CKCB Challenge

A few days ago, the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog gave us this challenge:

Challenge # 3: Turn it on it's ear: Pick any of the sketches from Sketch Support and rotate it before you use it for a card or layout. You will get a fresh new look this way, but still have the ease of the sketch giving you the blueprints of what to do. So awesome!
I took this sketch from Sketch Support:

And turned it sideways to come up with this page:

I also used a challenge from My Scrapbook Nook's Virtual Crop this past weekend, "#2-This bud of love, by summer's ripening breath-pick 7 different flowers for your layout", and here is a close up of the flowers:

The journaling reads, "It is always so hard to get the four of you together and smiling for a photo.Out of lots of shots, this one was the best Nicole was able to get. Crazy kids!"

Products I used:
The background paper was Pink Paislee Vintage Moon, and the back side of one of the Echo Park Walk In The Park papers, sheer aqua ribbon, the brown border was from the Colorbok Flea Market Punch Out Pad, the title was one of the K&Co rub-ons from the booklet I included in my August kits, The flowers are Primas, Making Memories, and The Paper Studio. All supplies used are from my August Counterfeit Kits (which you can see HERE).


  1. Great layout - I like the shot where not everyone is "cooperating".

  2. Great page! Love the flowers :)

  3. I love the sweet simple design of this page! Great take on the challenge!

  4. Lovely colours and a great take on the sketch!

  5. I adore these colours and that is such a brilliant photo - the kids' energy is bubbling out of the page!

  6. wow! this is amazing. Love the colors and the simplicity. yum!!!!! xoxo

  7. love it! such great colours. I need to get going with this challenge because I love sketches and this one here is great!
