February Counterfeit Kit Challenge member blog hop

Welcome this Monday morning to the Counterfeit Kit Challenge member blog hop. Happy to see you here.

Hopefully, you've arrived via Cindy and if you've dropped in directly, you can get to the beginning of the blog back at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog so that you don't miss anything along the way.

I decided to choose the second challenge for the hop - to create an angled background for my project. And with that, I managed to create all three challenges this month which is something I haven't managed for a long time.

We had the ugly sweater inspiration (here) and then the ten minute card challenge (here). It felt really good to get all of the prompts completed and to really make the most of the inspiration offered up by the blog and the team. Love this group of creative girls!

Anyway, here's my angled background layout and this was really fun to make even if it didn't turn out quite as I had planned in my head. This is a really good design concept when your kit is coming to an end and you only have some scraps. I tried not to overthink it and just created the page as I usually would. One silly photo and some minimal embellies means that the background is still a main feature on the page.

This is layout #9 from my February kit, Tender.




I'm the end of the hop today but here's the full list in case you got lost along the way.
