Autumn Blessings LO for Sketch N Scrap challenge

 Good Morning, the weather here in PA has been changing all over the place! Last week I think we had Indian Summer and now the temps have changed to the cooler weather of Fall. Welcome to the 2nd layout sketch challenge of the month over at Sketch N Scrap blog. Stacy has a sweet sketch for us to play with this month:

This was a fun sketch to play with :) I added an extra picture to my layout but the essence of the sketch is still there.

A walk that Buddy and I took on a Saturday night before the time change, enjoying a bit of time outside. The leaves have fallen quite a bit by then. Using my current counterfeit kit: Fall Breeze and the sequins came from my Kreative Cuts Club November 2019 kit. This sketch was great for the scraps of papers I had in my kit.

Thanks for stopping by today and seeing what I'm up to in my little corner of the world.
I look forward to seeing what you create from this fun sketch over at Sketch N Scrap.

Life is Lovely LO for CKC Challenge #1

 Good Morning and welcome :) The 1st challenge for Counterfeit Kit Challenge is here! for this month and Lisa has challenged us for the 1st challenge of the month with:

Getting Fussy!

Lisa says "There are several papers in the inspiration kit which just scream out to me for some fussy cutting and it's one of my favourite things to do! It's therapeutic and never takes as long as you think and the results are always pretty! It can be a perfect way to use brighter or bolder designs or add some individual embellishments to your kit. It really is one of my top five techniques. So I'm challenging you to fussy cut something from your kit and use it on a project!"

Definitely a challenge for me as fussy cutting is not one of my favorites in the scrappy world techniques :) but I'm up for the challenge and took these 2 papers from my kit 

Cut out these flowers from the 1st one and the Butterflies in the next one and used them for embellishments on my layout
Using the flowers to create a whimsical border around the picture adding the butterflies throughout the layout and the to create more whimsical feel to the layout I added the doodling from the butterflies flight path to ground them a bit.
I used the Day 4 sketch from Series 5 of Christy's Beautiful Life 30 days of sketches series for my layout inspiration as well as using my kit Fall Breeze with a few things pulled in that were on my scrappy desk and from my Bashket
Thank you for stopping by and seeing what I'm up to in my little corner of the world. Check out Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog for what the other forgers created for this fun challenge

CKC - November Kit Reveal - Fall Breeze

Good Morning and welcome to my little corner of the world :) Hey it's the 1st day of November and that means it's time for a new inspirational kit over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog and this month our host is Master Forger Lisa. We like to welcome Sarah Rice as our Guest Forger this month, she very active in our Facebook Community, She'll be joining us on IG  @sassybagladysarahscraps. But first you should arrived here from Tracey's blog there will be a full list of the blog hop at the end of the email. Lisa has chosen for us this kit to counterfeit this month:

Lisa: As most of you know, November is my favourite month of the year and I love doing the CKC kit at this time - and this year is no exception. I had a bit of a look around but as always the Hip Kit Club's autumn kit just got me and therefore, even though we just had the HKC a couple of months ago, I want to have it again this month as our inspiration! It's got a bit of everything - cosy days, leaves, flowers, autumn colours, homely feeling, cute embellies, and a handful of items that might be good for forging! I hope you love it too! I'll be showcasing the main kit but there is a pocket page and embellie kit too as well as some other mini-kits over there on the site. I like the fact that it's full of "real" product - not exclusives!

Hip Kit Club - October 2020

This is a pretty cool kit, love the rich color of the purple with the blues, yellows and the hints of orange. Love seeing the leaves and the plaids in this collection with the florals too. Great to see it based off a Simple Stories fall line too as Simple Stories is one of my favorite manufactures for kits and my kit finishes off with one of their collections too, but I did pull a kit together from various sources in my scraproom:
Fall Breeze


Fun papers to play with, lots of Gold with the alphas and words, couple of ribbons and some washi, found some fun small chipboard pieces in fall theme and I added both the Simple Stories Fall Farmhouse collection with 6x8 paper pad and a 6x6 paper pad fall theme.

Close ups of the kit:

Papers:

Variety of stickers and ephemera
Alphas and word stickers

6X6 paper pad and the 6X8 paper pad

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you'll join us and create your own version of this inspiration. Now off you go and see what Laura has curated on her instagram page


Now for the monthly blog list and the reveal enjoy hopping around and seeing what everyone has been inspired by the kit :)
