CKCB LO no 3

Afternoon all.

Today I decided to hop on over to the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog and see what they have been up to. I love the look of their challenge no 3, but I haven't had time to make my contribution for that challenge yet.. I've already done challenges 1 and 2 though.

So, as I was itching to make a LO, yet didn't feel my kit was 'spring like' enough, I decided to use some of the black and white I had included in my kit, Halfway to Halloween. 

So,  as many of you know, I have a new grand-daughter, and therefore lots of new photos to scrap! and... my son is nearing 30 so I am working on his 30th birthday album! 

First I chose this sketch from Sues blog, Me and Mine, where she hosts a sketch challenge each month. Do pop over and check out her blog some time. 

I started with a sheet of the polka dot PP from Echo Park Chillingsworth Manor collection.. and a two simple striped sheet of PP that I had in my saved scraps for ever!  

Then I chose a piece of PP from the kit, which is a from Teresa Collins, 'We are Family' collection as the background for the photo. 

I edited the piece so the most relevant words were visible. 

I then added bling, and some flowers and butterfly stickers from the kit and as a final addition I added some small lime green leaves behind the flowers to tie in the green from the photo. 

Thanks for popping by.
