Counterfeit Kit Mini Challenge Pen-to-Paper

Counterfeit Kit Club's mini challenge this month was to basically make a page with only journaling, no photos. I have done this type of page before and find it very therapeutic.
Since the colors in my kit this month fit with a family wedding, I used this opportunity to journal
about the bittersweet occasion.
Basically, the story is sister passed away in 2007. She had been married to Danny(my brother-in-law) for 31 years. This past May, he married my sister's best friend, Diane, whom I also know and love. While I was happy for them, it was also painful.

I used an old Daisy D's sheet of patterned paper from my kit and basically let that do the work.
I sliced a hole in the side of the heart to slide my journaling sheet in there, inked and scalloped the edges of the cardstock and used some stamps from my kit to add a little something to the page. Very old sticker letters from CI and some Hero Art stamps finished off the title. TFL!


  1. Thank you so much for sharing that story. What a lovely tribute to your sister. You layout is so sweet and soft. You did a lovely job.


  2. I am so sorry for the loss of your sister. I am glad that creating this layout helped you get through a tough time.
