Counterfeit Layout

The first layout made with this months kit, I hadn't realised how much other stuff I had going on this month!
The background paper and the large ticket are from Papermania and a selection of washi tape stripes.
The photo was taken after the school bazaar last Christmas,
following some face painting antics.
Journaling needs to be completed

Counterfeit Kit July - Guest Designer

I was incredibly honoured to receive an email asking me to be this month guest designer on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge. Since discovering the CKCB my scrapbooking has increased and become so much easier, so its lovely to be included and give a little back.

The July kit has been revealed as the Confidence Kit by Scrapbooking From The Inside Out and is pictured below.
I was a little hesitant when I first saw it as it reminded me of Christmas colours but also the geometricness (if there is such a word!) and the darkness of some of the papers were not things I would naturally pick.
This is my version I have used a slightly brighter green than the kit and have tried to keep the geometric patterns but have used slightly lighter patterns and colours.
 I have used my Silhouette to cut some polaroid frames and project life style journaling card.
Feel I have picked similar colours and the same pattern selection. 
Papers are Jillibean Soup, Do Crafts, MME and a few without names.
 Selection of Thickers and other letters
Some wooden hearts, rub ons and washi tape, I have another reel of green washi somewhere which I will be adding once I have cleared my craft table!

For some Fantastic inspiration hop along to see the rest of the teams take on the kit, the top one is me!

Guest Designer:  Heidi

Counterfeit Master Forger Blog Hop

Welcome to the CKCB members Blog Hop,
it's great to meet you if you haven't stopped by before.
If you are on the hop you should have arrived from Jemma's blog
This month's challenge was to take inspiration from the CKCB Design Team's Blogs and come up with a layout.
I liked this layout created by Angela, I especially liked the circles and the way it highlighted the photo.
I chose one of my favourite pictures of my son taken at Colchester Zoo when he was 3 as the layout seems to need a strong photo as the bold patterns could be overwhelming.

Thanks for stopping by and now you should hop over to Lesley's Blog and see her take on the challenge.
The full blog hop list on CKCB so if you get lost along the way, head over there to find your way back onto the hop.
Don't forget to leave me a comment to let me know you were here and happy hopping!"

Have I got scrap for you Challenge

The Challenge set on the UKS forum by Niki was to use some very bold paper that you have been reluctant to use due to its large print.
I chose Crate Paper - Paper Heart Collection.
As well as using the paper as a background to the photo I also cut out some of the flowers to embellish the design as well as die cutting the Title out of the bold paper.
I was very surprised when such a bold design lent itself to a New Baby Layout.

It's not quite Disney but I like it!

Well after thinking I would use my Counterfeit kit for Disney photos
I haven't used any so far.
 I am however very happy with the two pages I have completed.
The first one is my 2 beautiful girls the photo was a quick snap on my mobile phone
which  I adjusted with Instagram. 

The second page uses Papermania All Aboard paper and some East of India stickers.
The photo was taken during a family day trip to London we are standing on the Millennium Bridge.

Lovely combination of colours think I may be scrapping some
