Failed Forger

Sorry, sorry and many more humble apologies.
Halfway home from Durham this morning I had one of those heart stopping moments when I realised it was April 12th and I hadn't scheduled my post.
Luckily for me, our wonderful Guest Designer Maggie had made the effort and her post is up and running.
I can't quite believe that I have been in such a time warp lately.
It's actually my sister's wedding anniversary today too so how could I forget it was the 12th of the month!?

Anyway, onto my take on Challenge#2 for the Counterfiet Kit Blog
I don'y know about you but I have hundreds of the pocket page 3x4 cards and I'm always keen to use them but NOT on PL style pages.
The one I have used here is a bigger size.
The colour, in my opinion, was a bit bold so I use a piece of vellum from my kit to tone it down slightly.

You can't realy see from the photo but I punched a star through the vellum so the sun could be seen shining brighter.
Anyway, as I type, I am down on bended knee begging forgiveness from all you forgers out there for being so remiss and promise to do better next time.

I hope you will join in with our hop on April 24th.
Don't forget since the rules changed, you can use ANY of the challenges to join in.


  1. Super cute layout and I just love how you did on that background paper to show off the paper too. Life happens we all know that have fun ! :)

  2. Oh Lesley that is a fabulous page, I love how you've toned the colours down with velum - genius!

  3. Beautiful layout :) I loved that paper from Sarahs retreat all those years ago!

  4. Stunning, as have such an eye for the perfect details! Punching that star was yet another genius move. Would love to have this page in my hands to examine more closely :~D

  5. Fabulous page, love the swirls that complement the background paper & the way you've framed the photo. Using vellum to tone down the vibrant PL card was inspired!

  6. We'll forgive you - especially as I saw that punched starry sun almost a month ago!
    Fab page - great use of a tricky background PP and love the photo framing.

  7. ha ha! no worries - as you know, I'm in a totally different time-space-continuum right now. At least you remembered (I didn't even know!) and shared such a gorgeous page! I love vellum - just perfect here


Thank you so much for leaving me some love!
