40 Winks

Welcome to the final post of the June Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog Members' Blog Hop (or CKCBMBH for short)!  If you've been hopping along with other counterfeiters (and reached me from Angela) then you will already know that we are sharing the inspiration we took from farmers markets.

I made a card for this challenge earlier in the month with my June Counterfeit Kit and today I am sharing a layout reflecting the colourful displays and varied textures (and little flags stuck into produce) that farmers markets offer:


That's a terrible (but typical) photo of Hubby on holiday:  I like to get everyone up early to make the most of the day (and beat the queues at Disney) ... but he likes to catch up on his sleep.  Hubby puts up with the dawn breakfasts providing he gets some siesta time later in the day.
ETA: Those aren't border punched strips - they're (the yellow) part of a sheet of BG laser cut doilies from my June Kit.

If you've missed anyone on the CKCBMBH you can find the full list over on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog - why not join in yourself next month?!

I love the strips of borders. Did you punch those?

Looks great Jemma. I can identify with hubby.Sometimes you need 40 winks.

Love the way everyone has interpreted the challenge in their own way. Afternoon naps are de rigeur for my DH when we're on vacation, too. Great page, Jemma.

Love this!The yellow strips give the page a lot of texture, and the colors of the buttons do remind me of a farmer's market.

I can also relate to the sleeping hubby...I'm an early riser, and he prefers to sleep late, especially on a vacation. I think you've worked out a good compromise!

love the interpretation of the prompt and cutting up that lace paper looks so great!

Wondering how you did those cool borders! Very effective ... Yes, it can be difficult when partners have different body rhythms!

Love that photo Jemma!
My husband hates early mornings and his idea of a holiday is a lie in. But I'm with you. I left mine in bed when I saw the sun rise over the Grand Canyon. I mean!! How can you lie in bed and miss an opportunity like that?!
I think mine would prefer to miss breakfast than have a siesta!

Last but not least and certainly worth hopping to the end.
Love the doily cuts, they could also be mistaken for washi!
Always envious of you button collection :)

Love it! What a great memory to document!

Love the layout and the photo. For some weird reason I wake up super early on vacation even if it's a do nothing kind of day then of course I am exhausted by 9pm.

What a fantastic photo! if that doesn't say "vacation" I don't know what does :)
Love your title cluster accent, too.

LOL! We always say, "There's no rest for the weary at Disney!" My hubby is similar to yours in that he likes to get a slow start. Love the title!
