Get In Shape!

At least, that is the challenge that was given to us by the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog. As soon as I saw that challenge, I thought of the label shaped die-cut paper that I had in my June main kit! I was inspired by another DT member to try pink and kraft together, and then I had a jumping off point.

Here Is My Layout:
 I used the Making Memories Artisan Love notes Die Cut paper,  a couple of labels from the Making Memories border and tag stickers, mounted on cardstock scraps, a strip of reddish pink cardstock and a strip of scalloped patterned paper from my scraps, kraft cardstock from my stash, and then I had an idea that I had seen and wanted to try for a while, to make a mini banner from Tim Holtz tickets. I used some hand-dyed shabby seam binding, the tickets (which I had inked with Tattered Rose Distress Inks), and various bits and bobs from my June kit and May kit-a tiny felt "Bloomer", a few pink rhinestones, a couple of tiny flowers and ribbon roses, and a couple of hammered Making Memories brads from my stash.
