Making the Most of My Kit

Welcome to the start of the March Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog Members' Hop .  I didn't join in with the challenges this month, but took inspiration from fellow Master Forger Lisa's Whimsical Musings blog and used up some eyelets (WM#203).

Layout - Croc Encounters - Jimjams

I'm obviously out of practice because one or two got a bit squashed ... Making Memories made the hardest eyelets ever!!!!  The photos are ancient ones from 2004 and mean that I am very nearly finished with our Disney album ... but not quite.  We had a smashing if noisy airboat ride around Lake Tohopekaliga looking for crocodilian wildlife ... it dawned on me after doing the title that technically these were the alligator branch of the family!!  I added some toning washi tapes to just one sheet of 6x6 paper and one 4x6 tag from my March Counterfeit Kit ... it'll never get used up at this rate!

Next on the hop is a newcomer to our Counterfeit family, so please give her a warm welcome and plenty of comment lurve by popping over to see Sally.  The full hop list is published on the CKCB today.

Gosh you made me wonder about the last time I used any eyelets LOL
The LO is lovely and it is great that you were able to create such a fab look with a minimum of stash.

Great color combination and yay to you for using the eyelets! I like the way you underlined the group photo with them and those washi tape pennants are fun too.

Margie said...

I love the colors for this theme, and the white makes it feel bright and fresh! Good job for using what you did!

Lisa said...

Ah! The eyelets! There they are and I have to say, they look fabulous! Really great and totally up to date and in tune with your clean style of scrapping - I'm feeling the pressure more and more now! Great layout and just goes to show how good a layout can be with minimal supplies.

What fun photos! And good for you getting old stuff done - I have a hard enough time keeping up with current photos. Love the use of the eyelets and the bright page!

Great idea to add the washi accents! (I smashed a few eyelets, too, for this prompt)

Tina Campbell said...

You rocking the eyelets again love how you used them as border elements with the pictures. So cool :) Love the theme of the layout and the washi is a nice touch here and there :)

Julene Matthews said...

That's a great page. M&D bought me a new eyelet setting kit this week. I'd best start using it.

My not so simple life said...

Great layout and well done you using brads!

Kelly Sroka said...

Cute page! I have dozens of eyelets that need to be used up too!

Chidkid said...

Lovely page. No one is going to worry about the title except you! Lol

The Scrapbook Lady UK said...

Great page! Love the layout of photos jx

Susanne said...

Woohoo, eyelets!! Nice page, the touch of washi makes the eyelets seem right up to date.

I love this! The eyelets caught my eye right away. I used to use those on every single page. I had tons of them and then we had that fire where I lost almost all of my scrapbooking stuff. I only have a few eyelets now so I don't use them very often. They weren't on my list of most important to replace. LOL!!!

I can't remember ever buying or using an eyelet, but somehow I still have a small bag of them! They snuck in when I wasn't looking - like the rest of my stash, eh?

Hope you had fun playing along with Lisa's challenges! x
