I'm kicking off today, so you can find out all about the hop back at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog and the full list is at the end of the post.
Here are the March challenges in March:
- Challenge #1: Border Craze: Get crazy with borders
- Challenge #2: Irish Challenge: Celebrate St Patrick's Day with some creativity!
- Challenge #3: Desk Challenge: Take inspiration from the state of your desk
I wanted to give the border challenge a go and knew exactly what paper I was going to use! I had been wondering how on earth I was going to use all those hot air balloons on a page and this seemed the perfect opportunity.
In fact, this page came together in my head long before the challenge came about while I was flying to NYC. I remember taking off and as we went through the clouds and the bright sunshine came though the window, I suddenly came up with the title on this layout - Beyond the clouds, the sun is always shining. It seemed to sum up everything I'd been thinking recently. I snapped a shot to make up the page when I got back. Perfect timing.

A little journalling card is tucked away under the photo.
Fussy cutting the balloons out seemed perfect for my mixed up border.
I love how this turned out! What about you? Have you ever come up with a page this way?
Next up in the hop is the ever delightful Clair! She is such an awesome crafter and a well-loved counterfeiter, and we are thrilled to have her on the hop again. Make sure you go over and say hello!
And here's the full list in case you get lost along the way.
