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 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.

Calvinball 2021 Begins!

 Yay! it's the beginning of March. A new counterfeit kit, Spring will be here soon and Calvinball 2021 begins! What is Calvinball? you say? it's a fun scrapbooking game created awhile back and now it's home is on the ScrapHappy site. It's free to play along and there is no prizes but lots of fun and bragging rights too

So as I'm blogging about this and here is my 1st layout created in March I get a point for blogging it too!

I needed a quick layout yesterday for my daily layout and after checking out the sketch at Christy's Beautiful Life's youtube channel for the new month series of 30 Days of Sketches 7 I found these fun photos that I knew I could make into circle as was the sketch for the day. So for Calvinball I was able to count the layout for 1 pt, the stars for 1 pt and I blasted the layout on Instagram and my personal Facebook page for a point and now blogging it gets me another point so 4 points total for this layout!

Thanks for stopping by today to see what I'm creating in my little corner of the world :)

CKC - March 2021 Kit Reveal - Teamwork

 Good Morning and welcome :) It's a new month and that means its a new kit to inspire us over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge. I didn't kill my last month's kit but boy did I use a bunch of it! I did over 30 layouts last month and want to keep the momentum going so that means a fun kit created from my stash. 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

First let's welcome our Guest Designer this month the wonderful Julie Kirk.You can find Julie over on her Instagram

Clair is pour hostess this month and she has chosen a fun colorful kit for us this month: I love to take the reins here at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge in March, when the world starts to feel just that little bit warmer and the first little leaves start to show themselves after winter. And, normally, my kit choice for the month would also feature a lot of lovely leaves and florals but, this month's inspiration kit is a little bit different! It's the beautiful Paper Addict Kit from Mommyish - and it's digital


Wow that is one fun kit to inspire some school pictures and things to do pictures to scrap. I was drawn to the colors and all those phrases, thought school embellishments right away. Knew I would be getting some Pink Fresh Office Hours into my kit too as it has alot of this type of thing in that collection. My kit is called:


Container of goodies, lots of ribbon that I pulled for the month, lots of school stickers, pack of colored wood veneer that has paper airplanes in it, lots of office puffy stickers and chipboard too.

Papers are 12x12, 6x6 paper pad and scraps of papers

I also added some Project Life cards to the kit something that I want to use this year and there are some in the inspirational kit too

A few little extras that I didn't put in the container I had to round out the kit :) Should be a blast to play with and get lost of school pictures scraped this month. 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

Let's take a look at Julie's kit for the month, then take a little hop around with the rest of the DT.
