It's the August Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog Hop

Good Morning and welcome to August Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog Hop.I'm following the very inspiring Margie and if you are coming from her blog then your on the right track :) but if not you may want to start at The Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog and get on board with the first stop on this month's blog hop. This is always a fun blog hop showing off the ladies creations from their current counterfeit kit. This month, you can choose to share any project you have made with your Counterfeit Kit Challenge kit which you have not shared on your blog yet. Your project could be related to any of the three challenges or maybe just something you made with your kit. As a reminder, here are the three challenges this month: 
I went Outside my Stash for this layout to include a postcard I purchased and the brochure to add to my Double Page layout:
 This was from a day trip in May for our Anniversary, we have been going by the sign for this place many, many times. Well my husband surprised me and on a whim we stopped to check it out. I used this sketch over at Let's Scrap sketches:


 This is my go to blog for when I want to do double sketches, when I have lots of photos. This one was fun to do and it had that interactive part of the layout that I could add more photos.
I thought that from the Kraft Kuts collection that the scallop circle would be the better addition for those side pieces on the sketch. This side it held my title for the layout. Added some of those rubons that were in my kit and I also used up the travel stickers from the one pack I had in the kit.
 The postcard that I purchased, I do like to get these for layouts it just seems to be a better picture and I love the angle of this one.
The right side of the layout holds 6 photos (2 are hidden) and the brochure. I attached with the intent that it can be opened.
Lots of information about the Flour Mill in the brochure.
When you open up the scallop circle on the right hand side you get these 2 extra pictures and some extra journaling.
More journaling about the day. This layout was also created on the last day of the Summer Lovin LOADmini Day 7: Summer is a Time For Adventure: We haven't taken many road trips this summer, but we did get this day trip in. Really enjoying scrapping with this month's counterfeit kit  Easy Livin' and I still have a week to play with it :)
Thank you for stopping by and do continue on with the blog hop and see what Salla has created she does so many different creative things :) and you can see what she did create at her blog.

  2. Another double spread! Great! And so many great details to explore and discover on the page. I particularly love the two interactive elements. I have some of that kraft shaped paper from way back in the day - I'll have to fish it out and get it used up! Thanks for the inspiration.

  5. That sketch couldn't have been more perfect! What a fun outing for your anniversary. I love having postcards from trips as you are right - the photo is often better than what I could get. Love that traveler quote - I copied that down for future reference :) The only thing missing is, what did you buy???

  10. What a great way to use shaped papers, (and I have so many of them). Super trick to get more photos into the layout. I imagine you could even accordion two or three under there. Thanks for the excellent ideas.
