Counterfeit Kit Challenge #2: Take 6

Welcome! After a bit of a crafty hiatus, I have had the chance to do a little crafting this month, and one of the first things that I did with my Counterfeit Kit for this month was to make a project for challenge #2/Take 6:
June is the sixth month of the year, so we're going to celebrate that by using six of something on a project.  It's your choice: you can try six patterned papers, six die-cuts, six buttons, etc.  Maybe you'd like to try adding six photos to your layout or even a six-letter title.  Just be sure to play along by including six of something!

I was excited to use this kit, since I love the pretty colors and patterns. I knew that the Crate Paper Craft Market wood veneer hoops would work perfectly with the story of this page, all about the kids on the 8th grade trip learning how to play some very simple games that the pilgrim children played when we visited Colonial Williamsburg. Ifollowed the challenge by using 6 wood veneer pieces, 6 stickers from the rose gold sticker sheet, and 6 pieces from the die cut pack. What a great way to use up some stash!

June 2017 Counterfeit Kit Challenge Kit...Summer Dreams

Good morning! It's so hard to believe that it's already June! These last couple of months have just whizzed by in a blur, with my oldest daughter's high school graduation, and all of the busyness that goes along with that. But I'm excited to do a little crafting, and our June kits will be the perfect little jumpstart to my mojo. This month, we are taking inspiration from the May Felicity Jane kits:
I love the colors and feminine feel to the Felicity Jane kits!  As I was pulling supplies for my kit, "Summer Dreams" from my stash, I took inspiration from the soft pinks and rose golds, swapping the soft blue for just a bit of mint green, and adding some bows and awesome paper clips into the mix.
