The Counterfeit Kit Challenge participant blog hop!

Welcome, welcome. Glad you are here :-)

I hope you've been hopping though the whole list (it's a glorious, long list this time around) and I'm here to round it off. You should have arrived via Tammie but if you've landed here directly, I suggest you start at the beginning (Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog here) and grab a cuppa  - there's a whole lot of inspiration out there!

The theme of this blog hop is the prompt posted on the CKC site back at the beginning of the month. They challenged us to make a layout using three patterned papers, three embellishments and a three word title.

Mmmm, not so easy I thought. But I gave it a go and it was so much easier than I thought it would be. Double sided paper helped but to be honest I only used those B-sides for a few of the paper embellishments. Limiting myself made me get a bit more creative than usual and love the result. My January kit, Renew is making me so happy. Bright colours and fun patterns proving to be the perfect antidote to the January miseries!

The three patterned papers are:

Echo Park Everyday Eclectic Doily Multi and Chevron Woodgrain and Bo Bunny Vicki B Loverley.

And my three embellishments are washi tape (love this super narrow diagonal stripe), an American Crafts flair badge from Craft Fair Sew Cool and a couple of stickers from October Afternoon Ducks in a Row.

I know, it looks more! But that's because I filled the page with all sorts of little bits and pieces!

Not only did I complete the CKC Challenge #1, but also the January Page Maps sketch that was featured on the Counterfeit blog...

... and also Whimsical Musings prompt #63 to use a random collection of photos. I'd printed these out before Christmas to do this challenge so it was nice to see them down on a layout.

WEll, thanks for stopping by and please leave me a comment to let me know you were here. Next on the hop is the delightful Andrea so be sure to head over there and say hello - one talented lady :-)

Here is the full list of hoppers if you'd like to go back over their wonderful projects or in case you get lost along the way!
