Love Notes

You might remember that my Counterfeit Kit Challenge February kit, Record, was not as romantic as you might have come to expect from me ;-) That's because I made up a Valentine page kit and I have to say that I really enjoyed making it up and really going to town with all that pink just for a change *wink*!

I started out back to front really and picked out the most adorable Page Maps sketch from their January designs that just had my name all over it. Who could resist that gorgeous banner design with so many photos and pretty things?

And then I made up my kit, filling it up with pretty papers, twine, Helen's beautiful hand-made flowers, TH tape and some October Afternoon travel themed products as I had a few ideas about one or two other pages I wanted to make. I think it's super cute and pretty and "Love Notes" seemed to be the perfect name.

And this is the layout I made on Valentine's Day for my LOAD prompt, "Love lasts". I'm not sure I've made a layout about the love of all our lives, Blossom, so today was the day. I stuck pretty faithfully to the sketch because I loved it so much but the result is quite bulky so I might need to do something about the pins. But I love the result. The sketch and page kit worked so well together. I added the pins which I had forgotten to put in the kit and a couple of Prima page pebbles.

The next day brought the prompt "Songs of days gone by" and through a round about way, my inspiration for my layout came from the Carole King album, Tapestry, that I listened to all the time during the summer of '84. 

And one more layout from the kit for which I added a single sheet of cardstock and some extra twine. Simple and sweet. I've scrapped this photo before but this was another take on the story of my baby sister arriving in my life. I didn't really follow the prompt for this day but it's still a story from the past so I'm on track!

I know I've said it here on my blog just earlier this week, but the combination of LOAD and the Counterfeit Kit Challenge is working so well - how did I do it before???


  1. Great sketch, beautiful kit!! And truly wonderful pages have come out of it!

  2. What a gorgeous photo! Is that your Mum looking all glamorously 70's then?

    I love that Pagemaps sketch and really want to have a go at it myself - I'll be lucky if it turns out half as nicely as this one. Beautiful!

  3. That is a fab sketch you've chosen, and all these pages rock. That Carol King song reminds me of watching Gilmore Girls (It's their theme song) with my daughter. I think I need a page. Thanks for your inspiration.
