Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog Hop!

It's that time again...the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog Hop! This month the theme is "The I's Have It," where each counterfeiter shows how they interpret the challenge incorporating the letter "I." If you have come from Milissa's Blog, you're on the right track. (You can refer to the list below or return to the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog if you get lost along the way.)


With that out of the way, I present to you my interpretation of the challenge. I don't usually do layouts just about myself, but since I had a birthday photo from last month that I wanted to scrap, I thought I would give it a try. The picture was a fun one of the Angry Birds that my DH got for me. Pair that up with the calendar page from Fancy Pants Designs that I have now included in two counterfeit kits, I was determined to use it this time!








I found some fun number/calendar stamps by Autumn Leaves at a recent used stamp sale at a LSS too. I found these were perfect for the calendar blocks. And the title, since it was my 29th birthday recently, seemed appropriate. :) You can always hope to not turn 30, right? Hee hee!


So there you have it... Thanks for stopping by my little blog on your hopping journey. Your next stop is Amarilys' Blog. I can't wait to see what everyone came up with for this challenge. I hope you enjoy the hop! 




Here's the blog hop list for reference:
