#CUPCAKE - A Counterfeit Layout

Hello everyone & Happy Friday!

I'm popping in today to share a layout I made using my August Counterfeit kit, Wishful Thinking.

Last week my photos from our San Francisco trip finally arrived from the Persnickety Prints headquarters. I took over a hundred photos and can't wait to scrapbook all of them but this one - a photo of me stuffing a cupcake in my mouth at Miette Bakery - jumped out right away. I knew it would be a perfect match with the fun, whimsical papers in my kit. Here's the layout I made …

This is a true counterfeit layout in every sense of the word because it involved a bit of "scrap-lifting". I was inspired by this layout by the amazingly talented Geralyn Sy. I love Geralyn's style and often find myself perusing her blog when I'm in need of scrappy inspiration. I loved the idea of having a cluster of  small embellishments and layers surrounding a square photo - I'm not usually a white space kinda girl but I think it really works on this layout, given the busyness of the upper half.  

Here are two close-up shots of the layers …

And, just in case you want to see how it all came together, I made a process video to share ...

If you're a fan of the puffy conversation stickers or the circle tag I used in the layout today is your lucky day!
