Two new Lo's with my Counterfeit Kit

Evening all...

Last night I spent a happy couple of hours whiling away the evening in front of the TV while hubby was at work again. 

Firstly I thought I'd do the weekly challenge over on UKS which entailed using a sketch and ensuring there was plenty of journaling. For this challenge I decided to use another of the wedding photo's from my sons wedding last year. This picture is of my Uncle and Aunt... he will be 80 this year and I am thinking of doing an album for him for later in the year.. so this is the first. As I said I used my Counterfeit Kit from their blog here. I used some of my Favourite Things kit that I blogged earlier in the month. Here it is .. I used some crown charms from the wedding table favours that I made with DIL before the wedding. Here is the link to my earlier blog about those. You can see the crowns and the journalling here. 

Secondly, I made a LO for the January Sketch Challenge over on Sue's Me and Mine Blog. It is a great site, why not pop on over and take a peek, she's always looking for more entries to her challenges. I made my centre piece larger than the example on her blog, but I got a bit carried away. I again used my Favourite Things Kit and chose to use the pink papers from the kit... for a change! I so often grab aqua, teal etc (especially all the wedding LO's that have been done in those colours) so it makes a nice change to scrap in a different colour. I confess I did use two extra sheets of PP to pad out the pink as I didn't have much in my kit. This picture is of my husband and I about 33 years ago shortly after we got married... I love his long hair in this.. although the detail s a bit fizzy now. I chose to curl up the tags along the top of the centre piece so I hope you can see that from the second photo.

Well that's about it for tonight.. if I get a chance to do some more LO's, I'll be back.. as Arnie says. 

Have a good weekend everyone. 


  1. Oh I love the photo - you must have got married about the same time that we did. Super colours on your layout - in fact a fab page all round. Thank you for joining in my challenge and also for your kind words about my blog. :)
