Scrapki Wyzwaniowo, Amiche di Scrap Challenge, Counterfeit Kit Challenge...

 
 
 
 Scrap with an animal in your project....
 
So had heaps of fun creating with this busy little squirrel!
 
 
I've extended the branches out with paint and black fineliner, and the little berries are a mixture of  red sequins, to rhinestone brads, to little red brads... starting with the large at the bottom to the smaller ones at the top of the branches to give that perspective of closer to far away.

Sfida Layout #7
is all about outdoor photos....
So getting some of my travel pics scrapped is a perfect opportunity!
 
 
 
Used some more little sequin pinwheels.... this time with some little heart shaped brads.
After falling in love with this type of sequin....I just HAD to go find and dig out all my old brads which had been put away in little screw plastic containers with all the 'daggy' stuff from ages old....  and looky...back in fashion again.  I was thrilled to find them among boxes stored away! (complete with squeal....'there they are!')  Another reason why I had so much fun with the squirrel LO..... used heaps of old brads!

I'm really happy to play along with Counterfeit Kit Challenges again....
It's just such a wonderful tool to get a kit together (out of your own stash) and then with everything co-ordinated in a box for the month - it becomes the main 'go to' especially  if time is scarce.
 
Here's the kit for this month to Counterfeit..
 



 
 
 
 
 
I really picked up on the colour, some project life... and the 'travel' theme...certainly want to get those travel photos done....it could not be more perfect!
Here's what I managed...
 
Papers...
 
 Project Life and Stickers

 
Alpha's


Embellishments


more embellishments
 
 
and some great map stamps!
 
 
I've already used a bit of this kit in the 'Jump' LO of Paige above...
so its going to be very useful!

The squirrel one, in my book, is a sure fire winner!!! Loving the stag-ger one too, of course! And your kit looks better than the 'real' one!!! I hear you with the brads, too....been using a few myself lately;)

You have been busy! Wonderful creating! Love the added branches in the first layout.. Love the outside photos and have fun with your kit!

Angela Coles said...

two beautiful layouts, and your CKC kit is amazing. I'm sure you'll scrap lots of brilliant pages with it.

Great pages and a wonderful CKCB kit. Love the brad excitement - I've been using them recently ... must dig out my eyelets too!

Jimjams said...

Forgot to say that the squirrel page wins the prize for clever creativity - you are very talented!

Audrey Pettit said...

Your pages and projects always bring the biggest smile to my face, Mandy!! You are SO creative and SO inspirational! I absolutely adore how you extended the branch on your first layout of the squirrel, and all those red berry brads and sequins are so eye catching. Really love how you "attached" the photos with the snippets of washi. Really adorable. And your jump layout is fabulous, too. Love the stamping and the filmstrip, and those hearts and pinwheels are really fun. Way to rock the super old stash items! Fabulous camera washi, too!

Wow amazing kit and lovely layouts!

Your kit is amazing as always. Love the mix of papers especially. I spy airmail colours and map papers - *sigh*!

Love it and that layout about Pisa is fabulous.

Forgot to mention though that your first layout - with the extension of the tree onto the background is incredible! Wow girl! Amazing.
