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.

Use Your Stuff Challenge #181

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).
I used my March 2015 Counterfeit Kit Challenge Kit
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.

April 2014 CKC--Moments that Matter

Hello Friends!
Today I'm sharing a layout that I made in April 2014 using my Counterfeit Kit Challenge Kit.

The inspiration for this 2 page layout came from CTMH Make it from the Heart Vol.1.
Sorry the editing isn't the best for this layout but this is the month that I quite literally dumped all my photos from my disc into the great beyond. Thankfully I was able to resurrect them but unfortunately I wasn't able to edit them. These are photos from our trip to Destin, Florida in 2013.

I cut the circle mat on my silhouette and used brads, blare, cork and some random stickers to fill the holes. The also used a family wood veneer here.

The doily with is a wood veneer. I used a little chipboard piece that I had taken the center piece out of to be a frame around the photo on the top.

I used lots and lots of photos on this layout.

The Kraft color border here is actually a bit from CTMH that has adhesive on the back already. I bought a package of those years ago and I still have tons and tons left.

May You Always Walk in Sunshine--March 2015 CKC

Hello friends!
Today I am sharing another layout from my March 2015 Counterfeit Kit Challenge Kit.
The layout is of my sister.
We were on the beach at Enid Lake Mississippi enjoying the sun, sand and water.
I was inspired to make the layout using a sketch from Pagemaps December 2007.
I added a strip of pearls along the top of the layout and as you can also see I added a border strip along the top of the photo.

I added a wood veneer frame here on top of a bit of a 6x6 paper from one of the paper pads I pulled into my kit.

Here I added several bits of scraps along with a coaster board ribbon embellishment that I cut into and gave a banner tail to match the scraps.

I added a bit of a doily here along with a heart sticker, a flair and a resin piece.

Some Where Over America--March 2015 CKC

Hello Friends!
I'm sharing another layout I made using my March 2015 counterfeit Kit Challenge Kit.
The background page is actually one that came with a pocket page kit that I bought from my CTMH dealer. It is double sided and the front is intended for the fist page of an album and the back side is made up to be a pocket page spread.

The once upon a time was already on the page and I added the other words.

I also added a few more bits to identify that the photos were from July on 2014.

The resin bits are from the matching embellishments options from CTMH and I just added a few pocket page cards here.

I layered up some pocket page cards along with the photo on the backside to complete this layout.

The hearts are stickers that I added in.

More letter stickers here.

The chipboard piece is from the matching embellishment pieces.
