The Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog Hop!!!

Welcome to my first ever blog hop!  Thank you to the wonderful ladies at Counterfeit Kit Challenge!  Meridy and Betheny, I am having too much fun with this!  Joining this challenge has really got my creative mojo going!

I did kind a "two for one" for this blog hop using this sketch from Scraps of Darkness.


I used the sketch above to also do the challenge of "Putting Pen to Paper" from the Counterfeit Kit Challenge.  I found the journaling really hard to do, since I usually stick to the "facts" when journaling.  But, when I saw the sketch, immediately I knew what to do.


Everything was from my kit, except the journaling paper (which was from Creative Imaginations like the stickers I put in my kit), and the "family runs deeper" sticker (same company).  I edge punched the papers with a Martha Stewart punch, punched the butterflies with an EK Success punch, and the flourish inside the butterfly is a Fiskars punch that I colored with a glitter pen.

Thanks for stopping by, and please hop on over to our next stop to see what Kylie has come up with!!  If you need to start at the beginning...start here at Counterfeit Kit Challenge!

Love that you managed to combine the two challenges for this layout and that you wrote that letter to your family.

love how you manipulated the edges on your page... I wanted to do the journaling challenge but I thought I would do a note my step-daughter sent to her baby brother. I never thought to do it to this sketch. It does seem perfect for it. thanks for the great idea

Great idea to use the sketch as inspiration for the journaling challenge! You page is absolutely gorgeous, and I love that you allowed yourself a big sheet to do your journaling. I originally thought of doing something like that, but did not have the paper in my kit. Fabulous work!

Great job combining the challenges, Michelle! I have to admit that I skipped over the "pen-to-paper" challenge. I love that your journaling is the focus of your layout! thanks so much for sharing!

Very pretty and you have pretty handwriting too!

Warning...blog hops are addictive.;) I think your pen to paper challenge came out quite well. It was definately a hard challenge to complete but well worth it once done.

What a great way to combine both the sketch and that challenge. I was so stumped on what to do for that one, but I think even with the month over I'm still going to try and do it. So happy you figured out how to do it in your layout. Thanks for sharing.
