Counterfeit Kit March Challenge #2

The Counterfeit Kit March Challenge #2 is to mix at least 3 different patterned papers together, inspired by the designer Vera Bradley. I often mix patterns together on pages with a cardstock or plain background, so to really challenge myself I used a background paper with a bold pink chevron pattern...

Happy to be Together:


I made sure that some patterns were bold, some subtle, some big, and some small, so that the patterns didn't overwhelm my photo. 

I am pleased to have finally used this 'Happy to be Together' chipboard piece as my title - it's been in my stash for years and years:


And my Shrinkles bird looks good next to some layered up Prima flowers and Crate Paper Brad (I attached the bird using glossy accents):


I love how bright and busy this layout is, as it reminds me of that summer day. Though since I finished and photographed the layout I've remembered more details about the day - like how me and my daughter didn't like the food as she is picky and I was heavily pregnant... and how she didn't want to go home because there was a path-maze that she was walking round-and-round for ages... I need to fit some more journaling somewhere!

How about it - will you have a go at mixing lots of patterns on your next page? 

I'm off shoe shopping for the kids today... wish me luck! x

Did you find shoes OK? :)

Lovely layout - I had that chipboard 'happy together' embellishment in my stash for ages too! I eventually used it on a LO of me and The Doctor together :)

Hope the shoe shopping wasn't too stressful. Isn't it fun when you can find a place for a bit of stash you've held onto for ages. I like the combination of papers against that chevron background.

Sneaking in more journaling is a common problem here - the back gets used often :)

What a great photograph, and I like how the patterns you chose (geometric) keep the pink from being too feminine. Really well done!

super adorable! AND YOU KNOW WHAT i DO (oops) if I remember something about the photo? I just write it all on the back so my kids can rad it later (sometimes I get lengthy)

Lovely page Jennifer - isn't it great when scrapping a photo prompts even more memories ... I need all the help I can get ;-)
