Getaway - A Counterfeit Kit Challenge layout
|Story:||One weekend in February, hubby and I got away to the “Bourbon Classic” in Louisville, Kentucky. It’s a bourbon "education" and gourmet food tasting event. This was our second year to attend – it makes a nice weekend away. We learned a lot!|
The top photo there is actually an advertising postcard depicting one of our favorite brands of bourbon. The bottom two photos are us having fun with the red penguins at the hotel – and I will admit to being a “tea” tippler prior to posing there on the right one evening. And, call me paranoid, but one of his friends followed us to lunch the next day.
|Style:||I chose the balloon paper because it seemed to symbolize the idea of getting away the best. I used an old sketch from Paula Girarde for Get It Scrapped. (And racked up some Calvinball points to boot.) I adapted the sketch to include lots of die-cuts from my kit in a border down the right side.|
I copied another old sketch at the same time – you will see that soon. I think I like using these older less detailed sketches, they push me to make it my own.
