July Travel Mini page kit!

At the Counterfeit Kit Challenge, we are trying something new. Each month, one of the Masters of Forgery makes a mini page kit of their own, including a sketch. I was lucky enough to be able to make a travel/vacation mini kit this month! Our family's big vacation each year is a camping trip to one of the gorgeous parks we have within a few hour's drive of our home in California.

I recently purchased My Mind's Eye Abbey Road "Round and Round" collection, which I failed to get two years ago when it was released. I love the colors and texture of this paper, which I thought would be perfect for this kit and the page I had in mind! My kit included some of the papers and cardstock embellishments from that paper line, as well as dimensional vacation stickers by K & Co., mini alphas my Making Memories, a fun vacation stamp set, and buttons.

This is Pencillines sketch #228, which is simple, yet just right because of the shaped cardstock included in my kit.

My layout features photos from our "stay-cation" camping trip last summer.

I have another fun idea for saving all of the memorabilia you've collected on your summer travels! Why not make a cool travel souvenir case?!! I've included a simple tutorial, which you can see by scrolling down to the prior blog post.

Your page is totally cute - I may have to have a go at that sketch too.

Love that arrow - I haven't done this kit yet, but I'm hoping to catch up later! Good sketch too
