First Layout with My October Counterfeit Kit!

Wow, first layout in I don't know how long. I'm patting myself on the back right now! 
It features a photo of my two eldest, Nolan and Ailis, goofing off as per usual.

Seeing I haven't scrapped in so long, I needed to find a sketch to use for inspiration. I used this one from Let's Get Sketchy:
All supplies are from my October Counterfeit Kit.  I have CTMH background paper and gold polka dot vellum (wow, love that stuff, it's so gorgeous!  I had the rest of my piece laying out, and my husband put a frozen goat salami on the corner, and now it's warped - I was pretty mad!  Only a guy would put something wet on something paper, grrrrr!)  The yellow patterned paper is Crate Paper, and then there's a Prima flower and butterfly punched from some Simple Stories paper.  The doily is one I cut with my Silhouette some time ago from cream cardstock, then I just inked it with some CTMH Moonstruck ink.  The feather and button are from a dollar store.

One of the challenges from the folks at Counterfeit Kits was to use confetti on our project.  I found some sequins in my stash, but I didn't know how to do them all random.  So first I sprayed some Lindy's Stamp Gang spray in my two corners, then spilled a handful of sequins in those areas.  Then I glued each little sequin down by hand.  A little tedious, but I'm quite pleased with the results.  Unfortunately, my confetti effect doesn't show up that great in my photos.
So that's it for me for today, but I am motivated to get started on my second layout.  Wish me luck!
