Counterfeit Kit Chellenge Design Team Blog Hop July 2011

Thank you for joining us on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Master Forger Blog Hop.  This is the last stop on the hop today, I hope you picked up some inspiration and ideas about how to use up your flower stash (if you are anything like me, it is rather large).  This month's challenge was to use flowers in a creative way.  I decided to use flowers and felt pieces that were in my "Liberty Crossing" Add-On Kit.  I used lots of red, white, and blue flowers in various sizes, a few felt stars, and some brads to create these "firework" embellishments.  When I use them on a layout, I intend on creating the little "light trails" with the silver pipe cleaners that I also included in my Counterfeit Kit.  Thank you so much for playing!

I also wanted to share the 2 layouts I made with my "Liberty Crossing" Add-On Kit.

5 Guys Burgers and Fries opened in town this past we had to try it out...YUMMY!!!!

All 4 cousins playing in the wagon...the colors just happened to match the Liberty Crossing Add-On
Which brings my total for July to 8-double page layouts using my July Counterfeit Kit and Add-Ons!   I also have photos pulled to create about 3 more double page layouts!  So all in all, July was a productive month!

Layouts with July Counterfeit Kit

I finished up 2 layouts last night.  Both from my July Counterfeit Kit.

My favorite part of this layout was part of the title...the layout is about the beaded necklace that my daughter made, so I used some of the "alphabet" beads to spell "homemade" in my title!

This is the other layout I created last night...

Thanks for looking :)

Double Layout from Sketchy Thursdays

I used a sketch from a couple of weeks ago from Sketchy Thursdays for this layout.  And of course my Counterfeit Kit from July 2011.

Shimelle's Sketch of the Week, july 6th, 2011

I recently started reading Shimelle's blog, I love it!  I decided to play along with her sketch of the week this week.  Although her sketch was only one page, I created a two-page layout, I just improvised the second page. I used some of my July Counterfeit Kit on this one too!

Here is Shimelle's original sketch.

The left side of the layout still works as a single page too...
