Simple Pleasures LO for Counterfeit Kit Challenge

Good Morning and welcome :) The days are just flying by this month! This month the weather has been cool, sometimes down right cold and windy too. Most of the leaves are off the trees now and you can tell mother nature is ready for winter.

Today is the 2nd challenge over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog and our month's host Lisa has challenged us:

Celebrate Your Kit!

In my celebratory month, I decided it was time to just have some fun. Take out the absolute favourite items from your kit and turn them into a layout that you love. 

Don't double think your choices - if it sparks joy (pun intended), then it deserves a place on your page.

Record a story that is full of joy and celebration and match it up with a photo that makes your heart sing. 

What could be better as a celebration of this wonderful hobby of ours?

Here is what I created from this challenge


Love the idea of not over thinking this out it made for a faster layout. From my Falling Leaves kit:  I love plaids so I grabbed that, I love Pinkfresh Studios products so I grabbed those and found some fun ribbon to add along :) Loving the fall collection from Pinkfresh Studios for this layout as the cozy home feel is perfect for a layout about reading another thing that brings me joy :) 

 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.

October LO for Sketch n Scrap challenge

  Good Morning and welcome :) November has been a month of falling leaves, rainy days and cooler weather!  Been trying to take pictures when I can of this Fall, but with the weather it's a bit tough but I think I got the essence of the season.  Now on to the Sketch N Scrap challenge for the day. A wonderful sketch from Stacy to play with today.

Love that circle in the sketch I was able to add a doily to my layout something I don't do much anymore. Multi-photo layout for some early Fall pictures from this year
I used my current counterfeit kit: Falling Leaves for the layout the background paper from Stampin Up is perfect for Fall pictures and with added leaves scattered about and some glitter glue spots made for a fun layout to put together. Thanks for stopping by today to see what I created and can't wait to see what you create from this cool sketch over at Sketch N Scrap blog.

Happy Birthday Deer card for Sketch n Scrap challenge

 Good morning and welcome to the 1st card sketch over at Sketch N Scrap challenge blog. I love a versatile card sketch and this card sketch from Lisa is certainly that! I'm gonna have to give it another go with a Christmas theme, but for now I made a birthday card for my daughter's boyfriend's upcoming Birthday. Here's the sketch: 

This is the card I created
He likes the outdoors and hunting so thought this would be a good match for him. I changed up the sketch just a wee bit so I could have that huge deer head on the card.  Thanks for stopping by today to see what I created and can't wait to see what you create from this cool sketch over at Sketch N Scrap blog.

CKC - November 2021 Kit Reveal - Falling Leaves

 Good Morning :) How can we be in November already! This year is going by so fast..... Just think next month is Christmas, eek! this girl is not ready for that. But this girl is ready to scrap all the adventures she has had thus far in 2021. First you should have arrived here from Misty's blog  I'm excited to see what she has put together this month.

Lisa is our host this month and this is what she said about her choice:  I wanted something seasonal - I even considered going festive - and looked around for a kit club we haven't used for a while with warm, cosy autumnal kits to choose from. I was really happy to find exactly what I was looking for over at Felicity Jane. Their September 2021, Emily kit has the most gorgeous palette of colours and the kit seems to be full of the most lovely bits and pieces to form a wonderful selection of scrapbooking scrumptiousness. It shouts short days with blue skies and sunshine; the first really bitterly cold morning with heavy frost and mist on the fields; of setting down on the sofa with a new TV show to binge watch while wrapped up in a blanket; of the calm before the storm of December and Christmas!

Welcome to Suzanne for joining us this month as our guest forger and she says
I launched a new scrapbook blog adventure at Susanne Stamps and Scraps, along with starting my You-Tube channel. 

I hope you will check out both.

Here is the kit I put together:

Falling Leaves

Here are the papers:
My choices came about from the fell of the inspirational kit by bring in the colors and similiar patterns. Lots of neutrals in this kit besides the Fall patterns should be fantastic to scrap my Fall pictures and more. 
Here are some close ups of the kit:
Die cuts, paper clips, sequins, wood veneer, die cuts, tags, stickers and more
Stamps, Words, chipboard flair, more die cuts and dazzles too

I'm excited to dig in and get playing with this kit, but first I need to see what the other girls have pulled together and a good place to start is over at Tara's blog  I'm excited to see how the inspiration moved her for her kit :) and if you get lost here is the full list

Here's the full hop list so that you don't miss any of the inspiration:
