"Remember the Details" for Scrap Much?

Hey folks, hope you are having an enjoyable weekend.  I finished this page today and I'm quite pleased with how it turned out!  I love the black background paper with all the brights - don't the photos pop?

All the supplies I used came from my January Counterfeit Kit.  I also used this sketch from Scrap Much?:

Here are a few close ups, first of the journaling:
And one of the embellishments:
I really love these photos of Brenna!  I know I used the Rhonna Designs app to get the beautiful frames, but I can't remember if I used anything else to mess with the colours and contrast.  I do love that Rhonna Designs app, though - I highly suggest you check it out!

"Captured" with CKC and LGS

Yay, first page of the year, completed!  I used my January Counterfeit Kit to pull this one together, and a sketch from Let's Get Sketchy:

That's my boy, Nolan, before and after getting his braces on this summer.  Of course, when I asked him to smile, this is the reaction I got!

Closer shots of the journaling for your enjoyment:

I really like how the colours of the papers go with the photos!

Here's the sketch I used:
As you can probably tell, I didn't deviate much from the sketch - it seemed to go with my photos perfectly as is.

Anyway, thanks for stopping by, and I hope to see you here again soon!

January Counterfeit Kit

Hey everyone, hope you had a wonderful holiday season!  Ours was both good and bad, but maybe I'll get to that later.  First off, here is the beautiful kit the Design Team at Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog chose for us to copy this month:
Wow, I really love the soft colours of this kit, so that's what I let inspire me.

And now let me introduce you to the products I've put together for my January Counterfeit Kit:

In the back row I've got some Echo Park "Everyday Eclectic", middle row is Basic Grey, Prima, Fancy Pants, and Kaisercraft, and the front row is all card stock from CTMH.

Then I have more paper!  (I seem to have gone a little overboard with the paper this month!)
Back row is MME, Carta Bella and Authentique.  Middle row is all Simple Stories.  Front row is CTMH.

I had a bit more trouble with embellishments this month.  Nothing I had in my stash really jumped out at me, so this is what I ended up with:

I've got some wood veneers that were lost for about a year and I finally found, some cork, washi, chipboard, a stamp set, tags and inks (the Distress Stain is "antiqued bronze" which is as close to gold as I had).  I also pulled together a bunch of previously die cut pieces that kind of go with a camera/captured moment theme. I reserve the right to pull various embellies from my stash as the month progresses, because I can't help but feel that this here is a rather sad assortment!

Well I think I'll leave my Christmas story for another time, as I really want to get this posted so I can play with my yummy kit!  Thanks for dropping by!
