A Universal Experience

Layout detail - embellishment cluster - Jimjams
Welcome to the March Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog Members' Blog Hop (or CKCBMBH for short)!  Today we are sharing our takes on the first March challenge - photo-only projects with no journalling - the complete opposite of last month's challenge!  Luckily, I am currently scrapping a holiday album and not every photo has a proper story to tell so this was the perfect impetus to scrap a family shot in front of a landmark object!
All the photo really says is "We were here!".
No words required!

Layout - Universal - Jimjams

Supplies are from my March Counterfeit Kit with the addition of the "people" and arrow dies and loopy border punch borrowed from Ruth at the Bloggers' Weekend Retreat.  Thank you Ruth for letting me cut dozens of extra "people" for later layouts too!

Your next stop on the CKCBMBH is Angela (if you get lost along the way, the whole hop list is published today on the CKCB).

Gorgeous colours and I love the way you've coloured those little people :)

I've been waiting to see this appear! Love all the bright colours. I get really hung up thinking I need journalling on every page, but you're right - not every page in a holiday album has a new story. thanks for giving me 'permission' to leave it off sometimes!

Really like those little people - fun to have them as a border along with those arrows. Such fun colours and details.

Great title! and I do like your thinking (as always)..holiday pages are just right for letting the picture tell the story

Picture tells all...Love the thread clusters and all the other little extras. Just the right amount to make your layout pop. TFS

I really like the papers with this photo - perfect! Last time I got together with some friends to crop, I too created extra borders & things with their punches. :>)

I love your little people! And that border is fabulous!

Really pretty colourway, and I love the repetition of the yellow and the four people/four buttons (?). Aren't crop friends great? I'll be looking out for other places where the little people are going to pop up :).
