Alligator Tracks--February 2015 CKC

Hello Friends!!
Today I'm sharing another layout with my February 2015 CKC kit. I really thought I was done with that kit and even pulled it apart to put away. In the process of sorting through it all I realized I had way too much left to put it away so I made some more layouts.
These are photos from our trip to Florida in 2013.
I was inspired to create this layout by a Pagemaps sketch from August 2008.

I layered up several embellsihments here.

Used 2 different alphas to create the title.

I even layered up some of the pocket cards from a CTMH set.

Another Feb 2015 CKC Pocket Page

Hello Friends!!

You might remember that I said I had enough paper and embellishments in my February CKC kit to continue making layout and that's exactly what I did...
I made more layouts.....

The background paper is actually one that came with a set of pocket page cards from CTMH. I just layered up some photos and other embellishments to finish it off.

This flare has been in the last couple of its.

The title was already on the paper.

I cut the wood veneer doily in half and used part of it here.

The other side of the paper had what looked like pocket page cards, I just did my own thing with it though.

I layered up some stickers.

A few little scraps of paper, the leftover part of a wood veneer pocket card and a sticker add some extra texture to the page.

Those little tile stickers had to be stuck down to red line tape before they could be adhered down because the adhesive was pretty much gone.

I used my exacto knife to cut the off we go tag out to fit over the pic and then added a bit of border strip to the bottom of the photo.

March 2015 CKC

Hello friends!!
Today I'm sharing my March 2015 Counterfeit Kit Challenge kit.
If you've never played along over at the CKC blog head over they and check it all out!
I started off with a paper pack from CTMH called Balloon ride along with the pocket page cards that are available.

I just kept pulling stuff from my stash including lots of chipboard, ribbon and some random orange bits from my orange bin.
I added in some wood veneer, tags, flair, pearls, and doilies.

I added in lots of additional paper and some fun random embellishments.
Here's the video of all the kit contents. Sorry I sound so dull in this video....family issues were going on that were making me sad!

February 2015 CKC--Pocket Pages

Hello Friends!!
I'm sharing more pocket pages from our trip to Florida in 2013.
I've scrapped a page about our pizza night, my nieces girls had never had home made pizza before and they thought it was the best thing ever to make it and bake it and eat it!!

It rained one evening so we stayed in. We had lots of fun doing all sorts of random stuff including making bead bracelets.

My niece's oldest daughter had her 6th birthday while we were there and we had a party for her with lots of gifts.

More random stickers and embellishments.

The trip home took only 2 days. Grumpy likes to MOVE IT when he goes home and doesn't like to stop too much.

We still had plenty of pool time at the hotel we stopped at.
That's it for my February kit, although I still think I have enough stuff left over to make even more layouts.

February 2015 CKC--Pocket Pages

Hello Friends!!
I'm sharing more pocket pages from our trip to Florida in 2013. These pages actually show photos of our arrival in Florida and some of our beach days.
I was able to use up tons of partially opened packages of stickers and embellishments from my beach file on these pages.

I also used lots of the CTMH cards that I had added into my February CKC kit.

Love all the pics that are on these pages.

That beach all tag has actually been in my stash for about 10 years I think.

I didn't take much embellishment on these photos since the photos are so fun!

I love, love, love the beach in Destin, Florida. I would move there and live on the beach if I could take my entire family with me and be crazy rich to support us all!!
So right...we know that's not going to happen!!

February 2015 CKC--Pocket Pages

Hello Friends!
I'm sharing 3 more pocket page layouts from my February 2015 CKC.
These photos are from out trip to Florida in 2013.
We left Lubbock, Texas on a Thursday morning and arrived in Destin, Florida on Saturday afternoon. We could have made it in 2 days but when you travel with short people the longer you can take the better.

Our first day in the car was only about 6 hours, the rest of the day we spent in the hotel pool.

Second day of traveling was about 8 hours and we spent the biggest part of the evening and night in the hotel pool. Security actually had to come tell us to get out of the pool the second night around midnight.
I'm sure every tourist who has ever driven to Florida has stopped at this rest area!
Lots of random photos from the trip, my 2 grandees were amazing travelers on this trip!!

I love that I was able to use up so many of those random stickers that I have been collecting for years.

Use Your Stuff Challenge#176 Monochromatic

Hello Friends!!!
It's time for another challenge over at the Use Your Stuff Challenge Blog
This week the challenge is to go monochromatic. I didn't really have any papers pulled that were solely monochromatic for this Challenge. So what I did was base my layout on the background piece of paper with the blue and green combination...and well...blue and green are part of the same color family...right?!?!?!

Here's the layout.
It's based on a sketch from the Pagemaps blog
It's from February 2008.

I pulled some glitter washi tape, used up some old K & Co glitter words, and some chipboard stickers.

I clustered a sand dollar sticker with the chipboard shell embellie and used a phrase that I printed from pinterest.

I cut a strip of the gold dot washi to fit down one side and for this small cluster I used a couple of different fonts along with a square shell sticker and a sand dollar chipboard embellie.

Finally a couple more sticker and bits of bling finish this page off.
I hope you will join us over at the Use Your Stuff Challenge Blog!!!

February 2015 CKC--Pocket Pages

Hello Friends!!
Today I'm sharing some of the pocketed pages I made using a combination of my February 2015 CKC kit and the CTMH travel themed cards for pocketed pages.
We took a road trip to Florida during the summer of 2013 with our 2 older grandee's. These are photos from that trip.

I pulled in lots of beach stickers to use on these pages.

You may have seen some of these photos before since I have scrapped some of them already.

I love how many photos I can get on these pocket pages.

Love too all the embellishments I can use.

Here is the final page for this share, I have several more shares coming up of all the pocket pages I got done.
So come back again to check them all out!

February 2015 CKC--Cigar Smokin Man

Hello Friends!!
I am sharing another layout from my February 2015 CKC kit. I'm getting pretty close to the end of the pattern paper but I had tons of scraps and this layout was a fabulous way to use tons of those scraps.
I was inspired to created this layout by
 Sketches for Scrapbooking 1 page sketches Volume 1 by Allison Davis--3 photo layout 
I love using multiple fonts for a title.

I finally cut into that beautiful grey and blue and brown paper.

These grey letters really felt at home here on this layout.

Can you find the other cork pieces I added into this layout?
