June Counterfeit Kit Challenge member blog hop

Welcome to the June Countefeit Kit Challenge member blog hop.

I'm first on the list today so if you are looking for some colourful, and possibly delicious inspiration, I suggest you check out the whole hop.

We were asked to be inspired by the colours, smells and tastes of your local Farmers' Market today.

Farmer's Market Challenge: Get inspired by the displays, colors, textures, produce and over all feel of the place.

I went down the food aspect of this inspiration to capture a little story about how we eat tomato, mozzarella and basil almost every Thursday! For years. It's become such a habit that even my brothers remind me that it's Thursday tomato-mozzie night when they come to visit. I tracked down one of the many photos of our regular bite and used my current kit, Personality to make a simple layout.

I added in some green and red sequins and was heavily inspired by a Pinterest find (here) by Stephanie Bryan from the Glitz blog (here). I loved everything about this layout and copied several elements quite faithfully - a new scrap crush perhaps. And on a side note, isn't everything that Glitz do right now gorgeous???

Anyway, here's my layout.

Thanks for dropping by and don't forget to let me know you were here.

Next up is a trip down the road to France to catch up with Maggie, and here's the full list in case you get lost along the way. Happy hopping.

On an unrelated side note, there have been reminders all over the net about the demise of Google Reader. I still follow a whole slew of blogs even if I can't find the time to visit them all so I moved over to bloglovin' thanks to a gentle but firm reminder from Debbie P. Don't get caught out - move over now. If I'm right, Google Reader ends in just a few days and my move to bloglovin' took about 3 minutes - job done.

    I'm just trying out bloglovin tonight. I had been using feedly for the last few weeks - as when reader first announced it was leaving us, bloglovin didn't have an android app. It does now, and I think I prefer it.


I love comments! Thanks for taking the time. <3 <3 <3
