 Good Morning and welcome to my blog. Today I have my first layout done from my Counterfeit kit challenge for November, Yay me! Wow where did this month go! and I got a little over a week to kill this kit, guess I'll be doing lots of scraping this coming week:
Mostly everything on this layout came from my Nov. Kit. My goal this coming week is to finish up this album and give it to Katherine before the new baby arrives. I got enough layouts left to knock out this kit, I brought in the blue water paper as an added addition to the kit and the frame to complete the page. It's a layout within a layout, see the At The Pool section is a layout I got at the Silhouette store and most of the pieces cut are from Design #20249 (Lori Whitlock design) and I included Design ID #1383 for the title on that section of the layout and Design ##29024 (Sarah Bailey design) for the layout title: H2o. Zachary enjoys the water and I wanted to include the other Grandparents in the album too. I used the plaid for a neutral background, then went to work on that 8 X 8 layout cutting a variety of the pieces from the kit. Brought in the green cardstock to separate the photo from the paper and to give a bit of a design triangle with the photos on the side. While trying to bust my stash and looking for some glue dots on my clip it I came across a pack of frames and decided to use one for the sprinkler pictures. Layout 1 completed :)
I enjoyed working with this kit and it didn't take to long to pull it all together, cutting the pieces in the morning and putting the layout together last night in just a couple of hours.
Thanks for stopping by and seeing the view from my little corner of the world.

Don't forget about the big prize for the blog follower giveaway there is a few weeks to go and I'm gathering stuff for the box each day.
