CKCB August Members' Blog Hop

Hello and Good Morning. Today is the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog August blog hop and you should have come to my blog from Lisa's blog :) So excited to go and see what Lisa has done, but I'm excited to go and see what all the members have done. So if you are just now joining the hop you may want to go to Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog to start at the beginning of the hop. This month we got to choose from these 3 challenges:
Challenge #1:  Blank Canvas:  Make white the base for your project
Challenge #2:  Gift-wrap Inspired: Take a design element from gift-wrap and get creative
Challenge #3:  "Friends": Use the word "Friends as inspiration

I chose to do challenge #1 and start with a blank canvas. I'm not one for doing this but it seems most of the layouts and the forgeries I did this month started from plain cardstock. So I got a sheet of white cardstock and went looking for a sketch to use for the chosen pictures I have and found a good one at Scrapbook Challenges and went with the original one for my layout:

A very fun sketch to follow and gave a nice backdrop to my pictures and papers from my kit.
 I used a card out of the Basic Grey: Capture snippets pad and cut it up to include on the layout in 3 places. I added SU candy dots and misted with Heidi Swap's Teal color shine
 The papers come from my current kit and one of my former kits. I was enjoying capturing these pictures of the Downy Woodpecker that day The sun was so bright that day I had to get under the tree to see to take most of the pictures

This is the cut up spot that has part of the journaling A added one of the felt pieces I had in my kit and the arrow piece was from the strip piece off of the 12 X 12 paper
Here again is the other cut up piece for journaling and more of that strip. These pictures are very current was take in July so they came in from the last batch of photos I got done. It's nice to have a variety of pictures around to choose from some current and some not so current. Thank you for stopping by and seeing what's up in my little corner of the world.
