Rather late showing off my kit this month.  It's not very well coordinated as I don't think my brain was working particularly well at the time of pulling it together.  It's not presented very well either.  But hopefully you get the idea...

This is what we were to counterfeit:

Balboa by Noel Mignon.  When I look at this kit I see; speech bubbles, triangles and banners. red glitter thickers, pins and enamel dots. Ribbon and washi and pegs.  Chalkboard, bright colours and frames.  PL type cards, stickers and embellishments.

I took out the chalkboard because I don't have any and don't really like it.  I don't see the point of following the trend if it's not 'you'.  I added a half made black and white mini album to my kit as a replacement for the chalkboard elements. 

These are the papers I picked that have to be used up.  I am also allowing myself unlimited plain cardstock, all of my ribbon stash, and actually anything else from my stash - but the deal is I must use all of the papers and make a real dent in the stickers.

After Your Bath

I had not seen the first challenge was triangles when I started this layout.  It is all triangles - they seem to be everywhere at the moment and, unlike chalkboard, I like them.  This is a really simple layout layering vellum over the bright patterned paper and adding a few silver triangles.

It's not a naked picture but I've blurred it as I'd be a bit annoyed if someone posted pictures of me wrapped in a towel!

So there is my kit and layout one which coincidentally fits with challenge one.  I have been busy so there are plenty of layouts to follow...


  1. Loving the LO.

    Hope you are having a nice weekend.

  2. Oh that's a very stylish kit.. and the LO is simple yet perfect!

  3. Your kit looks great - lots more triangles to play with, I see. Sweet first page too. Looking forward to seeing more.

  4. That's the great thing about counterfeiting -we get to make it work for us. Sweet layout and I'm looking forward to seeing more.

  5. What a fun kit, and love what you counterfeited :) Super cute layout too

  6. very smart to only follow the trends that really appeal. I also love the triangles but can definitely leave the chalkboard stuff to others! I adore your sparkly triangles on the layout - great idea
