1st Christmas Decoration Up LO for a Counterfeit Kit Challenge

 Good morning and welcome to the blog. Today is sketch day challenge over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog. Misty is in charge this month and has provided us with a sketch that she created herself.

Master Forger Misty back with our monthly sketch challenge. I create sketches and offer them as freebies over on my blog. I chose this sketch from Feb '22 as our design to work with this month. I liked the patterns and shapes. I hope you can take this sketch in whatever direction works for you, from literal to very interpreted.

I enjoyed playing with the sketch and so glad to get a cut file used to from my kit:
I moved the title to the bottom of the layout to work better for me. As this is also a LOAD524 layout I used Reds and Greens for the technical prompt today of complimentary colors. 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.

Today's Adventure LO for Sketch N Scrap challenge

Good Morning and welcome. Here we are in the middle of May, we have been having some wet weather, lots of rain. Seasonal temps though. We got a fun challenge layout over at Sketch N Scrap for the day. This sketch was created by Lori 

Super fun sketch it is! This is what I created with it:
Some stenciling and I added 2 strips of paper vs the one on the sketch. This is one side of a double page layout that I'm creating about one of the highlights of a walking tour I took in Nassau, Bahamas during a cruise in February. 

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 - May 2024 Kit Reveal - Homebody

Welcome to my blog and the 1st of May! It's National Scrapping Month, woohoo! Perfect time for a new inspiration for us over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge kit to challenge us to look through our own stash and choose a kit to play with. 1st you should have arrived here from Tara's Blog I'm looking forward to checking out her kit and see what inspired her. We are thrilled to have Alison Day join us as Guest Forger, I know her from association with LOAD so I see her creations atleast 3 times a year if not more.
You can find Alison on her social media: Blog: or on her YouTube:

Our host this month is Master Forger Misty here to bring you our activities for the month of May. Don't forget that May celebrates interNational Scrapbook Day (aka iNSD) as well. So there will be extra fun happening over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog! Stay tuned for that.

Now, let's go ahead and dive into this month's kit inspiration. I've chosen the Timeless kit from a company called DLS DesignIf this kit doesn't sound familiar, there is a good reason for that. This kit is offered by a kit company in the Netherlands. Since you are unlikely to have any of these items, you will really have to put those counterfeit skills to use this month!

 When I 1st saw the kit I thought right away of using PinkFresh Studios for my kit. Here is my kit for May:


My Papers:
I chose a variety of PinkFresh Studio's papers and some from some paper pads too. 

Alphas, I brought in alot of choices this month
Some fun cutfiles if I don't bring them in I won't use them and that is a goal for me this year is to get ones I have cut used. Some sequins and flair too
The embellishments I tend to grab alot so I have choices there too. I'm playing with LOAD this month so it's best to have things on hand. That's it, that's my kit and I plan to have fun with it all month. 
Thanks for stopping by today to my little corner of the world. I'm the end of the hop this month, if you get lost along the way the blog list is below. We look forward to seeing what you come up with for your kit this month at the CKC
