Welcome back! I have another layout to share with you that I created using the February Clique Kits kit "Hot Mess" and a Just Nick digital cut file. This is not a cut file that was created as an exclusive for Clique Kits!
A few posts back I shared some layouts of Nikolas at the Cupid Ball. This picture of the four of us was taken that same day. It was a crazy busy day as Mia had made her first Reconciliation that morning then the four of us went to the Woman's Club for the Cotillion culminating event. I love this picture of the four of us all gussied up. Nikolas is rapidly gaining height on all of us and continues to shoot to the sky height wise.
I converted the picture to a sepia tone in order to really let us shine. While we didn't clash, we certainly didn't get dressed with complements to one another's outfits! Love this cut file from Just Nick. I removed an inner circle from the flowers as it really looked like a bulls eye to me. I pondered watercoloring the inside of the flowers but decided to leave them be.
You wouldn't know it looking at these pictures but this kit has a TON of color to it. I just choose the embellishments and papers that worked with this muted color palate. It's understated yet feminine. The sepia and black really pop amongst the digital die cut lace, don't you think?
No more pictures from that day! This is the last of it I believe. It was really tough getting good pictures of the dance itself so I won't fuss with the ones that I did get. I do have a few of Nikolas and I standing outside that I really like but I think I might have made sure this memory will be remembered already. Perhaps I would use that picture for a layout about my relationship with my oldest. Hmmm... I like that idea. Stay tuned!
