Houston! We Have A Problem! layout for Counterfeit Kit Challenge 2nd Challenge

Good Morning and welcome :) Today Master Forger Cindy has challenge us for the 2nd challenge of the month over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog to Mix and Match Journaling or Title for our project. We have them in our stash - alphabet stickers, word stickers, stamps, dies and even punches. The challenge is to use at least two different alphabet styles for your title or journaling.
Challenge on! Here is the title that I created from 2 different alphas in my stash:
 A fun take on the LOAD prompt too :) That helped me come up with my title of my layout and the story to journal too.
 Using paper, alphas and embellishments from my counterfeit kit: Summer Life, this is in it's truest form of what our summer life is. Enjoying days out and about with friends and if we're seeing Minneapolis Molines tractors then the day is even better!
For my layout inspiration I used this sketch:
http://evenmorescrapping.blogspot.com/2016/08/kingdom-rock-vbs-layout.html
From Even More Scrapping blog.
 I was glad to spin the story of the issue with the hubby's car's air conditioner for this day trip. Yes we did have a problem, the air conditioning was not working, found out about an hour into the ride down. For me I was trying to take a nap when it was just toooo hot! Working the night shift and leaving after work I do this quite often on the weekends if we want to go somewhere. Well not much sleep but the day was great anyways.
 Me with my wind blown hair from having the car windows down.
 Yes we do enjoy seeing the old tractors. Thank you for stopping by today and I look forward to seeing you creation for this challenge linked up over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog.

my card:

Your A Star layout for Sketches in Thyme Project Life Style challenge

Good Morning and welcome to the 2nd challenge sketch of the month over at Sketches in Thyme Project Life Style and this is the sketch That Emma created for this month:
 No automatic alt text available.
 Here is the PL card I created :) I flipped the sketch to acheive the look I wanted:
 I had fun creating the PL card for some special snapshots of the day.
 Britney our grandaughter enjoying a fun selfie moment with her BFF Amber, heading to the club to celebrate her 24th Birthday. This was created using a LOAD prompt for the day too.I used the challenge PL card for my title block and got inspiration for the layout from an old sketch from Sketch N Scrap: That I found on pinterest that I can't find now! I used my current counterfeit kit: Summer Life and last month's kit: Dash of This and Dash of That for the birthday items on the layout.
 Britney is on the right side of the picture. I used another PL card for my journaling and lots of word phrases for the layout too. Used camera icons for the LOAD prompt about technology and also stars too
This was just a sweet, fun picture of the girls. It's good to see Britney happy. Thanks for stopping by today and seeing what I'm doing in my little corner of the world. I look forward to seeing your creation over at Sketches in Thyme Project Life Style

Abi & Mark layout for Stick It Down challenge

Hello and sheesh this post has been in draft mode! This was to be posted on Monday and now it is Saturday it's been a long week. This layout was created with this fun double page sketch over at Stick It Down
 
This is the layout I created with this sketch:
This was our neice's wedding in June and we were so glad to share this day with her and Mark. I changed the sketch on the right to hold 4 photos. I used one paper pad for my layout colors and used the colors that were here wedding colors for the layout.
The left side of the layout I used a doily heart for the background piece and I used silver taper for the border. Used some alphas from a previous counterfeit kit and used the flower stickers that were in my basket on my desk to work through. Loved this for their presentation page as Mr & Mrs.
 The right side of the page had the other pictures I took of the wedding, Abby's father walking her down the aisle, their first dance and the reception table decoration. My journaling block and some rhinestones I found on my desk too thought this was a good place to use it.
 Love this cut out for a cluster block with the flower stickers, punched out hearts, some rhinestones and purple gems
 The title block
and y journaling. I still have some family pictures from this wedding that I want to scrap yet. Thanks for stopping by today and so sorry for the delay in posting. Now I look forward to seeing your creation over at Stick It Down where you'll find 3 fun sketch challenges throughout the month.

In the School House layout for Use Your Stuff challenge-Triangles

Good Morning and welcome :) I hope you are having a great start to this first full week of August. Today I am the host over at Use Your Stuff challenge blog and the challenge I chose to host is Triangles....Let's see these lovely shapes on your project for the week.......
This is what I created using triangles:
For my layout inspiration I used pinterest and also used my current counterfeit kit: Summer Life. This was our 1st stop at the fair, we always enjoy seeing what the kids have created and these were a few of our favorites and I can see the judges liked them too. I used 3 pattern papers from my kit that I pulled together from my 100 pattern paper pile.
 My journaling
 The corner picture of the building itself. I used some of the paper clips in my kit for the layout in reference to school and I also grabbed an old pack of stickers I got at the dollar store when I first started scrapping that had reference to school
 3 of my favorite exhibits in the school house :) I did some doodling on the background triangles
plus the quilt had a triangle edge too. This is part of our Summer Life seeing the local fair and this is gonna be a good month to scrap those memories with my counterfeit kit. Thank you for stopping by today to see what I'm up too in my little corner of the world....
If your seeing triangles in your creating this week then come on over to Use Your Stuff challenge blog and link it up...
