CKC Design Team Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Design Team Blog hop! You should have gotten here from Lisa's blog.

This challenge was so easy because of the talent of our Masters of Forgery team at Counterfeit Kit Challenge! The hard part was narrowing it down to ONE designer! As soon as I visited her blog, I was immediately inspired by Lisa's artistic style. She uses a lot of paint and doodling, which I really want to use more of, and this gave me the perfect opportunity. My layout was inspired by two of her recent projects, the painted canvas and the kraft "Park Day" page.


I'm almost positive I've never used this much paint on a layout, so I was a little nervous going into it. I am happy with the way the layout turned out, though. The photo is of me as a baby, going through the dog door. It is one of those legendary stories I remember as a child, and I'm so happy to have a photo of it. I used the scanned photo as is, but it could really use some restoration.


Next stop on the hop is Meridy's blog. Have fun, and remember to leave some love on each blog!
