Counterfeit layouts

I love the counterfeit kit I put together this month. I had big hopes of getting a lot of layouts done with my great summer kit. As it turns out I have just been too busy to have much scrapping time. I have done five layouts this month. I have about six more layouts set up to make and I hope I can get them all done before the new kit reveal on the fifth. Here are three layouts that I made with my June kit and didn't post yet.

The first layout is from Disney. We go every year with my daughters dance school. This is the first year in the last six years that we aren't going with them. We are going on our own later in the year. I am using the time before we go to get some of the previous years layouts done. This was the group picture from our dinner at the Hoop-Dee-Doo-Revue.
The second layout is of my niece Katie. She is the only person on our side of the family with freckles and I have always wanted to take her to one of the freckle contests (you win by having the most freckles and she has tons) but she won't ever go. It was the first thing I thought of when I saw this old picture of her cute freckled face.

And the last layout is of this Easter. We took Cassie and Ben to the boardwalk which is our yearly Easter tradition. They got to ride some rides and see the Easter Bunny. We have gone every year since the girls were babies so I am happy that Cassie is doing the same thing with Ben.

I am not sure if you can tell from the picture, but I pleated the flowered paper so that it would look a little like ribbon. I am so happy that I was able to use some of my new Sassafras goodies on my layouts this month. It makes me feel less guilty about the shopping :)

Thank you for looking. Come back later in the week to see the rest of the layouts I am working on.

Wonderful! I like the orange and blue...very summery. The pleated paper is great. Mine never turns out right.
