Just a quick post to share two more layouts that I have scrapped using my May Counterfeit Challenge Kit. While the rest of the scrapping World is taking the weekend off to scrap, I am trying to squeeze in a few scrappy moments. A very busy weekend here with visitors staying over, some grandbaby sitting and today is my youngest son’s birthday! Can’t quite believe that he is now 27. The whole family is getting together this evening to celebrate his birthday, as he is about to fly off to Victoria, Australia, on his never-ending journey to experience more of life and living. Oh, to be young again and have that freedom to travel anywhere you like.
Speaking of travel, did you watch Leslie Smith (from the Counterfeit Kit Challenge group) live on the FB Bash Your Scrapbook Stash(BYSS)? Leslie did an amazing job explaining what and how the Counterfeit Kit Challenge works and how you can all join in. As part of the NSD weekend, Leslie demonstrated how she made her kit for the special NSD BYSS CKC collaboration challenge. The challenge is to construct a past Studio Calico kit called ‘Expedition Scrapbook Kit’. It is a great travel theme kit with lovely patterned papers and wood veneer embellishments, sequins and alphas. Go check out all the information to join the challenge on the CKC website and watch her video on the FB Bash Your Scrapbook Stash page and join in the fun of constructing your own counterfeit kit and layout using the provided sketch.
Now, my May CKC quick layouts. The layout 3. is a simple scrap lift using a PageMaps sketch from 2016. No mixed media at all this time, just some simple layering of paper and embellishments. It is a bright and fun layout of my grandson on one of the summer carnivals rides which are set up on the foreshore in the lovely (small) city of Busselton, Western Australia.
Layout 4. is also about the same location, Busselton foreshore, The Goose restaurant is one of the best locations for sipping cocktails and watching the sun go down over the ocean and the famous Busselton Jetty.
A little bit of paint splatter on this layout and an abundance of embellishments…had to get rid of those pineapples in my kit somehow!
Keep on scrapping and please do share what you are creating during the NSD celebrations around the World. Enjoy NSD 🙂
