101220 CKC October Challenge #1

 My "Be Happy" October 2020 counterfeit kit:

Master Forger of Ceremonies Tracey has issued the first challenge: 

The first challenge for October is for you to pick your favourite Season from either Autumn (Fall) or Spring and scrapbook a page (a double page if you dare!!!) about an event or activity that occurred in the Season you have picked.

My inspiration began with this October Stick It Down double page sketch:

They post a monthly Double Sketch, Single Sketch, and Card Sketch with an amazing Design Team for inspiration. Pop by & take a look, won't you? Here's my take:

I've got a few less bits & bobs and my journaling appears on the photos themselves.

Here's a closer look:

My title block was anchored with a couple of fussy-cut labels from my counterfeit paper.

More fussy-cutting of the 2018 Pink Paislee/Horizon #04 word paper.

2014 BasicGrey/Second City sticker photo corners helped dress up the open sky of this photo.

We get an early frost here in Michigan!

I printed two photo collages of 3-1/2" square photos, one for each page of the spread. I had a photo that needed to be horizontally rectangle, so I just slipped it into two slots on the right hand side collage. I reserved a blank spot on the left hand side for my title block.

My other problem was only having one sheet of each of my kit papers. I knew that the bright mixed-media style orange paper would be perfect but it was so old that it was flimsy (not cardstock weight), so my spread rests on a foundation of white card. I had to carefully calculate the size of my strips to eke out what was needed from that one sheet!

I'm so pleased with how this turned out. It's certainly been awhile since I've "dared" to tackle a two-page spread! Thanks for the challenge, Tracey!

So what else do we have left for you in October?

  • October 18th: We’ll give you another challenge to help you use the kit you’ve made.
  • October 24th: Tracey will be showcasing one of the CKC Community who’s caught her eye.
