Last CKC for March 2012 'Birthday Bash'

Good morning,

just a quickie to share my last layout using my Counterfeit Kit, I think 4 is plenty!! I have loved being constrained to a few bits and bobs and having to make it work - I think it has pushed me to make more rather than relying on  what is my stash :0)

So the last one was all about playing with paint and inks......lovely!!

The photo is of my brother's birthday back in September, our birthdays are only 4 days apart so we share a celebration, which means 2 birthday cakes as I love Passion Cake and he loves Dundee!! Good old Mum :0)

No sketch to draw inspiration from just went where the mood took me.....

Tattered Angels Chalkboard Mist, Alcohol Ink, Crackle Paint, White Acrylic Paint...all mixed together!!! The paper was die cut with a Nellie Snellen die.

I originally had the phrase stuck to blue felt bit didn't like it. I peeled it off and some of the fibres stuck to it (really like the look!) The speech bubble stamp is Pink Paislee

Loving the Prima background stamp that I got in the sale :0)
Thanks so much for looking,
