The first challenge of the year on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog is to make a project with a list of the ten (or more) things that make you smile. I love making lists so this was a perfect challenge for me.
I started by cutting three strips from the "Happy" paper I included in my "A Little Bit of Lovely" January CKC kit and adhering them to a 12x12 sheet of white cardstock. I added eight 2" square photos and tucked in some circles cut from the Pinkfresh Studios paper that was the basis for my kit. Next, I attached my journaling strips, scalloped border stickers for the top and bottom, and my title.
My last touch was to add a few enamel dots and puffy stickers to the colored circles, keeping a tone-on-tone look, and then filling in a few of the hearts on the patterned paper to add just a little more color.
I hope you give this challenge a try. It's a fun, quick and easy way to preserve a little snapshot of your life right now. Don't forget to add your project to the monthly link-up so we can all see what's making you smile!
