Counterfeit Kit Challenge meets "Last Minute Lisa"

Great to see you back here at my very neglected blog! I really must do better.

It's prompt #2 up on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog today and Leslie challenged me with the following:

"National Animal Crackers Day! This could take you in many directions. First might be a favorite childhood treat. With all the cute whimsical animals in the main kit inspiration you may have something in your kit that will inspire. Or that iconic box with the circus train car may take you in a whole new direction!"

I was last minute as usual and actually managed to make up a layout and photograph it just under the wire before I realised that I'd forgotten to actually WRITE my journalling! Doh! I'll get to that in the next few days for sure as I know that once you leave it, it never gets done.

I was inspired by the cute and whimsical paper I'd included in my kit from Webster's Pages with butterflies and birds. So there I have inspiration from animals #1. Then I found a couple of extra photos of sweet P, my niece, which I'd printed off but never used and thought it would be nice to bring them together on my favourite sort of page. Her nickname as a bump was always "Little Bird" and so that is also inspiration from animals #2. And what better title than the nickname itself. Inspiration from animals #3. 

I know that I've used this title on a P page before but these are different photos and I will make sure that I write something different for the journalling so that they don't overlap.

I loved the fact that everything in my April kit, Chirpy, seems to go together so well even though the items all come from different manufacturers and collections. This was a super easy layout together even though I helped myself by making it simple. I'll add the journalling at the bottom under the bow.

This chipboard banner fits the subject so well referring to a bird's wings as well as being brave. Little P is nothing if not headstrong and confident!

I have to admit to adding in the clips from the Paige Evans Take Me Away collection into my kit for this page. It was good to break into the pack and use one. Hopefully it will encourage me to continue as they are so cute.

Thanks for dropping by today.

  1. Chirpy and Little Bird just seem made for each other - such pretty colours and shapes within your elegant and simply design. Lovely! If you can make pages like this at the last minute ... :).

  2. SO lovely & sweet! A page after my own heart - the patterned paper does much of the work. Your kit this month really is amazingly fresh & beautiful & I agree with your analysis of how well all the different manufacturers play together.

  3. Such adorable photos! I love this sweet layout!

  4. What a gorgeous gentle page :)

  5. Such a pretty page! I appreciate how you've included your inspirations.
