08/08/18 - CKC August/Projects #1 and #2

Good Morning to you!
Just stopping by to show off a couple of layouts I created w/ my August Counterfeit Challenge Kit.
As per the rules, everything on both is from my kit and only my kit:
-First up:
Midori Travelers Notebook
2 page spread
"July 1st, 2018
This is how my husband notifies me that, "Spain is winning!"

W/ a Snap Chat-Dog-Filtered-wrapped-in-a-Spain-souvenir photo.
I was born in Spain so we cheer for both the USA and Spain.

Spain did not win the World Cup"

My husband sent me this silly photo and I knew I just had to scrap it for the "Fly Your Flag" challenge at
Basically it's a challenge for showing off your National Pride.
I very rarely have a reason to scrap Spain so I enjoyed this.
Funny thing... 2 years ago we went to Spain and I have like a bazillion photos...but only like 2 of them are scrapped, LOL (Because there are a bazillion of them!)

Design Details:
I used 2 PL Cards on this:
1. As a journaling spot
The 2nd I punched 1 circle and a couple of half-circles out of and used them as embellishments (the Yellow Patterned circles)

The PL cards are super old, part of the Becky Higgins "Kraft" Project Life Kit.


2nd Layout
12x12 Traditional
W/ Non-traditional Colors for the theme: Fourth of July
Heads up my scanner is (always) dirty so the "ink" smudges you may see here and there on this layout are not intentional, LOL
Seriously IDK what's up w/ my scanner!

"The 4th, 2018"
"This was the first 4th we didn't see fireworks. David had to be at work at 3AM so he went to bed early and Madi and I didn't want to watch the neighborhood fireworks w/out him"

"06.30.18 - Early 4th w/ the neighbors. David made chocolate brownies and lemon cupcakes w/ strawberry frosting."

"-Corn on the Cob                   -Steak
-Salmon & Veggie Kabobs        -Meatless Burgers
July 4th, 2018"

Finished off my Pink Enamel Dots on this - a bittersweet moment for me.
Also the polka dot PP is from an old SMASH book; remember those?!
I'm so happy that CKC asked me to Guest Design because I forgot just how much fun it is to create layouts w/ only a "handful" of supplies! Especially when some of the supplies are ancient... forces you to finally use them!

As a reminder of how it all works:
Here is the link to my kit: Doreena's Aug Counterfeit Kit

I would love if you played along!


  1. These are all awesome! And I learned something new about you, I didn't know you were born in Spain!! :)

  2. Love these layouts!!! you are awesome :D

  3. I had no idea you were born in Spain! When did you move to the US? Tell us more! (And scrap those Spain vacation pics!) Love your July 4th page - I'm drooling.

  4. I can see influences of the original inspiration kit for August Counterfeit Kit in your layouts, so kudos for job well done!

  5. Love, love, love these layouts! I've had a TN for awhile that I haven't done anything with yet. Here lately I have really been wanting to get it out and see what I can do with it. Your TN layout may just be what I needed to see to get started!

  6. wonderful layouts! Love the snapchat photo - so cute.
