Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog Hop

This is the last stop on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog hop!  Thanks for joining us.  Today's layout is supposed to be about "I"...or me.  I must warn you, this layout is a REAL STRETCH!  I was on QUITE a roll with my kit this month, and used all of it up without ever even taking a photo of the kit in the first place!  Sadly, I used it up without realizing that I never did the blog hop mini challenge with it either!  (I got so much scrapping done this month, that I even went back to finish up kits from earlier this year!!!)  I did create 9 double page layouts with my June Counterfeit Kit, so I had to go back and choose one that was about I don't scrap much about myself (which is why Bethany chose this challenge...duh, Meridy) so finding a layout about me, that I made using my kit this month, was a REAL stretch...but here goes!

"I MADE" these potato sacks...

This layout is about the potato sacks that I made last year for potato sack races at my son's first birthday party (no he didn't race, the older kids did).  I sewed 6 of them out of burlap and stamped the words "Sack of Potatoes" on them.  I was so proud of my potato sacks, that I took them to Texas for our family reunion last May so the kids could race there too.  The family reunion races are in this layout.  The journaling is about how I made the potato I'm in there a little bit!

Potato sacks that "I" made...

Well, I warned you that it was a stretch!  Lesson month I need to do the blog hop challenge BEFORE I finish off my Counterfeit Kit!

Thanks for joining us this month.  I can't wait to see tomorrow's blog hop participants and their work!!!!
