Selfie Sidekick - Counterfeit Kit Challenge October Challenge #1

Hello, hello! Happy Friday to you! Are you ready for the weekend? I sure am! I am looking forward to getting to sleep in a bit for a couple of days! It's looking like it might be a rainy weekend, so I plan on getting quite a bit of scrapping done!

It's time for our first challenge of the month at Counterfeit Kit Challenge today. We want to know what your scrappy superpower is and use a selfie!

Scrappy superpower...hmmm...I don't really know what my scrappy superpower is...I don't really layer a ton on every layout...I only fussy cut when I have to...I do outline a lot on my layouts - just not this one...I do use sketches for almost every layout so I guess my superpower could be Sketch Queen, and I do like to keep things clean and simple, so maybe I am the Queen of Clean and Simple...I'll keep working on it, but in the meantime, here is my layout:

I could not wait to use these papers from my October Counterfeit Kit (you can see my kit here) and I knew they would be perfect for these photos of me and my youngest son from a couple of years ago. Everything on this layout is from my kit with the exception of the alphas, the puffy hearts, enamel dots. Those items are always close at hand and I rarely put them in my kits.

Shane and I spend a lot of time together and not only is he my selfie sidekick, but he is my sidekick in life. He is (almost) always up for anything and he never fusses - at least not too much - when I ask him to take a picture with me! I plan on adding a bit of journaling to my layout in the blue space below the photos, but I have to figure out what I want to say in that amount of space!

Here is the sketch from Sketch N Scrap that I used. It is from their 5th Birthday Bash (Sketch #5, May 30, 2017):

Here are a couple of close-ups of my embellishment clusters:

Head on over to Counterfeit Kit Challenge to see what kind of scrappy superpowers the rest of the design team has. We would love to see your selfies along with your superpowers.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! Have a fantastic Friday!


  1. I love your page! And I like your Super powers. I would also say you are super at your clusters, because they are "just right." Not too much, but not too little. I always study them because mine either seem to "fall short" or "go overboard." Ha ha! Enjoy your weekend!

  2. Your Super Power is making amazing layouts! At least that's what I think! ::wink:: great color scheme and use of that heart PP, you added just enough to see the pretty pattern but not too much to overwhelm the page!

  3. You are Queen of Clean & Simple! I thought Abby was you in that picture!

  4. Adorable layout! Just the right amounts of everything: photos, color combo, patterns, papers, and embellishments! Fabulous!

  5. I just LOVE this color combo and that heart paper, Lori! Great take on the sketch too! :)
