Christmas Crackers

Welcome to the start of February's Members' Blog Hop from the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog .  I chose the second challenge this month to make a fun background of angled patterned papers for my page.

Jimjams - Layout - Christmas Crackers

Jimjams - Layout detail - triple stitching embellishment clusterThree patterned papers from my February Counterfeit Kit matched well with a silly photo from our Christmas crop and the addition of some glittery alphas, bright red pearls and triple zig-zag stitching added some textural appeal.

I wonder which of this month's challenges will feature on the next stop on the hop at Julene's blog.

If you get lost whilst hopping the full order is published on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog today.

P.S. There's still time to have a go with the SJ Crafts  February Sketch and be in with a chance of a prize ... check it out

Oh Wow did you stitch every join on that background? I keep thinking I'll do some stitching but clearing enough space and setting up the machine is such a faff.
Great LO.

I love how you treated the background like a crazy quilt - so creative! Also love that your journaling is at the edges. I had fun studying everyone's hats, too! Is that our own Lesley next to you???
