Counterfeit Kit Challenge member March blog hop

Welcome to the March Counterfeit Kit Challenge member blog hop and it's hard to believe that it's almost the end of March and Easter is just around the corner. But my layout for this hop is perfect for this time of the year - pretty pinks and spring colours. I didn't even plan that when I made up my kit but I was making up my kit but was happy to find this happy coincidence when looking through my box for pretties for a pretty page.

Anyway, I am jumping ahead of myself. I'm at the end of the hop and hopefully, you find yourself here by way of Corina and I'm sure she shared something gorgeous with you. But if you are here direct, you might want to go back to the beginning of the hop at the Counterfeit blog and work your way through all the wonderful contributions so that you don't miss anything.

This is a layout for the Challenge #1 over at the Counterfeit blog (here) which was to use all pictures, no journalling. This was more difficult for me than I anticipated as every photo I picked up had stuff to say about it. I wondered about cheating and coming up with some hidden writing but in the end just went with a baby photo that could stand alone as long as my title said a little something ;-) so a minor cheat. I will no doubt scrap this photo again as there is definitely journalling to say but I will leave this for another day.

March kit, Disconnected, layout #4

Thanks for dropping by and make sure you let me know you were here and tell me: Do you like to make pages with no journalling or are you more like me and feel the need to write something, even if it's just a few words?

Here's the full blog hop list if you have missed some of the blogs:-

  1. Such a pretty layout Lisa, love the use of the doilies. No journaling required - the picture tells the story :)

  2. With a photo like that its more than ok to scrap it twice ... If not more :)

    I journal on pretty much most of my layouts, but I'm ok with letting the photo do the talking

  3. I love your layout. The papers, doilies, stickers, buttons, everything. Awesome job on the details. I can go either way with journalling. If I'm scrapping a photo for the second time (as I did for this hop) I don't do as much journaling. Depends on the pic and my mood at the moment lol.

  4. Love, love love this! So, so pretty.. Now I just have to find time to scrap lift it. TFS

  5. I did struggle a bit with no words... but I like the outcome! Great page for you by the way....fabulous picture!

  6. Lisa I love all the extras on your layout. I am with you on feeling like I need to journal on a layout somewhere, but I also like layouts with just a title so I journal on the back of them. :)
