges.

Now to embellish this layout I grabbed a bunch of the Pink Paislee, Cedar Lane embellishment in these kits! I grabbed some from the embellishment kit, Project life kit and the the Main kit
The Pink Paislee ephemera pack is beautiful with all of the cardstock pieces along with the acetate and gold foil pieces! ooohh! Love! And all the pretties went great with my layout! I tucked different pieces under the edges of my photos and around my title. And I cant get enough of those cute puffy stickers, I became a BIG fan of those fast! And I'm really happy that the shaped paper clips are back! All of these different things make great embellishment and make the pages pop!
