01/06/18 - "Your Order..." / -Jan '18 CKC-

Good Morning!
Happy Saturday!
I'm happy today because... it's Saturday, LOL!
Also because of this (simple but fun) layout: 
"Your Order Has Been Shipped"

"Though I posted this on Instagram on 11.26.17, in anticipation of Christmas gifts being delivered, this is actually me...ALL YEAR!"
A page for my December Not-so-Daily album
Page size is approximately 6x9
This is a Pre-December page that I wanted to include in the album
(yes, I'm doing a December 'Daily'; more on that later!)
This is my first project using my "Counterfeit Challenge Blog" kit for January 2018.
- which is my first time EVER playing along w/ the blog
Here's the link to that post: My Jan CKC Kit 
Also my first project for the Anything Goes Challenge
- Counterfeit Kit Challenge; Week #1
(I'm using my counterfeit kit for 2 different monthly challenges)

This is the criteria for the AGC Challenge:
According to the Chinese Zodiac, 2018 is the year of the Dog
The DOG - Chinese name: GOU
Ranking Order - Eleventh (11)
Fixed Element - Metal

This is how we were instructed to apply the info above to our WEEKLY CHALLENGE project:
1. Use the word DOG as your layout's topic.
2. Put an 11 somewhere on your project.
3. Use an earth tone neutral palette for your color scheme.
4. And include metal embellishments.

Again, for this project we could ONLY use our Counterfeit Kit.
Here are the ways I met the criteria:
- The word DOG inspired me to scrap this photo of a meme w/ a Pug on it
- "11" is in the journaling
- Used Earth tones: Green and Beige
- Metal embellishment is the arrow paperclip
(which I probably would have never used had it not been for this challenge)
- I used only my Counterfeit Kit items

I had fun tackling this challenge w/out having my full arsenal off scrappy stuff to choose from; it definitely made me think!
