Counterfeit kit Challenge #2

 For challenge #2 we are asked to use one of the sketches on Cindy's Pinterest page here 

https://www.pinterest.com/cindyf2456/ckc-january-2022/

I have chosen this layout to scraplift.


I've used the 2 crate papers from my kit, Maggie Holmes Instafriends. It is actually 2 sides of the one paper.


I kept the other layers as neutral as I could so that the photo stands out. The 3 strips of yellow on the left were hand stitched using lots of embroidery thread.(Another mission I'm on is to use all that).

The flowers are from Autumn Lane. The journal circle is from Jillibean soup cardstock stickers.


I'm also entering this on Challenge YOUrself where the theme is friends working together.

As these are my 2 best friends, I think this qualifies.

We originally met in Rotaract (junior Rotary) where we did many community projects together, everything from painting houses to selling chocolate bars as fundraising.bArbara and I are travel buddies and problem solve when things go wrong,including famously getting stranded in Greece.

Hope you like it.
