Hopefully, you've reached me via Cindy after working your way through the all the participants. If not, you can hop back to the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog (here) so that you can start right at the beginning and not miss a thing!
This month we were challenged with the following prompts:
Challenge #1: One Layer Challenge: No paper layering allowed - just embellishments.
Challenge #2: Sketch Challenge: Stretch this card sketch to suit you.
Challenge #3: Vellum: Incorporate vellum into your project.
Now challenge 1 is just mean for a layering girl like me *wink*, so I've decided to incorporate two challenges in one and use the sketch from challenge #2 to make a layout using vellum à la challenge #3 - one of my all time favourite scrappy products. Win-win.
If you look closely at my layout, the original sketch IS there! I've got the four vertical blocks as a starter. Then I've replaced the chevrons with two doily elements, dropping one. Then I've reinterpreted the horizontal strips with lace and wound twine. I'll be adding journalling to give my niece a few words of advice after her first day of school.
There were a few last minute changes To the blog hop list and therefore, I'm linking up to not one, but two blogs! First up is newcomer Binty over at her blog here and then there's the prolific Julene (here). Make sure you stop by at both their blogs and say hello. And here's the full list in case you get lost along the way.
