080615 CKC August Challenge #1

Today's Counterfeit Kit August Challenge #1

Challenge 1: BLANK CANVAS

  Use WHITE as your background on your project. 
 Just plain white.  

You can use what ever colors/papers from your kit to 
go on top, but the background paper must be white.

I was so happy to get this challenge! 
I have had some amazing photos ready to scrap that will work so well with this.

First I layered a vertical strip of this (?) woodgrain transparency overlay

Then I made a collage of the photos I wanted to use. Aren't they adorable?

Then I sifted through my kit goodies for navy items to audition.
I had thought I would be using my orange paper but that didn't make the cut.

My original inspiration was this yummy from Valerie Oullett, but then I decided 
that my photos would disappear. I still liked the vertical orientation.

Love how much texture & interest that simple overlay adds!

Hope you were inspired :-)
Make sure to add your project to the Linky!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Oh this turned out handsomely. Love your primary coloursheme and those gorgeous. Cute ferret/weasel /???

  2. That overlay really does drawn you immediately in to those photos. I like the minimal look too - it really keeps the focus on those two handsome little guys!

  3. Love the way the hugging photo is highlighted. Beautifully presented layout that allows the photos to shine.

  4. It's all you but not, both at the same time! I love it. Great simple look although with different photos, I think you would ROCK the other layout design with all that touchy feely messy stuff! I'd love to see a more literal take on that one too :-)


Would love to know you've been here! Feedback most welcome
