Season of Change LO for Sketch N Scrap challenge

 Good morning and welcome :) can you believe we are 1/2 way through October already! Time sure is flying lately. We got a fun challenge over at Sketch N Scrap for the day. This sketch was created by Lori

Isn't this a great layering sketch! This is what I created:
I decided to scrap some Fall photos with this sketch and chose my Winterberry Holly bush. Using my current counterfeit kit Harvest Happy I was able to show off the red berries on the green monochromatic layout that was the prompt for the LOAD that day that I made the layout.

Nature Lover LO for the Counterfeit Kit Challenge #1

 Good Morning and welcome :) Here's the 1st challenge of the month over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog. Leslie is the host this month and she has this to say for this 1st challenge:

 Somewhat Sketchy

ACOT Becky Fleck September 1 Weekly Sketch Challenge. Link:

Feel free to flip, flop, twist, turn, or otherwise make it your own! I see 2 cluster areas, lots of layering behind the photos, and 2 somewhat tiny photos.
This is the layout I created with the sketch

I enjoyed digging into my current kit Harvest Happy and choosing the papers for the layout. This layout is also my LOAD for Day 11 so the prompt was what things you baby or treat with extra attention and when I looked through my current prints and seen these I knew this was the story to tell :) the technique was to use pastel colors and I was able to bring those in through the fabric paper in my kit and used it for paper layers. 

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.

 Here's my kit for October:

Harvest Happy

I was focused on the 49 and Market papers in the kit and I had just got the Curators Meadow kit and knew this would be the base of my kit and a good way to mellow down the papers for the beauty of the fall season in my photos.
The papers:
The 49 and Market papers are in the top row. I added CTMH papers to my kit to give a bit more color to the kit, a Simple Stories paper as well as a Vicki Boutin Fermwood paper too

My Fall accent came in from the stickers and the die cuts from the Simple Stories collection and I want to achieve finishing this collection off 
I brought in the fabric paper they had with some fabric paper I have
Finished it off with a gold alpha, word foam stickers and some laser cuts plus some die cuts. I've got lots to scrap from the summer so this should work out very well.
That's it I'm finishing off this month's blog hop and if you started with me 1st then here's the hop list so you can go start at the beginning
