You should have reached me via the adorable Janine but you can find the full blog hop list at the end of my post as well as finding your way to the beginning of the hop back at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog.
The challenges on offer this month were:
I decided to have a go at the title challenge - to create an unexpected title and I had a vision in my mind which didn't really materialise, if truth be told! But that's ok because I like the overall effect of the layout and it was fun to try something new.
I almost always turn to my large collection of Thickers for my titles and then might add in mini stickers to add more variety so my challenge was to keep my hands off the Thickers and try my hand at stitching! I had a perfect picture of neat, swirly, sewn title matched up with some October Afternoon Mini Market stickers for something very unexpected for me. Mmmm.... the neat and swirly part certainly didn't work. I think that my gold thread was rather lumpy bumpy for such a small font so lesson learnt.
But the topic of the layout was something I wanted to capture and I certainly don't want to waste that gorgeous My Mind's Eye paper so I'm satisfied to add it to my pile of layouts to be filed away sometime this century...
