October Pep Rally

Welcome everyone to the Clique Kits October Pep Rally! You should be coming from 's Maryam's blog.

My layout today is kind of a continuation of this layout which I shared at the beginning of the month. In that one I wrote of my dream to live on or near the beach one day. If this would ever really happen, it would not be for a few decades. But a girl can dream.

As much as I love the ocean, there are other places I'd like to be as well. Being surrounded by green forests are pretty good for the soul too. 

Now, all I have to do is get super rich so I can afford to retire to many different locales.

I'll get right on that.

You can now scoot off to Megan 's blog.
Here is the full lineup:

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the hop!

New Clique Kits Team

Hi! And welcome to the Clique Kits blog hop featuring the new  team for the new year! If you're going in order, you have come from the blog of the fabulous Amanda O'banion.

This layout tells about just one part of me. It's a part that comes up in a lot of my scrapbooking. I live in New York City, which is fabulous, and a great place to raise kids. But there is a part of me that always craves a bit more of nature and the outdoors. Sometimes I don't notice it until I am out of the city, and I realize how good it feels deep in my soul. While traveling in South Carolina this summer, I fell in love with its coast, and by the end of our two week road trip, I was talking about retiring there. It's partly a joke. Who knows where I'll be in a quarter of a century (give or take). But the part about really, really loving it there is true.

I often work slowly on my scrapbook pages, so that I am careful to leave space for my words. But the photos were really important to me on this page, and I had so much fun adding the embellishments from the kit, that I soon realized that I would need more space than a mere 12x12 inches. Rather than create a two pager, I made a 1 1/3 page, using a Project Life divided page protector. This is something I would like to experiment with more.

What would you like to try more of in your scrapbooking?

Next stop is Maryam's blog. Enjoy!
