Counterfeit Kit Blog Hop/ Bird is the Word-Wish


Welcome to this stop of the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog's October blog hop. This month our blog hop challenge was to alter stickers and use them in a different way. Here is my layout. This picture is just a silly shot of my 20 year old daughter sitting in my grandson's stroller. She asked me to push her around when we were out. I love that she is not embarrassed to act silly. I only pushed her across the parking lot, but it was a fun minute. 

I didn't have stickers in my kit this month so I added the puffy heart stickers and the cardstock hearts and circles. I used the cardstock circles and backed them with patterned paper. I then tore around the circles and layered the circles to make a basic flower. I punched holes into the puffy heart and used it as a button for the center of the flower. 
I use more of the hearts in the same way. I punched them and used them on buttons and threaded them with twine. I then layered them as a border under the photo. The side border is a BG paper ribbon. I just added a little bling to the centers of some of the flowers. 

I also made this layout for the Bird is the Word Challenge blog. Their challenge word is WISH. They also offer a sketch which I did use as my main inspiration. Here is the sketch link.



If you haven't joined the Counterfeit Kit Challenge you should. Our new inspiration kit will be up on November 5th. It is a great way to use up some of your supplies while making them feel new again.

Your next stop on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge October Blog Hop is Jessica. I am sure she will have something inspiring to show you today. Thank you for hopping by my blog. Feel free to follow along if you would like to.
