Challenge #1- Lucky 4

Our first challenge this month at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog is 4. I thought about four embellishments, four photos, four papers and I thought about skipping this challenge. Nothing seemed to come to me. Nobody has had a fourth birthday in a lot of years and I felt stuck. Then as I was flipping through photos I found this picture of us with our friends. Hello...there are four of us. Problem solved.
 Everything on my layout came from my counterfeit kit, except the red cardstock and orange dotted paper. They came from my scrap bin. I needed to add those colors because the color blocking on the title square was so bright against the blues and yellow. I used the clock to represent the time we spend with our friends, and I liked how it looked when I put the word four over the number four.

The lace trim was cut from the bottom of a patterned paper that had an odd girl with butterfly wings. I would never use that paper, but it was a gift from my husband. Unfortunately there are a lot of sheets of these odd papers. I think they are DCWV. They are made to look vintage, but they just aren't my style.

Thank you for looking. I hope you have a great day.

I think it all came together beautifully! What a great layout! And I didn't catch the "four" over the number till I read your blog! LOL! Great idea.

I like the thought process you went through with your choices and design - the clock is perfect. And I love that you found a way to use some of the paper that isn't really your style. I have a lot of such papers so you have inspired me to give them a go!
