050616 CKC May Challenge #1

Mind Your Qs & Ks!

The inspiration this month at CKCis the May/June 2014 collection of Quirky Kits 
and the first challenge celebrates those neglected letters. 
Please feature a Q and/or a K on your project e.g. use a monogram, 
include the letter(s) in your BIG title - but something other than journalling
 - those letter(s) must be loud and proud!

When I set out to work on this, I had just been on a wonderful outing with the grands.
Of course, this self-respecting grammarazzi had a stick full of photos in the big camera.

Unfortunately PSE was not cooperating & the print quality was mediocre,
but they were such a small scale & it would have been an immense amount
of work to recreate it so I simply called it good, done, and moved on.
 I have a mini planned for this day using the high quality booklet we were given.

Oh - and there's my BIG K! So happy to get that butterfly in this month as the
inspiration kit had some really nice transparent ones that I didn't counterfeit.

I mentioned in my kit reveal this month that I had a few more things that weren't shown.
Mostly alphas (including the gold ones which were in the original kit), a few b/w botanical
cards, a few ribbons,  an assortment of diecuts, and those packs of graphics from IKEA.

I fussy cut the deer image to use as an embellishment.
Loved the colors with that geometric patterned paper!

It was definitely a GRAND day.

  1. I love how you've done this page - with its pretty yet graphical edge.

  2. Beautiful - you are really on a roll! I can't stop looking at your title - it's just so crisp and clean and perfect! Worthy of a magazine appearance - I just love it!

  3. Ah, now I've caught this on the blog and found out where the gorgeous deer and the geometrics are from! How clever of you to use cards from Ikea in your kit! What fun and a perfect way to incorporate unusual items into the kit. Of course, the layout is delightful - always is!
