Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog Hop {March}

Hello! Hello! Welcome to this month's Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog Hop. Hopefully, you have arrived from Lisa's lovely blog - Recklinghausen Musings If you haven't come across the Counterfeit Kit Challenge before it might be worth starting there - it's definitely worth the time. It's full of amazing challenges and inspiration!

Challenges like these ones -

Challenge #1: Border Craze: Get crazy with borders
Challenge #2: Irish Challenge: Celebrate St Patrick's Day with some creativity!
Challenge #3: Desk Challenge: Take inspiration from the state of your desk

I chose to work on the very first challenge and, after folding down a sheet of cardstock to create a lower border on my layout, I went to town adding die-cuts, hand-stamped embellishments, bling and stickers to create a border that's full of fun and colour. 

To balance out the layout, I also added a smaller border to the top, right hand corner - using up even more of my sticker sheet. It feels so nice to have finally broken into that sticker sheet from Everyday Elements. I've certainly had it long enough! 

Hidden down the left hand side is a small pocket, created by folding the top sheet of cardstock. I've hidden some journalling in there to tell this London Story properly.

Now, I'm excited to follow the blog-hop and see what other counterfeiters have been creating over the last month, starting with the next stop on the blog-hop, Gemma over at My Not So Simple Life.

Thanks so much for stopping by, please do say hello before you say goodbye! x
