Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog Layout


I am really enjoying my time with the Counterfeit Kit Challenge folks this month. As a guest designer I was invited to share a layout that I made with my kit. The challenge was to scraplift a Shimelle sketch. Since I have loved Shimelle for a LONG time I was so excited about this.

I scraplifted Sketch #32.

And here is my kit that I am working with (details in my last blog post):

This layout, while it could be simply about my daughter's staging rehearsal, is about the life lessons my girls have learned through dance. While watching her rehearsal, I realized how many lessons she had been taught outside of the physical movement of dance. She learned how to listen and take instruction. How to work as a team with other dancers in her class. How to memorize and take what she learned and actually apply it. So many amazing life lessons in this thing called dance...

I used the Pink Paislee Memorandum paper for the background and then a variety of cards and papers from the kit. I used some of the gold rubons, some of the floral washi, a clip bow and the cork hearts (felt like they spoke theater stage) to embellish. I loved using up a couple of those OLD Luxe Designs label stickers-those have been in my stash for forever. I used the Minc card (I don't own the Minc machine but often buy the products to use as they are) as my title, I couldn't think of a better one myself for the concept of the page.

Thanks you so much for checking out my page. I will post more projects that I complete with this kit so stay tuned!

Happy Scrapping!
