Watch Out, Alligators! - a lo

This is my take on our 1st April's challenge at Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog, which is a sketch challenge. We were given #28 sketch at Pretty Little Studio:
My photos were too large, so I used only 2 photos and one journaling block, rather than 4 blocks on the original sketch. I also replaced the semicircles banner with a BG die-cut, where I stamped (a Prickley Pair Rubber Stamp) and added a few buttons. The journaling stamp is Autumn Leaves. All the supplies are from my counterfeit kit, and I only added the corrugated cardboard as matting of the photos. I added it to go along with the boyish look and theme and as a contrast to the kind of 'girly' dp and colors of the whole page.
Here are some close-ups on the details:


Actually, this is the 1st lo I've made with my counterfeit kit, and my biggest challenge with this kit was to use all those pink/soft colors dp with photos of my very energetic boys.  After making a few layouts with my kit, I can say that I was able to get out of my comfort zone, and I really coped with this challenge.  I even like how this lo turned out... LOL
So how about giving this sketch a try with your counterfeit kit? Don't have counterfeit kit yet? well, it's not too late to join us and make your own kit. You can make it big or small as you like. you can even make just a page kit. Challenge your self to create your own counterfeit kit from  your own supplies. You can find all the details on the CKC blog, and read the 'Hints & Tips' page and the 'About Us' page to figure out how it works. I tried last month and must say I'm totlly addicted :). It feels so good to dig into my stash and finally use some of my hoarded supplies.
Thank you for stopping by and please leave my a comment. I love reading what you think of my work (actually, that's why I have a blog... LOL).
האתגר הראשון בבלוג של Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog הוא אתגר סקיצה. אהבתי את הפשטות של הסקיצה הזאת, והתאמתי אותה לתמונות שלי, ולכן יש בה רק שתי תמונות ובלוק ג'ורנלינג אחד.  למעשה זה היה הדף הראשון שהכנתי מקיט החיקוי שלי, ומבחינתי האתגר הגדול בקיט הזה היה להשתמש בדפים שהם  יותר 'של בנות' - פרחוניים ובצבעי פסטל הכוללים ורוד, עם תמונות של שתי פצצות האנרגיה הגבריות שיש לי בבית :))). כדי למתן במעט את ה'נשיות' של הדפים והצבעים, הוספתי גם קרטון גלי. אני אוהבת את התוצאה.
תודה על תשומת הלב!

I like your take on the sketch, and I think the pink against the sand colored background works perfectly.

So pretty! I just copied your idea of using corrugated paper as a mat piece on another page. Thanks for the idea!
