Artsy for the CKC April Blog Hop

Hi :) If you are looking for the Lasting Memories Layout Challenge post you will find it here

Good Morning you all :) As I just checked on this post I come to find out I never took it out of draft mode (me bad :) So Good Afternoon :) If you came from the creative Jemma's 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. You 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:
Challenge #1: Shabby Chic Techniques
Challenge #2: C'est Magnifique, N'est Pas?
Challenge #3: Ephemera Encapsulated
I went with challenge #3, I added all the fun stuff I got at the local crop I attended this past February. I used this sketch over at The Memory Nest to help me create my layout:
 I used the paper that was sitting on the table I had to use for part of the story and I fussy cute the lady scrapbook clip art from the bottom of the page to add to the layout. The tickets I won for the each page I created I used at the top of the paper for a fun addition.
 My personal journaling and that cute clip art I fussy cut out.
 The title work
 And the picture of my table. I get into it when I'm at a crop. Grab the tote f necessities, grab my current Counterfeit Kit and my Page Maps book for some sketches and away I go!
Thanks for stopping by today, I'm your last stop on this hop. Everything on this layout, other than the items I got from the crop is old stash :) So with that said I am using Whimsical Musings prompt #33 Inspired by Old Stash, which is very fitting for a Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog Hop. The Title piece I bought years ago at JoAnns when it was on clearance. Bought it when I really loved glitter! I still do, but not like back then :) This piece is the old glitter that flakes off when you use it and to combat that I used tomboy wet adhesive like you would use glossy accents and coated it. I have one more title piece like this to use up yet and will probably being doing the same with that. which is very fitting for a Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog Hop.


  1. Looks like a fun (and productive) event! I have never been to a crop but maybe someday I'll get to one. I like the fun quotes and the way you tucked those tickets in too.

  2. What a fun and artsy take on the sketch. Bet you had such a good time! Thanks for playing at The Memory Nest.

  3. I always love seeing the bits of real life on the page & bonus points for old stash! You've got the CKC vibe nailed :D

  4. That's the kind of page all us scrapbookers love.

  5. This is such a fun page, Tina! Great take on the sketch and I love that you included things from the crop. Thanks so much for joining us at The Memory Nest!

  6. Love this. Too funny, I just used that photo as a caption for a challenge at for NSD! THanks for joining in at THE MEMORY NEST!

  7. I love how your interpretation resembles the sketch but at the same time makes it look so different (does that make sense)! Thanks for playing w/ us at TMN!

  8. tina, this is such a fun and artsy page!! LOVE what you created!!!
