End of month scramble!!

Well it's nearly the last day of the month and therefore the last day of my guest designer stint at Counterfeit Kit Challenge.  I have two layouts to share today and a little assessment of what is left.  There are ingredients for a further 3 layouts but I'm not sure I'll get them done on time.

'oh hi bike'

See these papers?  They are why I'm scrambling at the end of the month.  I put them in my kit, I knew which photos I was going to use with them but I could not bring myself to cut them!  Daft I know, but I love them!

Eventually I made the first cut - guess what?  Nothing happened.  The world did not coming crashing down.  Oxygen did not run out.

'And then she could ride a bike'

I just love this layout!  It's one of my favourites.  Not really sure what to write about it, just that I love it!  (Boy! I know how to blog!!)

This is a charm that I bought years ago.  I knew I'd use it one day :D

And here is what is left from my kit:

There are a couple of half done layouts which I probably won't share.  Two sheets of brown which will go back in to my stash - not playing by the rules, I know, but I'm just not going to use them.  I don't have photos to match them, nothing looks right.  A pile of little bits - got a plan for them.  The wood stars - MUST use them.  The pink and orange twine - again MUST use!   With the addition of some white 12x12 I reckon I can get two or three layouts out of this.

I used almost all of the alphabets that I planned to use up.  (I added other alphas with the assumption they wouldn't be finished this time around.)  With what was left I adapted the j's to make i's and can now spell 'whizz kid'.  I don't have a photo for this yet so I'll pop them in a bag and remember to take a photo of one of the little ones doing something whizzy!!

I like to lay it all out to see what is still unused.  It's given me a few ideas.  Must get on and see if I can get them to materialise before the end of the 31st May!!

Thanks for stopping by


  1. Now that LO is fab. I love the writing round the edge. I'd never think of doing that.

  2. Lovely layout. I NEED that paper! Being a cyclist myself! Even been cycling to work in the rain this week!

  3. Lovely layouts :) I think I still have my paper just never got a chance to scrap any trip pictures (next month maybe :) Yep I've seen that many times at the end of the month in my own craft room (some month we;ll get it all used up :) thanks for being the guest designer this month :)

  4. Well done, Laura, using your supplies to such good effect. That paper certainly is unusual! I love the colour scheme of your layouts, and that charm is gorgeous - amazing how things "mature" and claim a use eventually, isn't it. Good work!

    Thanks for your visit and your nice comment on my blog, and I'm glad you liike my pizza box project. It came about by accident really - I just thought it was a bit boring as present wrapping and one thing sort of led to another!! I shall definitely be doing some more in due course.


  5. Happy that you took the risk & put the snips to those special papers! Wonderful results. Have so enjoyed your being on the team this month!

  6. Thanks for some great inspiration this month! Loved seeing what you have created. Keep in scrapping!

  7. Know what you mean about the end of month scramble. It catches me unawares ever time. Fun post, it made me laugh. Great LO's
