New Page for Creative Scrappers #295

Hey folks, how's your weekend going? Father's Day tomorrow and I haven't made a card yet, yikes! Maybe I should get on that after this blog post...

So I managed to finish another page using my June Counterfeit Kit. That makes two! Dare I say I'm on a roll? 

Did you hear that Creative Scrappers is back in action? They always have such fabulous sketches! Here's their newest:
And here's the page I put together:
Remember in my last post I said I was messing around with watercolour backgrounds using distress ink, but the end result using blue and pink was a bit too purple for what I wanted?  Well, I saved that background, and used it here.  I love how it turned out, and I thought it complimented the colour of Brenna's dress in the photos nicely.  

It's hard to see in the photo, but one of the layering pieces I used was this feather printed vellum from Close to My Heart.  It's very subtle, but soft and pretty.  I also managed to get some of my forged watercolour blossoms and hearts onto this page, and I love how they add a customized touch to it: 
Hard to believe these photos were taken almost two years ago!  Here's a close up of the journaling, which tells the story of how Brenna got car sick on the way to Barkerville:
Even though she's two years older now, she still crashes hard like that on long car trips, head right back, mouth wide open - so adorable!

Hope you enjoy my page, and if you hustle, there's still time to get a layout in for this sketch challenge, or even participate in the Counterfeit Kit Challenges going on this month.  Better late than never, right?
