New Layout with my Counterfeit Kit

I've really been loving instagram pics and the Rhonna Designs app I have on my phone.  As far as printing, though, it's been a bit hit and miss.  You can print your instagram pics at Walmart, but they have to be uploaded to instagram, and I don't want to upload ALL my photos to instagram!  And of course, I don't have a Walmart in the near vicinity, so I tried emailing the photos to myself, downloading them to my computer, then printing them out on photo paper.  Sometimes it works great, and sometimes the photos end up all pixelated.  If anyone knows a better way, I would love some advice on this!

So here's a layout I put together using my May Counterfeit Kit, some instagram pics, and a sketch from Let's Get Sketchy:
I deviated from my kit a bit to use a new Dylusions stencil, some texture paste and Dylusions spray.  I don't know, the result is a little out there compared to what I'm used to, but I think I like it...

And here's the sketch I used (love how everything's on an angle!): 
That's it for now, thanks for looking!

May Counterfeit Kit

So I'm a little late to the party, but I did make a counterfeit kit for May and I'm intending to use it, starting right now!  The kit I wanted to copy is this beautiful kit from Paper Camellia:

And here's what I came up with:
If you're wondering what my process was, it goes a little something like this:  see that scrap of vintage camera paper?  I started with that and matched up papers from there.  

I really liked the die cuts that came in the inspiration kit, so I used my silhouette to make my own:

 You can also see the library pockets and journaling cards I made to match the original kit.

And here's a pile of scraps that I could not make pretty no matter what I tried.  Hopefully I'll be able to use all of them up this month!
And that's about it!  How 'bout you, are you joining in with a counterfeit kit?  Leave a link in the comments and I'll pop by to see!
