IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR CHALLENGE #1 FOR SKETCHES: CREATIVELY YOURS, PLEASE SCROLL DOWN TO THE NEXT POST.
Let's take a look at our inspiration kit, "Soda Shoppe" by Noel Mignon.
I love the variety of papers and embellishments and the pop of turquoise and yellow. There's something about it that feels very fun and youthful. It reminds me of my days as a girl scout at Camp Hoover in the remote northwest corner of New Jersey. Each Fall, we would take a weekend encampment and our trip would end with a walk to the local town's general store. Inside, there was a classic, old-fashioned penny candy counter with a little old lady who would patiently listen to all of our confectionery requests and fill brown paper bags with candy dots, Swedish fish, Pixie Sticks and Tootsie Rolls. It was always so exciting to make these purchases and even more exciting to eat all of the sweets on our walk back to camp.
So, in an attempt to recreate this experience and combine it with scrapbooking, let me present to you my March Counterfeit Kit...
Mr. Owl seems like he would fit in just right at Camp Hoover and with the Girl Scouts.
Paper straws reminiscent of Pixie Sticks and washi in a variety of candy colors will dress up a layout nicely.
Yellow distress ink, a chevron mask and some little white bags were an easy counterfeit of the ones in the inspiration kit and a perfect place to store your candy treats. Ka-ching! That will be 12 cents, please.
Epoxy "candy" dots resemble the ones in the inspiration kit. Close enough for me!
So many choices! So many sweet layouts to come!
Next stop will be Milissa.
