Hop Hop Hop! Time to Hop along with CKCB!
Happy counterfeit kit blog hop day! You should have come from our awesome and superbly talented guest designer, Julie Ann, if not please head on over to CKCB to get started on this awesome blog hop!
This is my take. I promise I started with the sketch and had all intentions of doing it EXACTLY like shown as I think Allison's style is just like mine in the sense of lots of photos, minimum embellishments. However it did not turn out that way and that is just fine. See I believe that sketches are a starting point for everyone (or at least me) and where you go from there is all up to you and your pictures. The bones are about the same but I did not want to crop my pictures this time around so I substituted those and moved the journaling from the top to the bottom portions of each page. I had quite a bit to say surprisingly.
These pictures are from our first ever National Cherry Blossom festival and I must say it will be a tradition as they were so gorgeous. Some of the shots we captured that day truly look just like the expensive post cards they were selling, only better! Lots of spray ink, soft pink, and stamping. The gorgeous cherry blossoms are from Wild Orchid crafts and a great friend (thanks Tiara) sent them to me knowing I had these pictures.
So now hop on over to and see what she has done with this amazing sketch. I bet no two creations are the same, that is another wonderful aspect of using sketches!
Now hop on over to the wonderful MELISSA to see what she came up with for you!
