Counterfeit Kit Layout #1 - Sketchy Business

Hello Everyone! Today I'm excited to share the first of many layouts created with my April Counterfeit Kit, Croissants in Paris. When I saw this sketch over on the Chickaniddy Crafts Blog I immediately fell in love with it. I mean, it's got hearts, banners, square 4x4 photos ... what's not to love?! I pulled out my kit and got straight to work.

Here's my take on it .... 

This is one of my favorite photos of my husband and I, taken during an afternoon date at nearby Granville Island. When I found it in my stash of photographs I couldn't believe I hadn't scrapbooked it yet.

The Counterfeit design team has selected some really amazing sketches to inspire you this month. There are 9 sketches total and they are all up on the blog (here) for you to use as a starting point to get those creative juices flowing. However, just in case the sketches we selected aren't your cup of tea, here are a few sketch blogs I like to frequent when I'm in need of some scrappy motivation ...

Sketch N Scrap - 5 new sketches are posted each month for both cards and layouts. Prizes offered!
Life Paper Scrapbook - 1 new sketch posted each month for layouts. Prizes offered!
Stuck?! Sketches - 2 new sketches posted each month. Prizes offered!

I hope you're inspired to find a sketch that speaks to you and get scrapping!!
