Good morning, well I've been using up that counterfeiting kit since I started this challenge at the beginning of the month, I've now officially run out and will definitely be making my kit bigger next month.
Now another fun layout, the giant rose has been on my desk for quite literally months and because I had only one and it was stupidly big I didn't honestly think I'd be able to use it, however chopping it in half and splitting it over the layout means that finally (fanfare please), it is used!
The story behind the layout is just another shot of Portmeirion when we were there, it's such a fabulous place to visit.
Next up using the 'negative' from a die cut, I'd cut three square bracket shapes out of my kit to use elsewhere and realised as I'd cut them relatively squarely (unusual for me) that I could use them to put the component parts of the layout, a photo, paper for the hand written journalling and a quote.
This photo was taken in front of the area where the original Hagrid's Hut was filmed at Alnwick Castle, the title is strategically placed to cover up the bright red bags of Harry Potter goodies we'd bought whilst in the castle shop!
