It's Time for the Master Forger's Blog Hop!

Can you believe that the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog has been going strong for 6 months already? I am so glad that you are joining us for our blog hop this month, and if you make it all the way to the end of this post, I have a giveaway! Here is the challenge we were given for the blog hop:


Make a page or mini album all about You with at least one "I" statement on it.
My Layout:


I used both of my June kits for this one, along with a sketch from Sketch Inspirations (see side bar for link). The background paper is a sheet of Mango Frost DCWV, the light blue print is Making Memories, and I used the light aqua Bazzill Bling for the circle (cut out by my Cricut), most of the stickers are by Sticko from my Summer add-On, with the exception of the Thicker letters from my Main kit and the chipboard KI stick on label, on which I used one of the Hampton Arts stamps from my Summer kit for the word "Bliss"-since the chipboard was coated, I stamped it with black StaZon ink.I also used a yellow brad from my main kit, and a tag from my May kit leftovers. All in all, I am pretty happy with the way this layout turned out, and it brought back a lovely memory for me!
Here are close ups of the details:

Now for the giveaway!
Here is the kit that I am giving away, which I have named "Summer Adventures":

I included in this kit:  yummy Basic Grey Lime Rickey and Marakech papers, Sassafrass Lass Bungle Jungle, a sheet of double sided Heidi Swapp travel paper, a sheet of striped DCWV from the Elementary School Stack, dark red paper from another stack, and Navy, Orange, Yellow, and Kraft cardstock (most is Coredinations Color Core). Embellies included are: Basic Grey letter stickers, a variety of buttons, mostly Jenni Bowlin and Basic Grey, several Prima flowers, spring green grosgrain ribbon, orange sheer ribbon, teal paper raffia, a couple of plastic red flowers by American Crafts, a couple of Tim Holtz journaling tickets, a couple of larger Colorbok Destinations journaling cards, a chipboard bookplate, a chipboard tag from We R Memory Keepers, a couple of chipboard flowers from KI Memories, 2 wooden heart shapes, a white corrugated circle, a red die cut tag, and a blue lollipop flower handmade for you by me! I think you could use this kit for all kinds of fun scrappy pages of your summer adventures!!

  1. nice take on the "I" statement. Such a great summery feel to the whole layout, from the colours through to the papers through to your pretty painted toe-nails! And the sparkly Thickers are a great final touch.
