Island Lunch


Today I'm sharing my first layout of the month from my March Counterfeit Kit. I used papers and embellies from both my main kit and my add-on kits. You can see the contents of my main kit in THIS post. I will be sharing my add-on kits all this week, so be sure to check back to see what goodies I've unearthed in my scrap room!

For this page, I kept the design pretty basic, but added some fun little accents. I had this lonely yellow flower in my stash, so I folded it in half and added a button to to top. Although it is meant to be a flower, it kind of reminds me of a little sunshine peeking up above the photos. I tucked a little journaling spot behind the flower, then added a sprinkling of buttons and bling brads.

I embellished my buttons by using some of the tiniest rub-ons from my kit. I think they add just the right amount of whimsy to this layout. I even made a few extras just to have ready in my kit. These would make great little accents for a card or tag, too. It helps those little rub-ons from getting lost on the project.

Hope you can stop in tomorrow for the reveal of my first add-on, my Counterfeit Babbling Brook kit. Lots of handmade papers and accents, and some tips for how you can "get the look."
