Mini Challenge #2 ~ Playing Favourites

The Counterfeit Kit Club posted a really fun challenge this month for the blog hop!  It was to spend some time on your favourite manufacturer's blog looking for inspiration and then..... create.  I have to admit that I spend lots of time on many of the manufacturer's blogs getting scraplifting ideas.   The tough part of this challenge was deciding what manufacturer was my favourite.  Since this is an impossible thing for me to determine, I decided to go with the Jilllibean Soup blog since my counterfeit kit had so many of this manufacturer's paper in it.

I found this wonderful LO by Kim Moreno and decided to scraplift the design instead of creating from a sketch.  I love the simple linear design and loved that it incorporated tags.


Here is what I created featuring my sweet Gus. :)


Now hop on over to Crystal's blog for some more inspiration!

Wishing you all a wonderful day with some time in it to look at your favourite site and plan some scraplifting  ideas! ;)

Happy Scrapping!!  Jen :)

  28. What a cool challenge! I just love that border punch - who makes it? And how are the dogs doing? Is Lady getting better with her housebreaking? Molly and Maggie got into a fight about a month ago (Molly the dachshund got territorial over her food and attacked Maggie, leading to retaliation and $500 worth of surgery for Molly to drain an infected wound) and it was awful. It lasted only a few seconds, but we've been on high alert ever since, even though they seem to be doing better with each other.
