Before we get started on the blog hop, I need to announce the winner of my blog candy from the Jumpin June Bug Swap. Random.org choose comment 10 which is CAMMI! Please send me your mailing address so I can get the candy out to you later on this week! NOW it is time for the Counterfeit Blog Hop!
Good morning! Three more days until I am 30! WOW! I hope you came from TRICIA, aren't her creations wonderful!? If you are just happening upon me then please start here at the Counterfeit Kit blog hop for some awesome inspiration and so much more! When you are done here you will go visit the magnificent JESSICA.
This month we were challenged to do an "I" statement page. For more information on this please check it out HERE. I decided to focus my page on journaling use most of the prompts that Susanne provided. I wish my handwriting was better, but don't we all? I still think it is important to include it.
For this page I used one of the chipboard mini album pages from my add on (I did not end up making the mini for a friend, I did some other things). I painted it with white acrylic paint, stamped polka dots with brown acrylic paint and then used the eraser of a pencil on my desk to do the bigger pink polka dots. It was very messy, something I usually do not do! Pink chalk ink edges the side. 1.75 and 1.5 inch circles (9) house my journaling and some embellishments. I FINALLY used the awesome pink pleated ribbon YAY! On the side of the photo (which I will have hubby take on my 30th birthday) are some word stickers from my main kit that remind me of me right now. The thickers for the title are grey, but they came out looking black (sorry about that!). Lots of bling and my trusty Martha Stewart butterfly punch using scraps from my kit (more bling on their bodies) and we are done! VERY girly but I like it!
