Lock 31 layout for Counterfeit kit Challenge #2

Good Morning and welcome :) The 2nd challenge of the month for Counterfeit Kit Challenge
Clair is our host this month and she is having fun with some of the elements that we're in the original kit for our challenge

This is a journaling challenge. Use the sentiments from the stamp sets included in the inspiration kits as a starting point for your story. I've included the stamp sets above, so you don't need to head off and find them!
So I found 2 stamps from the stamp set I included that works with this challenge and included with the layout:
The background paper is the B side of one of the floral papers, seemed like the right color to go with the stickers I used in my clusters that included my stamping that includes the journaling challenge from Clair. Stamped in black ink it's hard to tell in the photograph.
 Using stickers from the kit and some glitter enamels for the clusters.
It's been fun working through this day trip using my current counterfeit kit: Spring Cleaning as the 2 middle papers are scraps from a layout I did the day before :) Love cleaning up scraps like that.
Thanks for stopping by today and Can't wait to see what you create for this fun challenge over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge

Easter LO for a Use Your Stuff challenge

Good morning and welcome to my 2nd layout of the day. Welcome to the 1st challenge of the month\ over at Use Your Stuff challenge blog, the theme for this challenge is Easter.
During these current times we had to change up alot of things we normally do, for us this year we had to cancel our Annual Easter Egg hunt with our Grandkids. Something we look forward to doing in the Spring. While cleaning and revamping my room I came across this pile together so knew it had to be used for a layout.
A fun unfinished project from 2013 and I know I made those PL cards on the layout back then as I was doing PL then, really need to get back to that year and finish it off. I used this fun sketch for this layout from the BYSS facebook group.
No photo description available.
Took a bit to do it, but love the out come of the layout.
I look forward to seeing your creation for this fun challenge over at Use Your Stuff challenge blog.

Wayne County's Glass Layout for Stick It Down challenge

Hello and welcome  :) Today is Stick It Down's double page layout sketch and this month we have a fun sponsor over at Stick It Down too:

Handipaper is a digital craft store, where you will find printables, clipart sets and a wide variety of digital cutting files for scrapbookers, cardmakers and DIY lovers.

 We have a fun sketch this month to play with:
 This is what I created with the sketch:
 I've been scrapping a fun day trip this past week and this was one of the cool exhibits at the museum. Using both my current counterfeit kit: Spring Cleaning and last month's counterfeit kit: Backyard Oasis (the floral paper) plus 14 items from my BASHket made for a fun layout.
 The left side I used 2 photos for the large photo, I almost always play with 4x6 photos so for me this is the easiest way to do the large photos when the sketch call for it :) the journaling block was a fussy cut out piece from a cut apart that is in my current kit. Added some fun pieces for my BASHket too.
The right side has 3 photos as I took a photo oh the sign and used that for my title. more cut aparts and pieces from my BASHket. This layout is part of my Honesdale, PA Roadtrip.
Thank you for stopping by today to see what I'm up to in my little corner of the world. I look forward to seeing what you create with this fun sketch over at Stick It Down challenge blog

CKC - April Kit Reveal - Spring Cleaning

April showers bring May Flowers and Spring cleaning too. But then we are in a time at the moment that all are cleaning! I hope I find you all well during these troubling times.......
The beginning of the new month brings also a new kit to play with for Counterfeit Kit  Challenge blog. You should have arrived here from Tara's blog, if not there is a complete blog hop at the end of the post.  To help us on our way with our kits this month, we have the lovely Mel Davis, as our gest designer for the month. You can find Mel over on Instagram, where she has a dedicated scrapbooking feed -
 Clair is our hostess this month and she has us being inspired by Cocoa Daisy: Orchard Path collection:
A wonderful Spring collection and it's a memory kit it has the pocket cards for the month of March with it. Love the Mustard Yellows, the variety of Greens, the Pink plaid, The Coral/Salmon color and a touch of Red in the kit. So with that in mind this is what I came up with for my kit.
My kit I affectionately call it Spring Cleaning:
I have been cleaning up my scraproom actually since January I've been in the process of revamping my scraproom and things are still packed up as I go through them. So I have limited supplies in my room and through those and a pile of scraps I was able to come up with this fun kit! There is some old and some new in this kit too.
 Here are my papers, I found out I don't have alot in the mustard yellow, lots of greens, pinks, corals and some blue too. 18 pieces of full papers, but loads of scraps in this kit! I'm thinking it's going to make some fast pages.
 Brought in some pocket cards and I did find a Heidi Swapp collection that had that Mustard Yellow so got the 6X6 paper pad in there too.
 Some of the embellishments, including frames, chipboard, wood veneer, word phrase stickers too
 I included the one stamp set that came with the Heidi Swapp collection Honey & spice plus the glitter enamels I could find. Below is the 2 die cut packs from the collection and it has lots of florals.
 I still have lots leftover from last month's kit that will work perfectly well with this kit :) Thanks for stopping by today and I do hope you join us this month with this fun inspiration.
 Now off you got to see what the fabulous Tracey has been inspired by this kit. 

Here is this month's blog hop!
