African Savanna LO for the CKC Challenge #2 - Tic Tac Toe

Good Morning and welcome to the 2nd challenge of this month over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog. Our host this month Master Forger Cindy challenge us to a Tic Tac Toe challenge:

With a wide variety of elements in out kits, everything from animals to pencils, hot dogs to insects, hearts to zebras it may be a bit daunting to  figure out where to start,  I made a Tic Tac Toe grid to get you going. I pulled items from each of the kits and the categories are listed with a few ideas following. Pick your row and tell us what you are using. 

I chose to the diagonal from the top left to the bottom right. Pulling elements for the double page layout from a visit at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo from our Cleveland Trip in 2018

 It was fun to finally get started on the Zoo portion of our trip, this was our 1st stop and wit my Nature part of my CKC Summer's End and the washi tape that I have been using throughout the album I made this fun 2 page layout. 

Thanks for stopping by today and seeing what I've been creating in my scrappy corner of the world and I look forward to seeing the row you choose to create with :)

 This is what I created with this sketch:
I added an extra photo to my layout :) The last set of pictures from that day the girls were at Chuck E Cheese. Emily sure was having fun. I use my counterfeit kit from last month: Sparkle in Purple for the layout to keep it cohesive with the other layouts. I had fun finding bits and pieces to add to the embellishments
Thanks for stopping by today and seeing what I'm up to in my little corner of the world.

Choo Choo layout for Stick It Down challenge

Good Morning and welcome to the Stick It Down double page challenge for September. We had this wonderful sketch from Lauren to use for our inspiration:
This is the layout I created :)
I had come across this envelope of the Great Granddaughters enjoying a day a Chuck e Cheese and little Ava (atleast she was little then she started Kindergarten this year!) was enjoying the train. I used last month's counterfeit kit: Sparkle in Purple, the color combo of that kit was great for the tracks of pattern paper for the layout. I included some train stickers to make that border edge under the pictures :) Some close up of the layout:
 Added glitter dots and glitter stars too.
A couple of cameras and those wood veneer arrows to finish off the layout. Thanks for stopping by today to see what I'm up to in my little corner of the world and I look forward to seeing your creation with this sketch.

CKC - September Kit Reveal - Summer's End

Good Morning and welcome to my little corner of the world :) Hey it's the 1st day of September and that means it's time for a new inspirational kit over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog and this month our host is Master Forger Cindy. But 1st you should have arrived her from Tara's blog. Welcome to our Guest Designer this month:  Misty Murphy, she can be found on her You Tube channel Crafty Soup Video ( here.
From Cindy:
 Summer is almost over, schools are starting, leaves are changing here in Minnesota, the weather is great, the garden is producing, we are still grilling and enjoying the patio and deck, I am not ready for the white stuff to come.  
With that said, I picked a kit that that has a little bit of all of this going on. It is the August 2020 Flavors of the Month Kit from The Scraproom.  I love how I will be able to scrap all of this with just one kit and how I can combine the kits and make a layout using a little bit of all of them. It is like one giant kit or four small ones.

You can find the kit here and an unboxing video here,

Cindy's right we are seeing here in PA the end of the garden harvesting, finally some cooler weather and Schools is starting. We're still grilling here and enjoying our back porch/patio while we can before the temps change so with that said I stayed in the 4 sections to create my kit: 
Summer's End

My 1st section is cooking related too using the last of my Echo Park Homegrown Collection and some scraps that I found along the way with some cute die cuts from my old swapping days. This includes 2 sticker sheets too and die cuts pack (I was surprised how many were left in the pack):

The next selection was the school block so I grabbed the one school collection I had bits and pieces of from CTMH Chalk It Up with that I added 2 papers from last month's kit the blue stars and swirls and the red. The CTMH collections has plenty of cardstock with it that I can use that across the other collections. The chipboard, the stamp set and some bits I added (owls) to finish up this selection:

For the bottom left section I went with a younger boy's collection thinking of some older grandboy pictures and a trip to the Museum of Earth in Ithaca NY pictures that will work with this collection from PhotoPlay: Jurassic that includes stripe paper, dotted paper, Dinosaurs, footprints, cutaparts, a fun sticker sheet and some die cuts. I added a stripe paper from Three Bugs in a Rug (old paper!) and an unknown dotty paper that probably came out of a paper pad, the only thing I might have to add is some alphas.

The last one is a nature based section which I included the mushroom paper from last month's kit, 4 sheets from the Pink Paislee Again & Again collection, stickers and die cuts from Heidi Swapp's Honey & Spice collection, enamel dots, a couple of odd ball cutaparts and some mushrooms in wood veneer and die cut

 A smaller kit than my usual kit, but I still got lots left over from last month to play with yet :) Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you'll join us and create your own version of this inspiration. Now off you go and see what Tracey has curated on her blog

 Now for the monthly blog list and reveal, enjoy hopping around and seeing what everyone has been inspired by from the kit.
