counterfeit kit club: clearly, a challenge

today i am participating in the first challenge of the month with the counterfeit kit club.  the challenge is to use a clear element on the page.  let me tell you, having a kit AND being told what to do with it makes for some quick scrapbooking!

photos: i am starting to work with the photos from our trip to visit my sister and fam on vacation in north carolina.  the photos are all so gorgeous and easy to work with.  i am really just going in order through the stack as each set i have pulled is so inspiring.

story: g had to explore the creek right away and riley was there for every step of it, she just didn't want any part of the crawdads g found except for this teeny tiny baby one.  she declared it cute, carefully put her finger on it for a half second, and then said she hoped it would never grow up.

design: i went with an oversized title on this one to help immediately draw attention to the tiny subjects in my photos.

technique: for the clear element of the challenge, i scattered some sequins in a 4x6 page protector and stitched it to the page.  i think it goes so nicely with the title.  i love when the design of a page helps to tell the story so well.

product: a hodgepodge of really old and really new items from my stash that i pulled together as guest designer with the counterfeit kit club.
