Just The Ticket

Layout detail - 3 papers, home-made "flair" button - JimjamsWelcome to the first outing of the re-introduced Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog Members' Blog Hop.  I am so happy that we've brought it back; it was how I first got involved with the CKCB and it's such fun to see lots of new blogs and get lots of new visitors.

I'm hop#1 today (the whole list is published today on the CKCB) and the main subject of the hop is our takes on the first CKCB challenge for January which was all about the number THREE: use three papers, a three word title and three embellies.


I had a go at this challenge at the beginning of the month using my November Counterfeit Kit, and today I have my January Kit version.  I've used three photos but I promise that was chance rather than more OCD tendencies surfacing LOL!  Now that I look at the page I am SO amazed to see that the diagonal stripes on the right hand strips actually match perfectly - also entirely by chance!!!  Rather than include a block of my 3rd patterned paper I used it to cut my title from (using Blossom & Man Oh Man dies).

Layout - Just The Ticket - Jimjams

Can you read the journalling?  It tells of our first lazy day at Downtown Disney in 2004, mooching around recovering from the flights from the UK ... and how I was keeping an eye out for shops selling knickers as I'd been so busy packing for the family that I'd left home without doing mine properly!  Needless to say Downtown Disney was not the place to go to replenish your underwear!

While you're here you might be interested in a book "passing" that is up for grabs on an earlier post, but if not, your next stop on the CKCBMBH (!) is Lesley who has already produced several lovely pages from her kit and will no doubt have something gorgeous to share today.

Great page and great story! I'm glad you've brought the "hop" back too. Now tell me - do downtown disney shops sell adult Mickey Mouse knickers?

Brilliant page! I love how the title stands out on a busy background. And the diagonal stripes make the page flow! I always pack better for my family than for myself too! X

Oh I like the stripy paper - well done on the accidental matching too. Yeah, that forgetting one minor thing ;) can be a bit annoying. Hope you found some somewhere....

Love the colours and patterns....it all has quite a graphic feel.

Sandra said...

It's a fun, bright page, with the stripes really pulling it together

Such a fun page! I love the happy diagonal paper fits perfectly with your pictures and journaling!

Lisa said...

what a lovely selection of papers and that diagonal stripe is just scrummy! Nice blocking - I haven't done that for ages - must remember to give it a try again soon. This looks just great! Here's to successful hopping!

love non-tradional layouts of Disney and what a great story with it! That could happen to me too since I normally pack my bags last!

Great use of threes. So sorry I didn't manage to join you. I finally photographed my kit today, so I may get something done before the end of the month LOL!

Lisa J said...

Thanks for doing the hop again!!
Love your colour blocked design. And I had the same thought as Lesley...surely there must have been a pair of Mickey Mouse ones there.

Great job with the blocked pattern paper. I must give it a try.

Julene Matthews said...

A gorgeous page and I love that sea monster.

Cute page - funny story. Knickerless at Disney - what would Minnie say about that! I'm glad the EOM blog hop is back too.

Angela Coles said...

lovely page, like the blocking on it. I've not been to Disney yet, maybe one day we'll get some passports.

bless you

Love your layout!!

Guess what? I forgot to pack my panties on our family trip to Disney World!!! LOL! Totally true story and it WAS hard to find them. I ended up getting one pack at a gift shop in one of the resort hotels. I had to handwash and drip dry the whole week! Anyway, love the simple grid like pattern on your layout. Nice and clean.
