Magic Memories May 16 Counterfeit Kit post

Evening all

Today I've been off to a crop for (Inter)National Scrapbooking Day.. and a very productive day it was too!

For once I got myself organised and decided I would take a condensed kit with me to play with.. so I took my May Counterfeit Kit, 'Magic Memories' with me. It had most of the items I needed to scrap the Disney pictures I wanted to use and I made sure that I took lots of  additional embellishments too and some stamps and punches so I could make extra embellies if I needed to. When I got to the crop I was delighted to see that the shop that runs from there each month had a brand new supply of Disney charms, buttons, bling etc.. how fortuitous was that?? Needless to say I had to have some!

Imanaged five layouts today and here is the first one I managed.. inspired by The Memory Nest Blog sketch here.

and here is my take on it- as you can see I chose squares rather than hexagons but I believe you can see the similarities.

The Black Minnie and bow was bought today as were the two gold Mickey heads and the red spotty heart and the Red spotty bow that matches my sons GF's hair bow and ears. I punched the black and white chevrons from a scrap and used Simple Stories Say Cheese II collection with two strips of gold spotty washi tape on the right.

I'll be back soon with more layouts from today so do remember to pop back for another look see.

Have a great day evening.
