April Challenge on CKCB!

We had a great sketch challenge for this month on Counterfeit Kit Challenge from Pretty Little Studio (sketch 28) .

I thought it was high time I did a layout of my friend Pam.  We met eons ago through Close to My Heart (I used to be a consultant) and we have been scrappy friends ever since.  (She does, however, keep moving farther away from me...I wonder if she is trying to tell me something?  LOL)

When Pam came for a visit last year, we had a great time decorating cupcakes, doing card challenges, visiting the zoo and eating bacon sundaes (don't knock it till you've tried it).  I have not done the journaling yet...I want it to be perfect!

I so love this little banner.  I had fun layering things on it.  :)

Well, look at me and all of my fun layers!  Once I got going, I just couldn't stop. 

Have fun with the sketch!  And be sure to show me what you make!

It is Counterfeit Kit Time

We have a very fun, fresh kit that we are counterfeiting this month!  It is WAY out of the box for me, but I really think it will be fun!

Head on over to Counterfeit Kit Challenge to see what we are up to and check out the kit!

Now, on to the fun stuff!  Our fabulous Design Team and our incredible Guest Designer have created wonderful kits for this month!  Check them out and give them some love please (go to CKC Blog to see the complete list of the hop).

My kit this month is based off of the Christy Thomlinson Kit featured.  I was struck by the vibrant colors and fun combinations of patterns.

Most of my paper is from various Echo Park Kits.  I tried to stick fairly closely to the overall feel, scale and colors of the papers.

I love using interesting flowers, so I went with a combination of Prima's and some that I made for a previous kit.

I was thrilled to throw in some of the shapes I cut out of my scraps a few months ago.  (The woodgrain butterfly is my favorite!)

I have been facinated with Washi Tape, so I threw some of that in to play with and of course, had to have my buttons!

I loved the die cuts for this kit, but was short on time to recreate them.  I did, however, just purchase some great K&Co die cuts that look like they will fill the gap nicely.

So that's my kit!  I am amazed every monthh at how much fun it is to pull my own kits...and how much I love them when they are all pulled together!

Now head on over to see what Meridy has created!
