Gallery Standout Challenge

Yesterday, the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog gave us these instructions :

Mini Challenge #3: Gallery Standout Challenge
Go forth and find a gallery for inspiration and use it to create a project. Be sure to post a link to your inspiration as well as a photo of your project so we can appreciate YOU!
 My Inspiration:I found this page page by "winks" on 2 Peas HERE, and it really caught my eye. It is a little different than my usual style, but the simplicity of it is just striking!
My Page:
 A Close Up Of The Title:
While I loved the summer theme of the original page, I didn't have the same beautiful photo, so I improvised with what I had. I used kraft cardstock from my July kit, along with the red/cream polka dot strips by Cosmo Cricket, added in a scrap of Nook And Pantry Basic Grey patterned paper(the lacey turquoice and cream print), and a scrap of turqouise cardstock, which I punched with my tab punch. All journaling was done with a white gel pen by American Crafts, and the title was a We R Memory Keepers journaling spot, to which I added red gems from my July kit for the holly berries, red Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type stickers from my "Sweet Freedom" kit, and black Doodlebug rub-on letters.
I hope you play along with us, I love to see what inspires YOU!


  1. I love this clean layout - great choice and great interpretation!

  2. great job on choosing something a little out of your normal style - this is a fantastic lift/take of the original. I love it!

  3. Love it - a Christmas page in July - great counterfeiting!

  4. I don't know about you, but my holiday photos are always the hardest for me to scrap. So I love that you made this wok for you and used a Christmas page. Great layout!


Thank you for your comments, they make my day!
