April Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog Hop

A big Texas HOWDY to you today!  I am so excited to be participating in the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Members Blog Hop!  A monthly feature to see the wonderful layouts, cards, etc made this month!  I am always blown away by the creativity seen in members creations!

You should have arrived here from Virginia's Blog.  Her blog is absolutely fabulous!  I wish I had the speed to create as she does!!!

I struggle with creativity and sometimes draw a total block with a new item that comes on the market.  Such an item is Washi Tape for me when it came on the market.  April Challenge #1 was a must do for me!  The challenge was to choose the blog design from one of the Master Forgers as inspiration.  Lesley's blog back ground is mounds of Washi Tape....columns and columns of Washi Tape.  I chose six rolls of washi to again try to use the tape.  This was certainly the perfect challenge to do so.  I decided to take some Carta Bella cardstock and make my own background using one of the stencils and washi tape I chose for my kit.

I also decided to use as evidence from the CSI Case File 112, something puffy!  I just love Yo-Yos and made two from Moda Simply Style 2x2 square cloth.

Yet, the most treasured element of the page is my daughter, Lynn, with a Selfie Photo!  The BEST thing I ever did in my life is to have my two beautiful children Lynn and James now both mid-20's.

Thank you for hopping in and your next stop is CKCB April Guest Designer Maggie.  I love love Maggie's creations!

If you have jumped into the middle of our hop by entering my blog here's the entire list!

great use of washi and what a great use of the inspiration! Yes, Lesley appears to be drowning in the rolls but they are so darn cute, aren't they??
Lovely layout and the selfie is a good one!

Great page (lovely photo helps!) and well done on breaking into the washi (something I struggle with a little, but then I don't own half a shop's worth like Lesley).
