The Good Life LO for Counterfeit Kit Challenge #2

 What a lovely day it is, Spring is really into the season in our area. Grass is a beautiful green, the early apple trees and pear trees are in blossom, daffodils in full beauty and the other Spring bulbs are now coming up. It's definitely my favorite season. 

The 2nd challenge of the month over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog. Leslie is the host this month and for this challenge she has chosen a challenge in true forger style. 

Don your beret & join in with the spirit of the Counterfeit Kit Challenge forger vibe!

I chose Lisa Dickinson's layout I love a multi-photo layout and this isn't my normal style with the openess of the layout but I loved the layering too
This is my
take on the layout, making sure I used those buttons I put in the kit and that bakers twine too
We spent a beautiful day outside enjoying the weather once it got warm enough to know Spring wasn't far away with the snow still on the ground can see Winter melting away :) I used so many things from my kit Spring Afternoon. The buttons, the wood veneer, the cutaparts, the stickers, the diecuts and some enamel dots too.

Thank you for stopping by today and seeing what I'm up to in my little corner of the world. I hope you join us over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog for this fun challenge.

Thanks Dave LO for Sketch N Scrap challenge

   Good Morning and welcome to the 2nd sketch challenge over at Sketch N Scrap challenge blog. We have this sweet sketch from Heather for our inspiration:

It just says Spring on this with the posies scattered about. With thinking of that I created this layout, it will be the accompanying page to the layout with pictures of Dave laying the mulch down.

I just love the beginnings of Spring seeing the daffodils as they growing into the flowers they become, with some sprucing up from Dave adding mulch the are of the front of the house isn't looking to bad. Just the beginnings right now in this picture. I used my current counterfeit kit Spring Afternoon for the paper and embellishment inspiration. 

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.

CKC - April 2021 Kit Reveal - Spring Afternoon

 Good Morning and Welcome! Ahh April a favorite month for me as I love Spring! and I love to see Spring all around me it makes my heart happy...... Spring flowers........... Spring also bring in the birds during migration so we get to see all kinds of birds in lots of colors too and that makes my heart happy too. You should have arrived here from Tara's blog, looking forward to seeing what all the ladies have come up with for their kits this month and you'll find a full list at the bottom of the post

Now it's April 1st and that also means that it's time for a new Counterfeit Kit Challenge and our host this month is Leslie and she has chosen a beautiful kit the Garden Party scrapbook kit: https://scrapbookandcards.com/garden-party-scrapbook-kit/Garden Party. 

Here is what she says about the kit: I wanted to use a source off the general range of choices. I know that whatever part of the globe you’re in we are all appreciating gardens about now – either looking forward to them or enjoying them at their peak.

Here’s how they describe it: Celebrate the arrival of a fresh new season with our spring kit, Garden Party! This colourful collection captures the colours and patterns of spring with papers from Dear Lizzy, Jen Hadfield, Paige Evans and Simple Stories. We’ve added perfectly coordinating accents like silk flowers, twine, tassels, mixed ephemera and bright buttons to add special touches to all your projects. And the exclusive 4×6 stamp set, printable tags and kit cut files will bring unique inspiration to your crafting. Let’s tiptoe through the tulips and dance in the daffodils at the Garden Party!
 
 Woohoo I actually have some of this kit in my stash! Paige Evans Bloom Street so that was the base of starting my kit

Spring Afternoon

My full kit! I got lots of goodies surrounding my papers and some fun mixed media stuff too!

Full sheets and some scraps too. That large floral from Bloom Street is what helped with my choices besides some of the things that had in the inspirational kit too. Close ups:

Mixed media and I'll be playing with stencils too
Chipboard and puffy stickers
Alphas, words, dollies, die cuts and wood veener
I brought in 2 6X8 paper pads too and also the Paige Evans sticker book

The tray of goodies has those loose stuff: Buttons, twine, washi tape, gems and enamels, more die cuts, ribbons and more doilies too there is blue ones there too under the yellow and pink ones. A fine kit for some fine photos that need to be scrapped! Thanks for stopping by now off you go to see what Tracey has in her kit and it would be great to see some of your kits too this month over at the Community facebook group

On The To Do List LO for Counterfeit Kit Challenge #2

 Hello and Good Morning :) The 2nd challenge of the month over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog. Clair is the host this month and for this challenge she has specified that we'd like you to take a little inspiration from the Paper Addict Cards and Elements to include some visible journaling on your project. Why not include your journaling in a list format, speech bubble, or notebook style?

So I was inspired by one of the papers in my kit that had words all over it and use that with 3 other papers for my layout of something I do weekly, a few times a week :) The To Do list item that I've done so often that I don't have to list it anymore.

Used that word paper for my main part of my layout, with additions of 2 other pattern papers. Added the fun lady bug ribbon and that heart scrap strip of paper too. Scattered lots of fun embellishments around the layout also using the priority paper for my list and a speech bubble too. Added some extra journaling to the lower center of the layout. It's been great working with current photos too :) a goal of mine to stay on top of 2021 photos this year.

Through the creation of the layout I accumulated 26 pts for Calvinball.  If you interesting in finding out more about Calvinball you can go here: to http://scraphappy.org/calvinball for more info! Thank you for stopping by today and seeing what I'm up to in my little corner of the world. I hope you join us over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog for this fun challenge.

New Birfeeder LO

 Hello :) Calvinball layout today :) This layout was created over the weekend :) The pictures are new pictures I took Saturday and I finished up the layout on Sunday. Took some pictures yesterday that will be for some upcoming layouts this month too :) why wait a whole year to scrap photos when I can print at home and get the layouts done now! 

This layout was created using Day 7 from Christys Beautiful Life series #30DSCBL7 and I got 15 points for Calvinball too. I used a cutfile from Kreative Cut club Nov 2019 kit

I used my current counterfeit kit: Teamwork for my layout pattern papers and such, found the apple diecuts in my stash in reference to the Green Apple tree that the birdfeeder is in.
