Who Me?!

Jimjams - Layout detail - layered papers
Welcome to the start of June's Members' Blog Hop from the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog .
I chose the third challenge this month to line up my embellishments on my layout, using photos I took last month whilst visiting No.1 Son and his lovely girlfriend in their new home.
They have two amazing Bengal kittens, full of energy and personality and we had a great time playing with them (though the tom doesn't seem to know how to play with retracted claws!!!).  It didn't take them long to commandeer the two chairs we'd brought up from our house to theirs.

Jimjams - Layout - Who Is Sitting In MY Chair

Having liked the effect of layering punched vellum circles on my previous page, I layered the vellum from my June Counterfeit Kit over one of the patterned papers.   This page started life as the June 1st  sketch from Stuck?! Sketches - there's still time to link up if you fancy a go.  As for the lining up ... those eyelets are in a straight line!

I wonder which of this month's challenges will feature on the next stop on the hop: Tina'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 S J Crafts June Challenge and be in with a chance of a prize ... check it out ... and check out the winner & favourites from May's challenge  here !!

Very different to your usual style but I love it all the same. Great pops of colour and cute little clusters :)

I love it! You have inspired me with the die cut letters and those banners!

This is cleverly done on many levels - the dots, the title, the placement, and the eyelets - love it.

This is so colourful and bright - a lot of fun. Bengal kittens are fun too - but they can be a handful (as I'm sure you probably know from Karen's blog!)
Love the spots by the way. Really fab!
