April 2014 CKC--Traveling Man

Hello Friends!!
Today I'm sharing a layout that I made last year with my April 2014 CKC, it's actually the last layout I made with this kit. I love the color combinations with this kit and I think every layout I made with it is a favorite!

This layout was inspired by a sketch at Page Maps, I'm not sure when it was from but I think it was this year.
 
This layout is of my sweet husband Mr Gulley.

the bluish background is actually a bit of watercolor paper that I painted with blues and greens, I cut it up to add it to this layout. The title was all in green and blended somewhat into the background of the paper so I outlined it with a blank pen.

More layers and bits of embellishments.
 
I even added rub ons with a bit of bling to this layout!

April 2014 CKC--Stink Eye

Hello Friends!
Today I am sharing the next to the last layout from my April 2014 CKC...yes, no typos there, I did say 2014!

The inspiration for this layout came form a Page Maps sketch, I don't remember when the sketch was from but I think it was 2014.
 
This is a layout of me trying to give Mr Gulley the stink eye as he was taking a photo of me. Of course you can't give the stink eye without following up with a laugh and smile. This is a grid layout that I created on a homemade background paper. It's actually some book pages that I had and I used mod podge to glue them down to a piece of cardstock that I wasn't going to use.

I used lots of little embellishments on the layout along with stickers and cut outs.
 
There's an acetate piece under this cluster.

I love that I was able to use so many random bits of embellishment on this layout and make it look really good together!

Pocket Pages Today--March 2015 CKC

Hello Friends!!
 
Today I am sharing a pocket page layout that I made using my March 2015 Counterfeit Kit Challenge Kit.
 
Lots and lots of photos with just a bit of embellishment.

I love pocket pages where I don't have to add too many embellishments.

Lots of embellishments here.

Cousin photos.

More cousin photos with just a bit of embellishment.
 
This is the backside and as you can see there's very little embellishment here.

Maybe I will go back and add a few bits of embellishments here.

Another card with just a bit of extra embellishment here.

More cousins.

And still more cousins.

Treasured Moments--March 2015 CKC

Hello Friends!!
 
I'm sharing another layout that I made using my march 2015 Counterfeit Kit Challenge Kit.
I made a 2 page layout, I spent years not making any 2 pagers and I am making them more and more as I am remembering how much I love them!!
 
These are family reunion photos from last July, 2014.
 
 
I started with a sketch from Pagemaps May 2008.

I love that I was able to use so much ribbon with this kit, I have so much ribbon and I really need to use more of it up!

This is a bit of chipboard from a chipboard pack that matched the original CTMH paper pack that I selected to add to my kit, I just added the bird sticker and a little pearl for an eye.

I used a journal card and added a few other embellishments here.

There are even some bits of washi tape on this layout.

I used a couple of craft color doilies on this layout that I added to the layout.

Celebrate Family Time--March 2015 CKC

Hello Friends!!
 
Today I am sharing a layout I made with my March 2015 Counterfeit Kit Challenge kit.
The photo is of my Papaw Smith and his younger sister Aunt Baby Gal. I did shed a few tears when I made this layout since my Papaw just passed last month.
 
I used some scraps along with lots of embellishments that I added into my march kit.
 
I started with a sketch from Pagemaps April 2007
Of course I don't think my layout turned out exactly like the sketch but I think you can see it in the overall layout.
 
The Celebrate was part of a packet of embossed chipboard from CTMH that I added into my kt. I used a bit of blue ink to make the embossing stand out. I also add lots of bits and bobs to this cluster.

More bunches of randomness here. I did use some pop dots to add texture to the embellishments. I also added some rub ons to the upper left and lower right corners.

I even added some rub on stitching to the edge of the paper mat to the left and the top of the photo.

Pocket Pages--March 2015 CKC

Hello Friends!
 
Today I am sharing more pocket pages that I created using photos from a flight I took and of my Family Reunion in Enid, Mississippi using my March 2015 CKC.
 
The flight was kind of eventful, we had to sit on the tarmac for over an hour waiting for a summer storm to pass that caused tornados in other areas. Once the storm passed and we lifted off then we had to fly through some pretty powerful thunderclouds and winds. Not my favorite takeoff ever but once above the storm it wasn't a bad flight.
I did add a few pocket page card and a few additional stickers on this page.
 
I added a chipboard embellishment here that I cut in half.
 
More bits of embellishment along with cards.

Still more bits of embellishments.

Have I mentioned that I love looking at the clouds?

And finally some of the photos of my family reunion.

Hello Friends!
It's time for another challenge at
Today's challenge is anything WATER.
Over the last several weeks I have been scrapping lots of beach and lake photos so I thought I would use this challenge to share a very water heavy pocket page (front and back).

The photos are of my niece's girls as they were playing in Enid Lake, MS which is where my Mother lives, their Great Grand Mother.

I used a couple of the pocket page cards from CTMH that I added to my kit.

I embellished with lots of random bits, the Hello is a cut out from my Silhouette.

Lots of little leftovers here.

More random bits.
 
This is the back side, with more water photos.

A bit of washi tape and a few other bits.
 
Here are a few more pocket page cards from CTMH, I just added a few bits of scraps and even some rub ons.

I added some more rub ons to this one along with some stickers and some other random bits.

A little washi tape a few bits here.

April 2014 CKC--Believe

Hello Friends!!
Today I'm sharing another layout that I made last year using my April 2014 CKC.

The inspiration for this page came from Sketch #98 from the Creative Scrappers website.
 
This is a layout of my sweet Grandee Shani. I used tons of embellishments on this layout. The title on this one is a wood veneer.
 
That little metal bow has been in my stash for quite some time! Can you see the paisley acetate piece here? It's much more prominent in person.

Lots of random bits and pieces here.

It's April 2015 and I'm still using these cut apart words...but I have fewer now than when I put this kit together.
