Blog Hop

Welcome to the Countrfeit Kit Challenge Blog Hop!  You should be coming to me from Ashley's blog.  No matter how you arrived here, if you would like to start at the beginning of the hop, just pop on over to the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog, where it all begins.
Our challenge for this hop was to go to the blog of our favorite manufacturer and find something that inspires us and CASE (copy and share everything) it.  I went to the blog of Echo Park, my current favorite, and found this delightful mini album by Carole Maurin.

Below is my version of mini album, starting with the cover. While the ribbon used is retired Stampin' Up!,
all the papers in this project come from a totally boy set of papers by K & Company.

I even cut out pieces of some of the pages to create page accents.

I hope you enjoyed my project, and won't you please continue on to the next stop in the blog hop to Lisa's blog. 
Thanks for stopping by!!!

This is a simple layout I created using papers in my kit that I created for the Counterfeit Kit Challenge.
I am still scrapping pictures from several years ago.  The little boy in the picture is now 15 years old. I obviously don't scrap chronologically.

Thanks for stopping by, and I would love for you to leave me a comment,

Cool Guys

Finally, I have had time to update my blog.  I have either been busy or not feeling well, and therefore I have neglected my blog for the last several days.
Today, however I was able to sit down a create a page while at a friend's house.  We always like to do crafty things when we get together.
To make this page I used the sketch from Sketchy Thursdays.  Their sketch was a two page sketch, but I only used the right side of the sketch.  I usually only do one page lay-outs.
Also, everything except the journaling strips came out of my kit that I made for the Counterfeit Kits Challenge.

This is a picture of my sons when they were 3 and 6.  Now they are 12 and 15.  I still take their pictures, but there is nothing  like those sweet pictures when they were little.  I miss those days, but at the same time I am enjoying our time now.  I have been blessed with really good, well-behaved, intelligent children, and I cherish them every day.
