HK Memory Chest Kit Club - January 2016

Happy New Year!! Welcome to 2016. We spent Christmas and the New Year in the UK, so we rang in the new year at a good friend's house with dinner, lots of alcohol and some back garden fireworks.

Christmas was a big family affair at the in-laws, with sixteen sitting around the dining room table - so much food and drink and it didn't stop for days. Feeling very full and fat. Definitely have to get back into Zumba mode very soon.

Let's start of the new year with a lovely kit. It's more of a fall kit, but the purples, blues and neutrals are so gorgeous, you just have to match them to some of your more colourful photos.

The sketch for this month:

Cherish This
Just look at the oranges, yellows and purples. Goes perfectly with what Miss C is wearing. Her trousers are showing up very blue in this photo - must be my printer. 
Are these feet not adorable?  They are a good complement to the leaves and boots photo.
I fussy cut the berries and the acorn from one of the papers. For transparent accents, I used glue dots to stick them down. You can also use double sided tape but I didn't have any with me on holiday.

Grateful Memories
 I love the deep fuchsia backing paper and it's a perfect foil for the multi colours of the striped papers. The photo is of Miss C's and her good friend who has just left Hong Kong.
 The little foxes are just too cute and I placed one on each side to frame the photo. Just a few flowers and a chevron arrow to frame the title.
 I balanced off the top right corner of the photo with more flowers.
I love the puffy stickers in the kit and also the flower paperclips that add that extra accent.

Here We Go
 We get a stack of 6x6 patterned papers in the pack and they are great for doing patching/collage layouts.  I cut out the heart from white cardstock, cut out the triangles and paper to fit. The photos were taken just before Christmas on the trampoline in my sister in law's garden with Miss C's cousin. They get on so well and it's so fun to see them playing together.
 I left the embellishments quite simple to showcase the heart, so just left little clusters of accents.
I added some splatters around the page to balance it out.
