Lucky Dog layout - Sketch 114

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:
and this is what I created for my layout:
Using some old 4X6 pocket style cards and cutting them down just a wee bit to work for what I wanted for this layout:
 Going with a grid design for my layout thanks to RTS scarpbooking and Janet's new fun series about go to designs. I used that plaid pattern paper from my current counterfeit kit: Just Bloomin' Lovely  and the wood veneer arrows too that were in the kit. From just that one day shopping I thinks so far I got 4 layouts done and still got a few more to do from the pictures I took. Another grid layout will be coming from those pictures too but that is a story to tell another day.
 The close ups of the layout
 The card I created with additional wood veneer stars that I dressed up the layout with.
also added the enamel hearts that are in the kit too. Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to seeing your creation with this fun sketch over at Sketches in Thyme Project Life Style.

No automatic alt text available.
This is what I created with it:
Using a variety of Counterfeit kit elements on this layout and used those fun tassel bows that I made too :) Fun to add an handmade touch to the layout. Fun day for us as we headed out to do some really early Christmas shopping. Using 4 layers on the layout with both the vellum and the acrylic strip of hearts combine for one layer and used the sticker border to hide the tape showing through the vellum. The red and green in the photos of the changing of the season helped with the feel of the day and it was good to finally see some red from the changing leaves as we had not seen it in our area yet :) Thanks for stopping by and seeing what I'm creating and I look forward to seeing what you create with this fun layout sketch over at Sketch N Scrap.

Legacy Bricks featuring Stars layout a Use Your Stuff challenge

Good Morning :) and welcome to this week's challenge over at Use Your Stuff Blog. The challenge this week is to use stars on our layout:

 I used stars on this layout as my embellishment. The photos were taken by the hubby at the Rock N Roll Hal of Fame while we were there, some interesting reading on the blocks and that is what I thinks spark his interest in taking the photos and since this trip included both of us it's nice to have pictures from his point of view.
This came about from LOAD1018 Day 21: The Phantom of the Opera. The prompt was The Phantom's life is ruled by music. Music can make us recall things, is used as a therapy technique and to help dementia patients. What song has impact on your life or brought out an emotion in you? OR Black & White are the colors on the show's Playbill. Use them both in your layout today. As I have done the 1st part of the prompt many times already so I decided to do the 2nd prompt of the Black & White color scheme as it's a music venue I guess I got the 1st prompt too with just a slight turn.I was also able to use this for the Whimsical Musings challenge #308 be inspired by lines. Lines all over the place on this layout.
Close ups on the layout:
 Using stars in the title area
Another one here with the journaling.
and more here with the camera. Thinking Stars and Cameras will both be good to use throughout the Cleveland Vacation Album to keep consistency throughout it :)
Thank you for stopping by today and seeing what I'm doing in my little corner of the world and I look forward to seeing your creation for this fun challenge prompt over at Use Your Stuff blog challenge

Into The Spin layout for Lasting Memories challenge

Good Morning and welcome to this week's challenge over at Lasting Memories. Deanna is our hostess this month for challenges over at Lasting Memories and our theme for November is - Techniques - and today she has challenged us to:

Now, we're gonna start getting a little messy with this week's challenge. I want to see 'Watercolors, Paint, and/or Misting'. Use as much or as little as you want, but hope you'll get a bit messy and have FUN! Since my birthday is this week, I would love to see Birthday themed layouts.

 I got the 1st part but not the birthday part of the challenge:
A double page for me today :) I have included the misting on the layout of photos that I took while we were watching a show at Knoebels, taking a slight break from all the fun we were having.
This was created during LOAD1018 Day4: South Pacific was the featured Broadway play and the prompt was either: Pull out a vacation story you've been meaning to tell OR Use misting or a bold splatter technique to set off those vacay photos, or any photos you choose. I chose the latter prompt :) for my layout. I had used a sketch for the layout but did not note the sketch to refer to it. I also used my counterfeit kits:) August Kit: Summer Life, September kit: Falling For You and October Kit: Tainted Love, using the flower background paper from the Summer Life kit the navy paper from my September kit: Falling For You and that fun bicycle paper from my October kit. Cool that I get 3 papers to work together like that from 3 different kits :) all the embellishments from my October kit :)
Close up of the layout:
Left Side:
and the Right Side:
It was a fun show and gave a nice break from walking around the park.
Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to seeing your creation over at Lasting Memories

Happy Anniversary Cards for Funday Friday Challenge

Good Morning and welcome :) Today is Funday Friday over at Jo's Scrap Shack and with the theme of Anything Goes. Our sponsor for this week's challenge is Little Blue Button Stamps. I created 2 cards with the left over Love Birds – printable art tiles bottle caps designs:

 Love when I can get rid of my stash and also when I can eliminate a few extra stamps and get cards made from them. I was challenged to use circles in various ways on another site so the 1st card is the 3 circles in 3 different sizes for the background. The 2nd card was the circles to be used in a wreath and I added the art prints to both cards in the center of the circles in play.
Using some 6X6 paper from my current counterfeit kit: Just Bloomin' Lovely it was easy to get this put together and came together fairly quickly too. Thanks for stopping by today and I look forward to seeing your creation for this fun challenge.

CKC-November Forgery

Good morning and welcome :) Today is the 4th and that is Forgery day over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog. For my counterfeit kit Just Bloomin' Lovely:
I wanted to do those fun tassel bows that were in the inspiration kit. With plans to do the forgery I made sure to include thread in my kit to make the tassel bows out of:
 I used my hand to wrap the thread around my fingers till I had what I wanted
 wrapped up the ends in the middle of the bow to create the center of the bow and knotted off
 Then clipped it and cleaned it up a bit
to create these fun bows, so easy to make and didn't take long at all.
The other thing I forged in the inspiration kit was the Vicki Boutin's Field Notes collection called Daydreamer as soon as I seen that in the kit I knew that one would be so easy to forge and I had fun forging it too :)
 The inks I used to create the paper, I also used a regular coffee cup and also some Heidi Swapp Gold color shine:
 A smaller cup bottom would have worked better but I love how this turned out and look forward to using in on a layout.
 Closeups
 I hope that you are inspired to try your hand at counterfeiting! Thanks for stopping by and seeing what I'm up to in my little corner of the world.
