Making the Most of Your Memorabilia and Ephemera

Today's challenge at the Counterfeit Kit challenge blog is:" Ephemera Encapsulated"

Choose a little bit of everyday life to incorporate into a project this month. Use it on a layout, in a mini-book or add it to an off the page project!

For this challenge, I chose to use a piece of artwork that my son had made for me in school a few years ago. I had a photo from that Halloween that I had not scrapped, either. I was really quite excited to find this sweet little drawing/picture that my son had made in 2009. It's so funny to me, since he wanted to "be George Strait" for Halloween, and now he won't even listen to country music. Just a sweet capture of that moment in our lives. I love it!

Be sure to link up with the Counterfeit Kit challenge (link in my sidebar) and show us how you incorporate memorabilia and ephemera!

April CKC kit..."Secret Garden"

Welcome everyone! And welcome spring! Spring is my favorite season, and always has been, with the blooming trees, the lighter, longer days, and the mad hustle and bustle of the end of the school year.So, I loved it when we were given a very flower heavy kit to be inspired by. And, let me tell you, these kits can be turned into quite a stash busting extravaganza!
The kit we were given to be inspired by this month is:

Here is the kit that I made , using this kit for inspiration:

And I made a video, showing my choices, and why I selected them from my stash:

C'est Magnifique had several add ons, and I did a pretty good job of using my kit last month, so I went ahead and "counterfeited" the add on kits as well. Here is their mixed media kit:
