August Masters of Forgery Blog Hop!!

Welcome to the Masters of Forgery blog hop! I hope you got here via Lisa's blog. Our fabulous sponsor this month, Allison Davis of Sketch support, created a sketch especially for us this month! For the blog hop, we are challenged to use this sketch to create a project with our Counterfeit kits.

See the sketch here.

This was a challenge for me because I don't often do two page layouts! It's such a fun sketch, though. I was inspired to scrap some older pics of my kids that were taken by my cousin's husband Isaac Hernandez. The kids were wearing his old hat, and he just snapped these shots in our back yard. They are some of my favorites! I only had enough photos to fill up some of the spots for photos, so I used pieces of the glittered paper from my kit in the other spaces.


The layout was different for me, also, because I don't usually do this type of monochromatic color scheme. I think it's growing on me!

Next stop on the hop is Meridy's blog. I'm sure she has something amazing to show you! Thanks for playing along this month. I hope to see you here again next month!

Stylishly stunning page Gabrielle - the pictures are brilliant and I love the way you've de-cluttered the sketch allowing us to focus on the cute photos. Title in French is the perfect finishing touch too!

The way you've minimized the number of photos is very effective. Gorgeous two-page spread.
