April Counterfeit Kit Projects, #4 and #5

 First off, here is my attempt to copycat the paper Headed South, "It's the Little Things" by Fancy Pants. I just grabbed some stamps and colors and went to town.  I don't think it turned out too bad...now I just have to figure out what to do with it.  HAHA!
 This is my layout in response to the challenge of using memorabilia in your projects.  OK, I know that receipts may not be memorabilia...but when I got done shopping I had this idea and I went with it.  I used the die that I bought today to make the gears on the layout.  I added the flower beads and Stickles to the center of them.  I also added the letter stickers to make the title "Retail Therapy".  I grabbed a tag, used Glimmer Mist and wrote the quote in it.
The ribbons and papers came from my April Counterfeit Kit, as did the buttons.  I also love the fact that the bottom of the receipt has the date on it...I didn't notice that until I finished the page!

Have a crafty day!

The next best thing to retail therapy is a layout about retail therapy. I like it a lot (yes, that would be both of the above)!
